MagicPrefs

I have had the Magic mouse for close to a year now, at first it took some getting used to. My resting a finger would often zoom something or scroll the page as I relaxed my hand. As i got used to the mouse I quickly realized that the speed setting was maxed out and that I needed more!

Enter MagicPrefs
