Re: blackberry trackball/trackpad.
They need to go back to the thumb wheel in my opinion. I pretty much hate the trackball. It constantly moves up/down an item when I press it to click through to something, and lately it gets what I’m guessing is debris stuck under it periodically making it not want to go in a particular direction.
That’s weird, I don’t have any of those problems with the trackball. Perhaps it is dirty as you suspect.
