Magic Trackpad is here! iMac and Mac Pro users no longer jealous of MacBook Pro Users

Apple Magic TrackPad

One of the most innovative thing that was included in Macbook and Macbook Pro is their Trackpad, where you can have multi-touch gestures that will do scrolling, flipping and zooming. This is something that no iMac or Mac Pro users can have, Apple released the first ever multi-touch Magic Mouse last year, but the gesture you can use are still quite limited.

Yesterday Apple released their new Apple Magic Trackpad, it is virtually taken out from Macbook Pro and reproduced into this new Apple Magic Trackpad, with bluetooth added. Now you can use the full multi-touch gestures that you normally use on Macbook Pro, swipe, pinch to zoom, scroll and more.

So who will benefit and what use will it have?

With Apple launching this Magic Trackpad, I can see users replacing it for their magic mouse or normal mouse, as anyone who have used Macbook Pro Trackpad will say that it is the best trackpad they have ever use. It can be said to be as easy to use as any mouse but can do more functions like pinch to zoom, swipe and even scroll with 2 or 3 fingers.

So who else will be interested in buying? Home Entertainment System owners! They have been looking for something like that for years!!! If your Home Entertainment System, let’s say a Mac Mini is plugged to your Television, it is not easy to use a mouse. You need to have a mouse pad or a table to do scrolling and pointing. With this Apple Magic Trackpad, you can use it on your lap and scroll and point like any other laptop you have. I believe this will be huge for Home Entertainment System users.

Apple Magic Trackpad can be buy from any Apple Store now or you can go to Apple website to purchase it.

Squeeze reduced my total harddisk size by 20gb!

Remember Squeeze from latenitesoft? It now saved my total harddisk size by 20gb! Meaning I have 20gb more space to download stuff! How amazing!

1 month ago when MacHeist gave our Squeeze for free before its nano-bundle. I have grabbed a copy of it, and during that time i have posted how much it actually squeezed my files. It was 175mb.

Now, after 1 month, Squeeze for Mac not just saved me 175mb. It actually saved 21.8gb! And it is still squeezing as I am blogging this post! How amazing is that?

What can I say about this software? I will say this is great. Especially for users who are on Macbook or Macbook Pro, where harddisk space is so limited and important. Squeezing the whole document or download folder will definately help in saving space.

What is best is that although the files in folders are compressed, but they still can be access without any problem. No unzipping, no nothing. When Squeeze is squeezing your files, it did not took up too much CPU power, to be honest, i don’t sense any lag nor slowness, I don’t even know it is actually compressing my files.

So what are you waiting for? Download Squeeze now at latenitesoft!
