This was IMed to me by one of our shyer contributors to this site.  Fatty Spins – I fell in Love at the Apple Store. The video was filmed on one of the 5th avenue demo laptops.  While he doesn’t have the dance moves of MJ he is able to incorporate an amazing number of Apple products in his song.  The funniest thing to me is watching the people behind him.  Only a few people even look  at him.  Enjoy.

We know OS X has been having more and more touch commands integrated in to the core OS. This, in fact, is one of the chief evidences that makes people think the new “iTablet”, should it actually come to fruition, will be a Snow Leopard 10” Macbook touch rather than a beefed up 10” iPhone. How useful is touch technology really though? Sure on my quick one off tasks it make sence but I don’t use any application on my phone for much of an extended time.

Would it start replacing major peripherals on those machines?
