10.7: Reverse Reversed Scrolling direction
Authored by: macavenger on Jul 21, '11 07:48:11AM

Actually, Apple had very good reason for this change (no, it isn't backwards): It mimics the natural scrolling behavior found on the iPhone and iPad. That is, when you drag downwards, the PAGE moves downwards, showing more of the upper portion, and visa-versa. It makes total sense when using the iPhone/iPad, why would it suddenly be "backwards" when using a desktop? Granted, it is different than we are used to, but that doesn't make it backwards. That said, I also disabled it given that I have a scroll wheel mouse, not a touchpad. When/if I get a touchpad, I'll re-enable the behavior.
