Why is it that the trackpad on my MacBook Pro seems like it can handle more multitouch gestures than what the iPad will have to offer? Sure, you may not be able to completely control MacOS X with gestures, but most of the activities on the iPad seem to be single contact-point gestures or movements, which really isn't all that different from operating a computer with a single point and click mouse. On my MacBook Pro I can expose with four fingers up and down, switch applications (which in some ways performs the same task as expose), and with three fingers i can scroll back and forth between files, finder pages, safari pages etc, and with two i have the ability to scroll in all directions. Additionally I can rotate with two fingers and have the pinch motion. On the iPad it seems the only real feature that requires multiple touches is the pinch motion, which isn't so impressive after so many years of the iPhone and other platforms that have adopted it since. So, in some ways it seems as though the MacBooks have taken greater advantage of multitouch technology than the iPad or iPhone have. Why isn't there a difference on the iPad between how I touch it with one finger or four? It seems like Apple has the capability of incorporating so much more interactivity with the iPad than what they did. Why didn't they make these multitouch gestures as "out of control" as everyone believed they would? Does anyone think there is a particular reason? I feel like people were ready to be blown away by a revolutionary UI but were let down by something that was marginally more attractive than the iPhone only because the screen is a little bigger. Someone please help me understand this.
