<BLOCKQUOTE>quote:</font><HR>When having to use the mouse pad on my power book (e.g. air plane trips), I found like most people, that is much worse than using a real mouse. I happened, though, to discover an easier way of using the pad. When sliding my index finder on the pad, I then would lift it up, at the same time touch the opposite corner with my middle finger. This very quickly moved the mouse across the screen. Although it might not be so accurate, when going from the dock to my hard drive icon, it is much faster.

[Editor's note: I tried this a bit on my iBook, and while I could get the cursor to jump rapidly, I couldn't get it to reliably jump to the bottom of the screen. Your mileage may vary...]

I have been playing with this for a few minutes, and it has really sped things up for me, especially when going from the middle of the screen to my dock, which I keeep on the left hand side of the screen.
