Apple's new multitouch trackpad Video Transcript
>> We've got a gorgeous, large, multi touch, glass track pad that we've been working on for a long time that's about to see the light of day in our new notebooks. It's 39 percent larger tracking area than we've ever had before. It's multi touch for gestures. It's glass for silky smooth travel. And we've optimized the co-efficiency of friction on the glass so it's just really beautiful. Now you could say "Where's the button?" Well the entire track pad is the button now. So if you've ever had to search for the button, you no longer have to search for the button. The whole track pad's the button. It gives you more area on the track pad and it keeps you from hunting for that button. You can get multi buttons via software, so if you're a Windows user or coming from Windows and you like that right click button, no problem. Just it on in Preferences and you've got it. And we've added some new 4 finger gestures that are really nice. So let me run through some of the gestures that we've shipped on prior notebooks and show you the new ones we've added. Of course we have 1 finger gestures and we have some nice 2 finger gestures. And we have some nice 3 finger gestures. And we've added some 4 finger gestures now. So Expose: a great way to get in and out of Expose. And a great way to get to out switching almost instantly. So pretty nice: pretty nice. So, a multi touch glass track pad: a new track pad for notebooks.
