Mac OS X Earlier this week, Apple released the first developer preview of Mac OS X 10.7 Lion. At the same time, Apple listed a number of new features we hadn't yet heard about, which are quite interesting. There are two themes: bringing iOS to Mac OS X, and adding features other operating systems have had for ages - except in such a way that you can actually use them. Update: Fixed that scrolling thing. It's the other way around of course.

Isn't the story also wrong. The story say you have to move the finger DOWN to scroll DOWN, which is how it works today on every desktop OS. On a touch interface though, you have move your finger UP to scroll DOWN.

Btw. what is the bug purpose of uniting the two? Is there really a case where the app can't tell the difference between TOUCH and MOVE, and SCROLL. Only a desktop peripherial would send SCROLL events, a touch interface should send TOUCH and MOVE events.

BTW, I hear there's an option to disable the inverted scrolling. In Sys Prefs->Trackpad->"When using gestures to scroll or navigate, move content in the direction of finger movement". But I can't confirm because I might be subject to NDAs ;)

Actually I heard through the grapevine that the option might be under System Preferences, Mouse...not Trackapad.

But that's just speculation of course due to NDA.
