    I downloaded an osx update a few weeks ago that people wrote about here on the forum and that did not suport any four finger swipe. Today I checked for new updates and there was two updates, one with a few Raw camera plugins and one osx update that was 377 mb. I installed them and then four finger swipe was there. I live in Sweden, on the pic it says "Fyra fingrar" its the swedish for "four finger". Has no one else done this update?

    Hej!
    this update you speak of has been out for a few weeks now.

    Not realy. If I watch youtube videos or HD material the fans go up to 6000-6500 rpm and the temp is 70-80 degrees. If I use Safari ,mail and Itunes its 50 degrees somthing and the fans is on 2500 rpm. Do you have the four finger swipe?

    Yes I have 4 finger swipe.
    Its a nice option but not amazing.

    As I type this via safari my heat is at 55C /2502 rpm .....
    thats only with safari open .. no other programs

    But generally any flash or video puts me up in 85C / 6500 rpm

    Thats tru, its not amazing but it was alot of talk about it here on the forum when it was missing and i thought it was weird that no one comment on it now when its fixed.

    My tempeture is slightly lower, now I have only safari open and its 44 degrees. But its tru, when I watch flash or HD it gets up to about 80 degrees and the fan spins at 6500 rpm like you said. But if I stop watch the video it goes down again pretty quick.
