  1. if MacOS is replaced by ios Ill go drop my mac of a cliff. ios is awesome on a phone but socks on desktops I can’t get anything done without folders and applescript and multiple windows.

    You are assuming that the iOS that will replace Mac OS will be the same version powering iPhones today. It won’t. By the time this switch happens, iOS will have gained all the necessary features of a full desktop OS (including file system access, multiple applications running on the same screen, some sort of simple scripting language equivalent to AppleScript, full API for external hardware, etc).

  5. Yeah, that magic trackpad turned out to be quite the paperweight, compared to a mouse. The battery tilt results in terrible wrist position – I wish the battery container was on the top, not the bottom, so the thing could lie flat.

    Anyone have a chance to compare it to one of the Wacom touch tablets? Which do you like better? I don’t mean to hijack the thread too badly, but it’s a pretty dead headline. I don’t want a touch screen display. I don’t see the point.
