    Multitouch on a MacBook would put Apple into the same miserable spot as Microsoft with Windows: all of a sudden the majority of your applications are no longer suited for the way people would like to interact with the application - well maybe they will decide to implement UMP (Universal Mac Platform) to adress those flaws and allow apps to run on MacOS

    Tags; screen real-estate, User/Device Interaction, Size of Controls, .... you name it

    I love your broadcasts. I listen to most. BUT, they are awfully long. It is best if they are limited to 1 hour long.
