October 20 Apple Event Prediction – iMac Touch
Posted on October 13, 2010 by eli courey
One of my predictions for Apple’s “Back to the Mac” event next week is multi-touch features in OS X 10.7. With the huge popularity of the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, I believe that Apple will be bringing the multi-touch capabilities of those devices to the Mac. Apple has already applied for an iMac Touch patent, so we know they have at least been thinking about it. I know I’m not the only one who has touched their iMac or MacBook screen trying to scroll down a page or zoom in on a picture, and then after realizing it’s not my iPhone or iPad, looking around feeling really dumb and making sure no one noticed. My dream is that someday I’ll be able to touch my Mac screen and actually get results. And instead of looking around at others laughing at me, I will see their looks of amazement and jealousy.
