Cracking open the Apple Magic TrackpadWith the iPhone's release, Apple introduced the masses to Multi-Touch (using multiple-finger gestures to navigate the device's UI). In 2008, they brought Multi-Touch to laptops with the launch of the Macbook Air and updates to the MacBook Pro. In 2010, Apple is trying to bring Multi-Touch to the desktop, with the Magic Trackpad.
Come along as Bill Detwiler cracks open the Apple Magic Trackpad in this teardown gallery.
