hey ppl?
i was just at http://www.MacOSRumors.com and i happened to read that small tidbit about Inkwell mabye having some possible connection with the trackpads on key boards...this really got me thinking and i realized that there isnt any real difference (that i can see) because all a pen would do would be more precise than our regular fingers..id like to hear some feedback about what u think...
thanks

I think they'd have to use new trackpads... the trackpads, if I recall correctly, only work with your finger.... a pen or pencil would not work.

Anyone have a ibook/tibook on them to try?
