    Default Software Update to Fix Trackpad Issues on Macbook and Macbook Pro Released


    Just got a tip from a user of one of those shiny new Macbooks / Macbook Pros. He was checking Software Updates and low and behold Apple has issued an update to fix the unrecognized clicks on the new glass trackpads named "Trackpad Firmware Update 1.0."

    This firmware update addresses an issue where trackpad clicks may not be recognized on MacBook (Late 2008) and MacBook Pro (Late 2008) systems.

    When installation is complete, the updater application will launch automatically. Follow the instructions in the updater application to complete the update process. (If Software Update requires a restart, the updater application will launch after you log in.)
    Have any of you installed the update? Are your trackpad issues gone?

    thanks Arash for the tip

    in about 15 minutes worth of use, it seems like they fixed the problem. It no longer skips around for me and was accurate everytime i click....

    Got a new MacBook Pro about a month ago when they came out. I have noticed this issue since day one. It has never bugged me that bad but is defiantly noticeable. After this update everything seems to be just fine now. No more clicking the button 4 times to open up a application.

    Thanks Apple
