Just had a newbie question.

If you try to do the two finger scrolling near the left and right edges of the trackpad, it won't work, right?

I just tried and I could do it on the right side, but not the left.

Hmm.

On my PB it seems to work on either side, anywhere, as long as I use two fingers. I really like this feature - beats the usual Windows trackpad scrolling for sure.

I'm thinking the censor for the trackpad is in the middle, so if my fingers go to the very left/right edge of the trackpad, the signal from my fingers gets weaker and that's why it doesn't work well, compared to if I do it in the center of the trackpad.
