Use a Logitech MediaPlay mouse via USB Overdrive System
The Logitech MediaPlay mouse is a good looking, comfortable, full featured wireless mouse from Logitech. It features backlit media buttons (play/pause, FF/RW, volume up/down), horizontal scrolling, and "Universal forward/back buttons." The only problem is that it doesn't work with the Mac, so Logitech says.

The Logitech Control Center software does not recognize the mouse, but USB Overdrive does. It will allow you to use horizontal scrolling, the media button, and the universal forward/back buttons. The other media buttons don't work, yet, but maybe the next release of USB Overdrive will support them. I wrote an article about my experience with this mouse if you'd like to know more.

I wouldn't count on USB Overdrive being updated any time soon. The developer seems to have put this software on the back, back, burner.

More like on the bun warmer.

There is an army of people waiting on this developer to add bluetooth support to this app, too. waiting, and waiting, and ...

USB Overdrive is incompatible with a lot of games. It screws around with all HID devices.

Any news on mac support for this mouse? I saw this mouse in a store the other day and i got really excited about it. I was so dissapointed to see that it won't work on Os X.
