    Hehehe... :D

    *considers carefully whether to push this joke any further, at the risk of incurring mod ire*

    Semi-seriously...it might have scroll zones at the edge of the trackpad. Did you try that (running your finger along the lower and right edges, most likely, for horizontal and vertical scrolling, respectively).
