The apple mouse has only one click in the hardware... but, through the 
software (settings) the apple hardware 'know' which side of the mouse 
you are pushing over. You can configure the mouse through the settings 
to make the left or right side function alternately. The same is true 
for the magic mouse (wireless, swipe-able); it also only has one clicker 
but 'senses' which side of the mouse the fingers are over when the push 
occurs. At any rate, right mousing on the mac has been happening for 
several years.
