Anyone else's Magic Trackpad not registering swipes and pinches with the second beta?
Now some of the Magic Trackpad gestures are borked.    Other than that all seems to be well. 
Pretty sure Apple "culture" is a little deeper and more relevant in the broader perspective than uh.... *stifled laugh* ..... Kanye and Jay-z.
When discussing the Apple of today, it's usually best to judge them on outcomes, rather than make predictions about their initial moves. Apple tends to surprise and show they were right (with profit and consumer satisfaction to prove it) when the dust settles.We can safely reserve early predictions for tech has-beens like Microsoft, who have, over the past decade, demonstrated a remarkable ability to doggedly ignore the obvious.
I have no problem with MS peddling their stuff on Apple gear. The more they do that, the less relevant they make their already irrelevant hardware.    Plus, we get more options in the process. Now we have all those other apps, plus Skype. 
This sounds very Ivan Drago.
The translucency. At first blush I assumed it would be Vista-like... revealing content behind overlapping windows. And while parts of the Finder do this, it actually functions to reveal further content *in the same window*, which is very clever, at least in implementation. I'm not sure whether it's really necessary, because the cues that tell you there's more content you're not seeing happen anyway during the act of scrolling. But I find the effect rather pleasant. It's...
I was a little ambivalent about it at first (like I was with iOS 7), but I'm really starting to warm up to the UI. It appears that the interface has been tightened up, with even more cruft removed, that is designed to get out if the way. As with iOS 7, it's about the content, not the UI. It also appears to have been designed with a consumer that is more tech-savvy in mind, and better able to pick up subtler navigation cues than consumers of the pre-iOS era.

Yes, I was just adding to your comment. We're in agreement.
