what's a good way to clean it without fugging it up?
my finger is getting tired
Spermicide? Rubbing alcohol, maybe?
Not sticky like sticky, but sticky like not smooth and slick anymore. It's like rubbing your finger across a sheet of cardboard whereas it used to be all slick and lubricated-like
i've heard these work well for cleaning dirt and smudges...not sure about making it smooth again
I sprayed a tiny dab of fantastic on it and now it looks clean, but I noticed the center of the pad is definitely worn somehow. There's a shiny spot there whereas the rest is dull-colored. That's exactly where it's sticky. Maybe I need to replace this thing.
This is what use. Yeah, it's just a sticker, but I rather have that get dirty, than have the trackpad get worn down. I still have a dell whose trackpad's paint is worn down to the bare plastic.
All track pads get the worn down shiny spots after a decent amount of use. My TiBook track pad is all shiny except for around the edges after years of use. It shouldn't be a big deal as it will still function just fine. I think it feels much better when it gets smooth and shiny then when it's got a texture like they do when new (hope to have my MBP worn down fairly quickly as it makes for better mouse control).
Yeah, that's what confused me. This is a black Macbook and is less than a year old. I had a TiBook that I used the shit out of every single day for 5 years and the trackpad never got like this. It was all shiny looking as well. But this one...the shiny part is like dragging your finger across drywall.
