Important Things To Know About Touchpads Before Buying A Laptop

Hello friends my today's post is on laptops touch pad technologies. I am sure my today's article helps you in choosing a good laptop.

So the story is that when we goes for buying laptop our focus is totally on the hardware. You’ll be told what the processor is, you’ll be told the size of the hard drive, and you’ll be told the RAM installed.But no one ask about the touch pad and about touch pads my today's aim is to guide you about the touch pads technology.

The Basics Of Touch pad Technology:

The first touchpads made their debut in the early 1990s, and were one of several responses to the problem of providing an portable input solution with a portable computer (track pointers and trackballs were also common). The first laptop to have a touch pad –or track pad, as it was officially called at the time – was the Apple Power Book 500. 
Modern touch pads use a technology called capacitive touch. This is the same tech used by most modern touchscreens, and it works by detecting the electrical current of a human finger as it comes into contact with the touchpad surface. This allows for smooth, easy navigation that doesn’t rely on physical pressure.

What Are The Differences Between Touch pads: 
While virtually all touchpads use the same basic technology to detect input, there are a wide variety of ways to use this technology, and a wide variety of touchpad sizes and textures.
The most important feature to look for in a touchpad is multitouch gesture support. Although this has become a common extra, it’s not ubiquitous. For example, I recently tested a MSI GT680R gaming laptop, priced at about $1,500, which did not have multitouch. Determining if a laptop supports this feature is easy if you can use it hands-on. Just try scrolling down a webpage with your middle and index fingers.
If a laptop doesn’t have multi-touch, it should at least have scroll space available. This is a small vertical area, usually on the right side of the touchpad, that’s exclusively designed to translate finger movement into an up/down scrolling motion.

  Finally, the touchpad buttons are important. The best option is a touchpad that offers two separate physical mouse buttons, but many touchpads use what is called a rocker-style button. This means there is one individual with a rocker in the middle, which means the button operates like a seesaw. Rocker-style buttons look sexy, but they can be annoying to use because pressing the button near the rocker requires more force than pressing the button at the edge.

Facebook Testing New Feature, Charging For Popular Post


Mark is thinking about money. The social networking site is testing a new feature in New Zealand that would make comments more prominent on a user’s newsfeed. This new feature will earn more money to Facebook and allow users to get more visibility for their posts and  bring extra attention to a specific Facebook status update, photo or video.
When it arrived on website, people thought it as spam. After that Facebook spokeswoman Mia Garlick confirmed it was a new “feature” it was testing. Users who clicked on the option were offered the options to pay through Paypal or by credit card.

“We’re constantly testing new features across the site. This particular test is simply to gauge people’s interest in this method of sharing with their friends,” she said.
According to Facebook, the company is testing a variety of price points including free, but the free sample may just be an attempt to attract more users into the program. This time Facebook is charging $2 to highlight a post on Facebook which will be shown in yellow background.Facebook accepts payments from major credit card providers and PayPal.
This is the first time when Facebook is trying to earn money from postings by regular users and comes as it is gearing up for a public listing which is expected to value the company at about US$90 billion.
