Please Shrink the Trackpad

Source: Hacker News

Article note: I'm always mystified by the love for the modern large Apple Trackpads. I even like touchpads. Part of what I like is that I don't want to have to move my wrist to use them, and looking at the wear patterns on most people's macbooks, neither do they, the rest of the area is just for gimmicks and palm detection failure. I like physical feedback - not just to confirm that the software has decided I meant to click, but to reference my finger against - from real buttons. The nicest touchpad I've used in years is the one on my Precision 7450. Three real hardware buttons with good tactile switches under them. Just a little bigger than I can traverse with fingers alone. Centered on the spacebar.
