Some Information About the Magic Trackpad

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Other Apple Hardware" @ 07:00 AM

"The Magic Trackpad has just shown up and Apple has already issued a driver update for it."

The update will also enable the inertial scrolling and three-finger dragging (if you want to move windows around) on MacBooks and MacBook Pros with the multi-touch trackpads. You will need to have 10.6.4 though to get it working properly, and if you are curious to see if it will work on your Macbook, Edible Apple has a list of all the compatible versions. You can find more info at Apple, and download the update as well [link].

And to answer a question some of you may have since it is Bluetooth, the folks at Gearlog tried to get the Trackpad to work with an iPhone and iPad. And the result is no, it doesn't work with either and is an OS X only product. One additional note, the buttons for the Trackpad are on the feet not on the surface, which is an interesting design feature, but it makes sense.

"In addition to today's Aperture update, Apple has released a series of printer driver updates. Brother Printer Drivers for Mac OS X v10.6 weighs in at 100MB and includes the latest Brother printing and scanning software for Snow Leopard."

The updates came out yesterday, one set for Brother Printers found here, and one set for Samsung printers found here. Of course you can also get them via the Software Update feature on OS X.

Unofficial Magic Mouse Driver for Windows

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (OS X)" @ 12:00 PM

"Apple unveiled its Mighty Mouse replacement, the Magic Mouse, last month alongside new versions of the iMac, Mac mini and entry-level Macbook. The mouse was well-received, perhaps due in part to the disappointment most felt about its predecessor. Better tracking and touch gestures combined to deliver a much better experience overall."

The original Mighty Mouse (the one without the cape) came with Windows drivers, however the Magic Mouse did not. Now you can get them, albeit at your own risk since they are unofficial drivers. Well, to clarify they aren't officially released drivers, although it is official software. The drivers came from a recent Boot Camp update using an unrar tool to free up a 32bit and 64bit version of the driver, however the 64bit version is broken according to the article. Magical.

http://www.appleinsider.com/blogs/m...ow_leopard.html

"Apple this week released new drivers for HP printers in its latest operating system, Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. The file, labeled version 2.2., is a 383MB download available from Apple."

This update can be downloaded from Apple, and requires Mac OS 10.6.1. Short and sweet, but if you want more info on printer drivers from Apple, they have a special page set up.
