    I was playing with the Powerbooks in CompUSA yesterday and I noticed something.

    The two-fingered scrolling works well, however I could not control click/right click by placing two fingers on the trackpad and clicking. Was this a setting or are all of the new Powerbooks like that? I have iScroll installed on mine since my PB came out before two fingered scrolling, and if I click anywhere when I hold two fingers on the trackpad, it acts like a control click. I don't think I could live without this feature after having used it for awhile now.

    Maybe installing iScroll on a new PB would enable this feature?

    Your quite right you cant do that. Apples reasoning is as soon as you place more than one finger on the trackpad it starts scrolly mode :p. You cant click scrollers (cept those pesky scroll mice, just to ruin the point i'm trying to make).

    Also if I remember correctly, iScroll will not work with post-2005 iBooks or Powerbooks.

    I think iScroll2 works on all the new iBooks, as that's what it's made for. As for powerbooks, not sure.
