Maybe they haven’t completely forgotten about the Mac. It seems like iOS devices have been such a disctraction to Apple the last couple years, I’d really love to see some great stuff for Macs again.

I wouldn’t trade it for anything, but if they take away my powerful OS in favor of something more watered down I’d be pissed.
Lots of buzz around the net on Intel’s new Light Peak lately. I have to say I’m rather excited, a super fast transfer speed like that could really improve computing experiences.
