Trackpad Is Intuitive And Programmable

GlidePoint for Macintosh is a stationary pointing device that translates finger movement across a touch surface into cursor movement on screen.

The device features several innovations that help obtain maximum functionality. GlideExtend senses when to continue drag, draw or highlight functions if a user's finger hits the edge of the trackpad. GlideSets allows one to customize the trackpad for individual applications by programming buttons for specific functions in different programs.

The product ships with a split cable, allowing the daisy chaining of multiple devices. The Mac version offers the same easy installation, wristrest and tutorial supplied with the IBM-compatible version. Cirque Corp., Salt Lake City, UT, (801) 467-1100,
