It has a middle button. It's behind the scroll wheel. Clicking the scroll wheel changes the gear behavior so they couldn't make that the middle button like normal. But there is a functioning middle button on this mouse.

You just have to tell the logitech software to use it as such is all.

The mouse is awesome.

They will probably be adding background notifications so that IM apps and the like can send notifications to your phone while they're closed. This is probably ideal for that type of operation anyways.

There are definitely other things that should be able to run in the background though (Pandora for one).

Also, you can already change the current song (if you're playing it through the iPod) without closing an app.

In your settings, assign double Home to Music Controls. Then while in another app, double tap home and you'll get a pop-up with prev, play/pause, and next.

Lastly, if your phone is jailbroken, you should check out iRealQuickSMS for replying to text messages while you're using another app. Really great utility. It is ~$5, but definitely worth it to me and I don't even text very often.

Exchange support seems to work great if your exchange server is setup to support it. Everyone I know who has an iPhone plus Exchange (including myself) never complains about it except for one friend who can't sync at all....but it's a server configuration issue for his company...not an iPhone issue.
