The Null Device

OSX screen zoom

I've just discovered a slightly nifty feature in MacOS X, when running on a relatively recent *Book.

If you hold down Ctrl and drag up on the trackpad with two fingers (as you would to scroll upward), the screen zooms in around the cursor. Releasing Ctrl keeps it magnified, though following the cursor. Holding down Ctrl and scrolling down zooms back out.

I'm told the feature is new to the 10.4.8 update that recently came out.
