Hack allows for Magic Mouse scrolling in Windows

A hack that allows Apple's Magic Mouse to have scrolling functionality in Windows is now reportedly available.

Self-styled geek tech Website uneasysilence.com reports a way to extract both the 32-bit, and 64-bit Windows drivers in the latest Apple Bluetooth Update 1.0 for Windows by using WinRar, a popular compression utility.

The hack reportedly works on any PC running Windows XP (32-bit) to Windows 7 without issues.

The Bluetooth Update 1.0 for Windows improves the performance of the Apple Bluetooth devices when running Microsoft Windows XP and Windows Vista on a Mac computer using Boot Camp.

Apple has not officially announced Windows support for the Magic Mouse.

The mouse, also bundled with the newly restyled iMacs, comes with laser tracking that promises to be more sensitive and responsive on more surfaces than traditional optical tracking.
