comment MBP / OS X: Can't control mouse pointer: it jumps around erratically, random things keep getting clicked or selected
This is one of the issues with Macs -- working on them is much harder (because everything is super-specific & packed tightly), & if you go to Apple, they'll charge 3 times of mom & pop stores (e.g., I enquired about prices for 8 GB (1333 MHz DDR3) of RAM for my MBP. Computer store selling RAM: Rs. 4000. Apple store: Rs. 12000)

No, I haven't tried putting it on top of a fan like that :-), but I did get it opened up and the internal fan and vents cleaned (hadn't done that since I bought it - there was a lot of gunk). That should have dramatically improved cooling, but the effect seems to be minimal (& maybe I'm just imagining it). My current workaround it to buy & connect a cheap wired mouse and disable trackpad when external mouse is connected. Works like a charm, but I'd still prefer to get the trackpad working properly.

My experience since yesterday does seem to suggest that this may be heat-related (problem seems to reduce at night), but isn't confirmed yet. Also, regarding your comment about heat produced by processor core: you may be on to something here --- the situation definitely gets worse as I use Eclipse (which obviously uses hp).

@Spiff Unfortunately this happens with my MBP on my desk and seems to have no relation to the distance between my cell phone and my laptop.

comment How do I stop Youtube autoplay in Google Chrome?
Yes, I think so too. Is there a way to stop auto-play (basically auto-load) of HTML5 videos on YouTube?
