To me the worst thing about a netbook is the fact that I always seem to put my palm on the track pad and move the cursor. That makes me end up tying in places that I don't want to type when I am working. Synaptics has announced some new tech for track pads at Computex that will eliminate that issue.
The new tech is called PC TouchPad-Is and can recognize touch input form up to four fingers at once. The coolest part is that the track pad can tell whether it’s a finger or a palm on the pad. When a palm presses the track pad, it simply doesn’t work.
Synaptics is also showing off new tech for small machines like netbooks that eliminates the buttons for right and left click to give more room for gestures. The track pad itself clicks for the buttons. That sounds cool to me.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
