    i even hate getting on an older macbook that still has a button near your thumb
    Have you ever used an iPad? There's nothing even remotely "magical" about it.

    Don't get me wrong, I like my iPad. But before it was jailbroken it was nothing more than a giant iPod Touch.

    That's what a remote is for, and Apple already makes one of those.

    Photoshop is a pain to use with any trackpad, and there is already something much better to use. Wacom has been making high-quality digitizers for several years and I highly doubt Apple would even come close to beating them in quality and functionality. Apple will find a way to make it do only what they expect you to do with it, and it'll be lacking something that everyone wants as usual.

    What I consider "mouse intensive" would not be solitaire but rather a first-person shooter. Good luck with that.

    Heh, what a rip. $69 for a giant, clicking trackpad. Unfortunately, it's exactly what I expected it to be.
