os x lion are they having a laugh

Sun, Apr 1, 2012

Seriously, are they taking the mickey? I upgraded to OS X Lion and thought the browser had crashed. No way could I scroll down. Then I realised they’d decided my laptop was a phone and I had to scroll as if on the iPhone. Excuse me? Are they having a laugh? Apparently they call it ‘natural’ scrolling. I call it crap and here’s how to go back to a really natural scrolling movement:

System Preferences -> Trackpad

Uncheck this garbage:

“When using gestures to scroll or navigate, move content in the direction of finger movement”

You wouldn’t have liked to have seen which finger I was moving when they did that.
