>I thought it was just turned off

30 Jul


Apparently all those times I used frends’ iBooks or Powerbooks it wasn’t that they had the trackpad scroll features disabled, THE TRACKPADS WERE INCAPABLE of such basic functionality until now. I remember my dad buying a trackpad for his desktop in 19 fucking 97 and it had the option to use the bottom and sides of the pad for scrolling way back then. This is just stupid. I’ve been using the vertical scrolling part of the trackpad on my tablet pc since the day I discovered it. I can’t imagine not having that option. IT’s like a mouse without a scroll wheel, halfways useless. At least they have that…oh wait. Holy shit, Apple, get with the frickin’ program.
