I had begun to hate my Magic Mouse, as scrolling was triggered too easy in Photoshop, gCal etc. MagicPrefs helped me regain mental sanity: I disabled single-finger scrolling, then enabled two-finger scrolling. Win!

(Can’t beat the price, also!)

This is a must have app for Magic Mouse owners. Unlocks the full potential of the device.

is anyone having trouble with VirtualBox once MagicPrefs is installed? I installed MagicPrefs and my mouse went hay-wirer in VM (Windows 7 guest).
