According to some of Macrumors and our own commenters (and as postulated yesterday), the Magic Mouse has begun shipping, thereby meeting Apple’s stated goal of "End of October". You can of course order one at Amazon and save a buck while helping your friendly neighborhood bloggers.
The mouse itself has gotten good reviews, though many will miss the Exposé buttons from previous Apple mice. Apple updated its Magic Mouse software yesterday though support for the new mice is built into the upcoming OS 10.6.2 upgrade..
