    What would you control with the mouse? There's no cursor.

    There is no REAL point in using a mouse with the tablet, it will make the whole experience slower as its ment for fingers. I understand keyboard will help but not mouse, sorry.

    If there was a cursor then it would probably work. But iPhone OS doesn't use a cursor.

    Instead of a cursor it could have like a virtual finger on the display.
    That would be sick. Sick as in mentally retarded.

    Once there is a jailbreak for iPad you can use BTstack mouse.

    What's the point of a mouse for the iPad? Unless somebody gets a cursor on there, it would be useless. Plus, even if they do find some way to get the magic mouse working with the iPad, it would still be much slower than just using your fingers.

    I guess it's good for people with OCD, so they don't get too many fingerprints?

    also, i guess its good to use WITH pages and keyboard maybe...easier highlighting?
