Posted in Computers by Shane McGlaun on June 1st, 2010

When I first started using my netbook when I travelled for work I often ended up hitting the track pad with the palm of my hand. That made whatever I was typing end up in a place other than where I wanted it to be. I ended up having to turn the track pad off when I was doing lots of typing to stop that from happening.

Synaptics has announced new technology at Computex that will stop accidental activation of the track pad by the palm of your hand. The tech is called TouchPad-IS and is capable of recognizing up to four fingers.

If I have to work from my laptop or my netbook for any length of time, I almost always take a laptop stand with me. I hate looking down at the screen; it gives me a headache after a while. The catch is that most notebook stands are so bulky you can’t fit them into a notebook bag.
