    Agree with you on the Magic Trackpad. I so loved the trackpad on my MacBook Pro that I wished I had a desktop version of it. The Magic Trackpad fits the bill and has totally replaced my Magic Mouse on my Mac Pro. The Magic Mouse was half way there, but the touchpad doesn’t have the compromises and fully supports all the gestures.

    As far a clicking goes what I like about it over the Magic Mouse is that you don’t have to mechanical click. So you can lightly tap/double tap to perform a mouse click without even pushing down on the surface. I find this much better in use, especially when doing a lot of clicking.

    As far as mouse tracking goes there are plenty of 3rd party solutions for adjusting above and beyond the Apple presets. Having three monitors the Apple settings would make it take repeated swipes to get from one screen to another. I use the free Better Touch Tool to do this and it even supports the Magic Mouse and the new Trackpad giving you more gestures than the Apple Touchpad preference pane.

    In reference to magazines on the iPad: Have you tried Zinio? I find Zinio is a good way to subscribe to magazines. I have started reading much more since I got my iPad and downloaded the Zinio app. Different publishers use the Zinio app in unique ways. It’s not just a matter of reading the mag. Some imbed videos and playlists. And they are not all the same. Try it. I think you’ll like it.
