    I was typing on my iPad earlier today and i discovered something very odd. I was trying to type the word 'touch' and for some reason I accidentally pressed an 'n' and a spelling suggestion came up saying 'touchmac'. I typed it in pages and the same thing happened. I typed it into google and nothing came up, and there was obviously no dictionary definition either. Does anybody have any idea what this means? Or is it something really obvious that i'm missing?:confused:

    Jobs has been critical of desktop computers with a touchscreen. He basically thinks touching a monitor is an ergonomic nightmare and based on his critical remarks, I highly doubt we'll see one.

    Plus the UI of OSX is geared towards the mouse and keyboard, so a touch interface wouldn't be too useful. This is one reason why windows based tablets have failed because the UI is geared towards mouse/keyboard
