Anyone know if i could get that wonderful two finger trackpad function that the new powerbooks have on my ibook? is it just a trackpad driver?

I seem to recall iScroll not working with all ibooks and having issues with Tiger.

Search for SideTrack at VersionTracker or MacUpdate--you can do all kinds of stuff with it...

I can vouch for iScroll as well. Works great on my iBook and it is a much more elegant solution than the dedicated scrollpads on most PC laptops.

It's all about saving time.

Think about it. Everytime you sit down in front of a computer, you probably visit some of the same sites. Each time, you scroll past the ads to get to the content. Imagine, opening a single webpage or application, and all of the new posts/updates are brought to you rather than you having to go find them. It's an incredible time-saving technique.

I personally recommend NetNewsWire .

iscroll works great in firefox for me, but not in safari. for whatever reason it just doesn't scroll as well as the others. But I never use safari so it doesn't really bother me.
