Hi this is Gary with MacMost Now. On today's episode, let's take a look on the new Magic tTrackpad. So, here I got the new magic trackpad from Apple. This is basically a mouse replacement, and acts just like a trackpad on a MacBook Pro. It's pretty much the same shape as the Apple wireless keyboard or the standard Apple USB keyboard. It's got the battery compartment in the back, what gives an angle when sitting on your desk. In fact, you can put right next to the current wireless keyboard, and it fits right in. Almost makes it looks like one device. It's a pretty large surface, larger than what you have on a MacBook, at least the smaller MacBooks. You can use the entire thing, and use multi-touch gestures just as you can in a MacBook trackpad. In addition, the entire thing is a button, it's not just you tap on the pad like old trackpads did, but actually the presses slightly is makes a nice click that you can feel, and hear. You can also use it for a right click or second mouse button by clicking the two fingers, or clicking in a certain area of the trackpad. For a lot of settings you can customize, let's take a look of those. Here in the System Preferences, the new trackpad section. You get this when you update your Desktop Mac with the magic trackpad update. You may look and see that is familiar because it is pretty much the same thing as you get on the MacBooks, MacBook Pros. You can select many different options here, and on the right side you get videos that show you basics according to where your mouse is over here on the left. So, in addition, you will be able to set the speed of Tracking, Double-Click, and Scrolling, just as you can with a mouse. You got a lot of different options here. For instance, if you like to actually just tap, and not actually press down on the trackpad to click you can select that. You also could select a Secondary Click buy clicking either on the bottom of right or left corner, so an actual area for the Secondary Click. In addition you can do two fingers click for Secondary Click here. I'll show you all the different things you can do. You can Scroll with two fingers, you can rotate like you can do on an iPhone, or iPad, and pinch as well. You can screen zoom with this, holding down the control key. There is also Three Fingers controls you can do to navigate, or drag, and even Four Fingers that you can use to launch Expose or to switch applications. Now, when the magic mouse came out a lot of developers came out with third party extensions to OS 10, where you can do all sort of different things with the surface of the magic mouse. I bet you, those same developers are working on things for the Magic Trackpad as well. I can say that I've been using it since getting it for a replacement for my magic mouse, and I loved it. I have a MacBook Pro as well, so it's nice to have unify interface between the two machines. You will find it's very easy to control with a lot of preciseness, I've been able to actually just go ahead and use all my applications normal, and I don't miss using a mouse at all. Of course, the existence of the Magic Trackpad has, like, speculation that could be used for others Apple devices. For instance in your Apple TV could use this as a remote control. Even though you already use the current Apple TV with an iPhone app, and do all sort of gestures. So, everything is kind of set up, I can even perhaps the current Apple TV updating been able to use this. It does have the big advantage over a mouse, and that you can use it holding away from your desk. So, to run presentation for instance, you can sit, and hold this in one hand, and switch with it. Of course with the mouse you really can't do that. You need a surface to put the mouse on. It is a little pricey, it's $69 dollars, and I hope maybe in years to come the price comes down a little bit. Of course it's also comes as an option now for new desktop machines. So you can perhaps get it as part of your package. I also can see Apple building this into the future keyboard. So you have a single keyboard trackpad device, rather than a separate keyboard, and mouse device. I can speculate that now we have a Magic Trackpad, and the magic mouse, and 60% of Macs are laptops with the trackpad anyway, the future versions always tend use touch gestures even more than they current do. I hope you like this look at the Magic Trackpad. This is Gary Rosenzweig for MacMost Now.
