Now we’re not saying the iPad in any way shape or form needs this. We all know the idea behind the touch interface and it’s benefits in alleviating the need for a traditional mouse and keyboard.

But that still doesn’t mean there isn’t some great functionality in there if you’re curious. What you’ll need is a jailbroken iPad and a bluetooth mouse. An Apple Magic Mouse was used for this test. If you’re on iOS 3.2.1, this sadly will not work for you right now. From Cydia, download BT Stack Mouse. Once you run Mouse and select your device you should be ready to roll. You can also dig into the Settings/Mouse and Settings/Activator in order to customize the speed, middle, and right click options. I also found that setting the right click to the home button to be extremely useful. Now if we could just get some brilliant mind to crack open the functionality in the shiny new “magic” trackpad with the iPad, we’d be set. Let us know in the comments how this works for you.
