[Tim Wilson] "...oh yeah, and then completely discard anything resembling a standard for a new interface (the Magic Mushroom...I mean, Magic Trackpad) that's not all that helpful for professional media production, and only arguably a step forward because of the basic functionality it leaves out -- unless you're willing to climb a meaningful learning curve (Apple actually includes HELP videos to teach you how to use it, all in the name of progress."

You know, I was surprised by how well some of the trackpad gestures worked when working on my laptop (I'm new to the laptop world). For a desktop, I could definitely see a new paradigm to the mouse where you use a two-handed trackpad perhaps with a display (like an ipad but larger). Perhaps it even replaces the keyboard as well (although I prefer typing on actual keys).

An industry standard is only an industry standard until it's not. Remember when phones used to have buttons on them?
