Apple Another solid quarter for Apple. "The Company sold 35.1 million iPhones in the quarter, representing 88 percent unit growth over the year-ago quarter. Apple sold 11.8 million iPads during the quarter, a 151 percent unit increase over the year-ago quarter. The Company sold 4 million Macs during the quarter, a 7 percent unit increase over the year-ago quarter. Apple sold 7.7 million iPods, a 15 percent unit decline from the year-ago quarter." The official Apple Money Pile: $110 billion. That's where those 47% profit margins you pay go to!

Tell me about it. Linux doesn't even *recognise* the Sentelic touchpad on my ZenBook (only as a regular ps/2 mouse).


Hopefully that won't be a problem in the near future. Kernel 3.2, that will be available on the new Ubuntu tomorrow, will support my work laptop's trackpad and, if I'm not mistaken, your. Rolling-release distributions have this problem solved for months now.

Ooh that would be quite welcome. I have Ubuntu 12.04 running right now (the beta or RC or whatever it was), but it's not on 3.2 yet.

I've got a 2008 Macbook, and Ubuntu 11.10 support for the touchpad is really poor. I've hacked away at it for hours using forums & knowledgebase for support but it's still a real horrible thing to use.

OS X on the same machine gives perfect control over the pointer. It's a damn shame.

No good. Supposedly 3.3 works... Which won't be in Ubuntu for a while. Ugh.
