1998, the iMac debuts without a floppy disk drive. Apple says, floppy is dead. Too small, too slow, no longer fits the new paradigm. 2009, the refresh of the iMac and mac pro to ship without a mouse. Apple says, the mouse is dead. Too limiting in functionality, no longer fits the new paradigm. Apple has no doubt put a lot of research time and dollars into multi-touch technology. So far, every implementation has resulted in a very satisfying user experience (iPhone, iPod Touch, MacBook & MBP touchpads). The next step? Steve made it very clear not to expect a touchscreen MacBook or iMac in the near future. However, could the time be right to announce the death of the mouse by introducing a desktop trackpad not unlike the new glass trackpad just introduced? Has the multi-touch technology advanced far enough for you to consider replacing your mouse with a large, glass, buttonless trackpad?
