    Did you know what you can enable tapping now?? So now you dont have to click the bar? Just go into your Mouse settings...I JUST found out today!

    Sorry, but I'm just so excited.

    even if its an old feature, we all rejoice in your discory. although i disable it. i hate it when im using the track pad and open something by accident. ugh

    but for others i guess its a time saver.

    Ugh. How can anyone stand using the trackpad as a button? All you end up doing is inadvertently selecting things.

    You can also not type topic in all caps by tapping the capslock key. Now you've learned two things!

    :D

    I remember trackpad-tapping on my PowerBook 190cs. That's SO 1995. :p

    Wow, and with such a bold headline I thought this would actually be important.

    Is the trackpad really that mysterious? Didn't we just have a thread claiming this same miraculous discovery recently?

    yeah sidetrack is awesome.... tapping with the trackpad sucks tho.

    i only use the vertical scrolling... cause honestly - how often do you have to horizontally scroll... even with a 12" pb?
