Final Cut Pro and MacBook Pro trackpad

I am going through hours of underwater audio clips and placing markers in each track that correspond with the beginning and end of interesting audio snippets. After each clip has been marked up in its entirety, I select all of the markers and generate subclips en masse. In the beginning, I had a mouse connected to my notebook, but I've discovered that the trackpad is a better tool because it has horizontal scrolling built into it. Even when a clip is being played, I can scroll the clip view left and right by simply placing a second finger on the trackpad. It's one of the few instances where the trackpad is better than an external mouse. Video demo follows...
