Move Magic Trackpad Between Macs...

Move Magic Trackpad Between Macs

Christopher Breen at Macworld just published an article showing how to use one Magic Trackpad between multiple Macs, which I did not realize you could do!?! Very cool...I have not tried it out yet, but I assume you can also do the same with Apple wireless keyboards?

In the future, I plan to put together a detailed guide that covers much of detail between how the Apple Bluetooth Keyboard and Trackpad work.

Better Touch Tool: Solution for Jumping Cursor...

Better Touch Tool
Solution for Jumping Cursor

A very small portion of BulletTrain Express users (less than 2%) have experienced a challenge where the cursor would randomly jump around the screen and Better Touch Tool just released a new version (0.671) of their software that completely overcomes this challenge.

Downloading and installing this solution should take less than a minute. Just follow these detailed instructions please:

If you are not familiar with Better Touch Tool, it allows you to assign just about any kind of gesture to any function for using with the Apple Magic Trackpad. Version 0.671 has a new feature added to it named "Magic Trackpad: don't allow tap to click on the left and right edge." This feature completely overcomes the Jumping Cursor Challenge and there are 2 ways to install it:

Update Option: If you already have an earlier version of Better Touch Tool installed, you can click on it in the Apple Menu Bar located at the top of every Mac screen, and select "Check for regular updates."

Download Option: If you do not have Better Touch Tool installed you can download version 0.671 by clicking here.

Usage Instructions: Once you have downloaded and installed the 0.671 version of Better Touch Tool, you can access the "Preferences" dialog box by clicking on the Better Touch Tool icon located in the Apple Menu Bar located at the top of every Mac screen.

1. You will see a toggle button located in the upper left hand corner of the "Preferences" screen, click on "Advanced."

2. You will see on the far right side of the Better Touch Tool Preferences window, a button named "Trackpad" which is located between the "Mouse" and "About" buttons. Click on "Trackpad."

3. Click on the "Taps" tab as seen below. (Highlighted in blue)

4. Click the box to turn on "Magic Trackpad: don't allow tap to click on the left and right edge."

5. I recommend starting it at 10%, and and you can always adjust it later if need be.

Better Touch Tool is an amazing piece of shareware, meaning you can use it for as long as you want without having to pay anything, but if you enjoy its features, you can make a donation by going to the Preferences dialog box and clicking on the Donate button.

In the future, I will be doing a video that showcases many of the amazing features of Better Touch Tool.

If you have any questions, concerns or comments please contact me: or call us at (415) 440-1400.

I would also like to thank Andreas at Better Touch Tool for making such an amazing piece of software, and for adding this valuable feature that allows people to better enjoy their BulletTrain Express Keyboard Platform.

BulletTrain MagicStand Works With Ipad 2!!!!!

BulletTrain MagicStand Works With Ipad 2!!!!!

Great news!!!! The BulletTrain MagicStand works perfectly with the iPad 2!!!! This makes it one of the very few iPad accessories that was not completely obsoleted by the iPad 2, which I believe speaks volumes about the design integrity at BulletTrain. Even Apple's own iPad case was completely, obsoleted by the iPad 2.

Ironically, the BulletTrain MagicStand appears to fit the iPad 2 even better than on the original iPad since the all-new iPad 2 has a flat-back and is slightly smaller.

BulletTrain MagicStand for iPad 2 Compatibility Update...

Timeless Design At Its Best

BulletTrain MagicStand for iPad 2
Compatibility Update

Top 1o Reasons the MagicStand for Ipad 2 Remains the Best Stand

A few thoughts on Apple's iPad 2. It looks great and one of the obvious questions is will it work with the BulletTrain MagicStand? Since we have not had a chance to experiment with an iPad 2, I can only say from studying the design of the iPad 2 it appears as if it will work flawlessly with the iPad 2.

As the designer of the BulletTrain MagicStand for iPad, I can say if it does work perfectly with the iPad 2, I will only have to make the slightest modification to one small part and if that is the case, I have the modification ready to go. The day the iPad 2 is available for purchase, we will buy one and test it and update this story to confirm that it is 100% compatible with the iPad 2.

I have a few observations to share with you about the iPad 2 in relation to the BulletTrain MagicStand:

1. Timeless Design: The BulletTrain MagicStand is absolutely TIMELESS!!! If you examine Apple's first generation case for the iPad and you compare it to the all-new Apple iPad case/stand, they are absolute night and day. In other words, there is ZERO compatibility going each way, in that the first generation Apple iPad case/stand will not work with the second generation iPad case/stand.

2. Limited Positions: I would argue the Apple case/stand is extremely limited in that it can only be positioned in two different positions. One for steep typing, and one for a fixed TV viewing angle. The severe limitation with the TV viewing angle is if you are getting glare, you can't adjust it at all. With the MagicStand you can adjust it to any angle.

3. Stability: Also, the Apple stand looks like it would not only fall over easily (like with the 1st generation Apple iPad case), but if you tried to use it in bed, it would not be stable and would likely not even be able to stand-up, and if you move in the bed, it would likely fall over.

With the BulletTrain MagicStand for iPad, it is to timeless in its design and function that it will work identically, except you will gain extra features:

4. Camera and Video Camera Tripod: MagicStand with iPad 2 gives you a perfect Tripod for taking photos and shooting video. Since the iPad incorporates an HD camera on its backside, the MagicStand can act as the perfect tripod for taking photos and shooting video at any angle. Since the BulletTrain MagicStand can sit at ANY angle between a straight right angle at 90 degree, and can sit at any angle all the way down to 22 degrees, it is perfect for taking still photos and video.

5. Facetime Stand: Since the iPad 2 has 2 video cameras built in (one of the front and one on the back) you can use the BulletTrain MagicStand for iPad to hold the iPad in the perfect position for video conferencing.

6. Presentation Tool: Since the new iPad 2 has video mirroring, the MagicStand will allow the ipad to become the ultimate presentation tool In other words, you will be able to give a presentation on a remote flat screen plasma or LCD TV, wirelessly and see and control exactly what appears on the Flat Screen with the iPad with the benefit of WSIWG. This will be great for Keynote and Power Point presentations, and you will be able to do this all without having to hold up the iPad in your hands.

7. Organic Design: It is crystal-clear that the aluminum BulletTrain MagicStand looks way more consistent with the design language of the iPad 2 than the sky blue iPad 2 Smart cover.

8. Thinness: Since the new iPad is 1/3 thinner, and since the MagicStand is just over a 1/4 inch thick, that means when you have the MagicStand attached to the iPad two, it should be less than 1/16 of an inch thicker than the first generation iPad. That is pretty profound if you think about it.

9. Weight Loss: the all new iPad 2 is 15% lighter than the original, which means that with the MagicStand attached, it will get even lighter!!!

10. Obsolescence: Just about every case and stand for the Original iPad just became obsolete for the Ipad 2, but not the BulletTrain MagicStand for iPad and iPad 2.

Another point, is that if you have a BulletTrain Express Keyboard platform paired with an iPad, you will now be able to control your iPad 2 that is hooked up to your flat-screen TV via HDMI output. Let's just hope Apple has the wisdom to allow the Apple Magic Trackpad to be paired with the iPad 2!!!
