"Apple has released a software update to address an issue where trackpad clicks would randomly go unrecognized on its latest notebook offerings: the MacBook (Late 2008) and MacBook Pro (Late 2008). "This firmware update addresses an issue where trackpad clicks may not be recognized on MacBook (13-inch, Aluminum, Late 2008) and MacBook Pro (15-inch, Late 2008) computers," the company said."
As I stated in my original review of the MacBook Pro, the trackpad was giving me grief. As cool as it was when it worked, it was finicky in a way that was starting to become counterproductive. A few weeks after its release, a customer wrote to Steve Jobs and got a response that they were aware of the issue and working toward a fix for it. Today was the day and it did exactly that. My trackpad works perfectly now and my only real "issue" with my MBP is now gone. Thankfully, I no longer want to punt it out my kitchen window in frustration. Anyone else grab it yet?
