Apple's Magic Trackpad

buy Apple's magit trackpad

one annoying thing about trackpad is the feel of rubbing finger on it. But Apple's latest trackpad solved that. It feels good rubbing on it. Not sure exactly what's the material. Somewhat like the surface of something with thick glossy paint

also, Apple's trackpad is bludsuking expensive. As everything Apple.

by the way, sometimes in the past, i thought about paint, and it occurred to me, paint is just a kinda glue. colored glue.

just wrote a profile on my patreon https://www.patreon.com/xahlee thank you all for putting $ there
