I love the new MacBookPro, but the trackpad clicks so loud that people on public transport stare at me. I’m not the only one with the issue. An enterprising user on the Apple Discussion forums remembers a similar problem and fix for the trackpad from earlier MacBook models. The fix in this case involves removing your battery and sticking a piece of paper between the pad and the chassis. It works, and here is my solution captured at the moment of repair:
I am currently watching the Macworld 2008 Keynote speech, and Steve Jobs – though starting off a bit slow – wowed the gadget hungry crowd in his usual fashion. Besides some new Apple TV innovations (limited to the US – bah!), iPhone/iPod updates and the new Timecapsule; the key component of the speech was the introduction of the new Macbook Air. Although I run my servers on OpenBSD, I write my blog from my Mac and prefer my Powerbook over all the other computers I use.
