Apple supplies drivers for Windows running on a Mac with Bootcamp. I read that it doesn't work on Windows running on a PC.

Well, I just got one and it's great! Feels just like the old Fingerworks pad except my fingers glide a little easier on the Glass surface. Apples default gestures are limited but I'm using the alpha version of BetterTouchTool that adds a full compliment of gestures and customizations and it's workin...

There is a third party application, BetterTouchTool that adds a whole slew of customizations to the laptop trackpad and it'd going to be updated for the Magic Trackpad soon. It adds all the gestures that the iGesture pad had. http://blog.boastr.net/ I'm sure someone will write drivers for PC's befor...

Engadget reports that a new Apple product has appeared in the U.S. Federal Communications Commission's online database, and while it is not possible to positively identify the product from the filings published on the FCC's site, it does in fact appear to be the "Magic Trackpad" or "M...

I have a powered port and I've checked by limiting the amount of connections. I found though, that the right mouse button continues to work. Just the keyboard and left mouse button locks up. Both on the touchstream and regular keyboards and mice. As soon as I unplug the touchstream everything frees ...

Touchstream locks up usb port

I find my touchstream periodically locks up the usb ports so that everything stops working. If I unplug the touchstream, usb is freed up and works normally. I then replug the touchstream and it works fine also until it decides to lock up the usb again. Anyone know what causes this and if there's a f...

Thought a about Apple's possible use of the technology

One of Apple's biggest markets is in graphics yet they don't have an Apple drawing tablet. Other companys already have laptops that take pen input. What Apple could really use is a touch sensitive notebook screen could take pen input. If you're an artist working in, pastels for example, part of the ...

Apple will announce a new revolutionary mystery product on Wed Sept. 7.

I just found out that the company is dead!

I told some friends about the touchstream keyboard and they wanted to see it so yesterday I brought it to work. The guards at the gate were intrigued and asked me about it. Several people at work were excited about it and planned to buy one but then, whoops! I checked the website. What a shock! My g...
