Ultrabooks are marvelous, but their Apple-style ‘clickpads’ are an abomination to human-computer interaction. The Lenovo Yoga 11s is nearly perfect: compact size, great battery life, and this whole 360 degree hinge thing is sheer brilliance. Unfortunately, it’s got one glaring flaw: no mouse buttons. You have to press down on the touchpad to make it click. Jad will step you through his button-hack that makes the Yoga more stylish and usable. • Jad Meouchy: Founder of Osurv- mind reading technology that predicts customer behavior. Invested in by the Co-Founder of Activision. • He has been coding/hacking since age 7, won numerous hackathons, & is a full-stack developer with a background in Psychology and Software Engineering.
