Further to our recent article about scrolling tips you might not have known, the Apple Knowledgebase yielded up an article for those who have the new touchpads found on the 2008 MacBook Pro and on the MacBook Air.
These new touchpads are based on the same technology that's in the iPhone and iPod Touch and they can do far more than just move your mouse pointer and scroll. They can scroll horizontally, use a pinching movement for zooming in or out, use two finger rotating for rotating pictures or preview pages, and a three finger "swipe" movement for moving forwards and backwards in places like Safari!
Does anybody know if these gestures can be configured to do different things in different applications? I very very much wish they'd release a peripheral trackpad so I could use one without paying for an iPod Touch which I can't afford!
