    The story is that multitouch gestures conflicts with some popular applications that could not be rewritten in time for the release.

    Someone told me that Garage Band is one of those applications.

    I have activated gestures and they seem to do just fine.

    I would love to give this a whirl, and I have a Mac, but alas the iOS SDK is only for Mac OS X 10.6.x (Snow Leopard). I am still running Leopard (10.5.x). I find that a little sucky!...

    In addition, if you read the comments to the article in the link of the original post, you will find you can also open a free developer account then download the Xcode 3.2.6 + iOS 4.3 SDK disk image (4.3GB) for free, which will allow you to do the same thing (and save that precious $5, if you wish). Again, 3.2.6 + SDK is only for OS X 10.6 and above - damn it!

    I need to find a buddy with Snow Leopard installed! (or for Apple to provide a 4.3.1 update that enables multi-tasking gestures for all)... :D

    How big is your HD? To keep your mac stable you should try to keep 10% free.

    Well, it's a black Mac book, pro (I think). The "about" says 2gb memory (I think thats ram?).
    When I root around in files it says 11gb avail. I don't know how much total the hd has (sorry, I don't know much about it, it's actually an assigned laptop from work. I use it for iTunes syncing only. The rest is job related software.)
    Maybe I better not mess with it, until I know what I'm doing.

    A black MacBook Pro? Is it made of plastic?

    If so it isn't an Intel mac, which means it can't run the latest OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, which means in turn that you can't run X Code 4 on it.

    To be certain, (my knowledge of all MacBook models is less than perfect) go to the Apple menu and check out About This Mac to make sure you are running version OS X version 10.6.x and an Intel processor.
