Sorry, but it looks antithetical to the Apple paradigm. Too many wires/cables/pwr bricks not to mention keeping everything charged and updated. Granted, iSync and DropBox help but who wants a room/desk that looks like crap!
I have one iPhone 4G, one iPad, and one MBA, no desktop, no external HD, (ala Time Capsule).
I use DropBox and MobileMe (cloud), no cable modem or router, use ATT 3g and wifi when I'm out and about.
A wireless Brother all-in-one printer/Fax/scanner/copier the odd time I want to print something on a dead tree...usually about once a week. And that's it. Oh, an AppleTV to listen to music while viewing photos on my flat screen TV.
I consider myself an Apple fanboi, but I've given my old iPods to either my daughter or niece. I sell my old software/hardware on craigslist. And sell my iPhones for the price I paid ATT for them and it's a 'wash' to get the latest and greatest iPhone.
Am I missing something? The last thing I want to do with my free time is either read a manual or figure out an electronic device with an arcane interface, i.e., digital picture frames, stand-a-lone GPS units, cameras, cable boxes, etc., etc.
Life is too short and thanks to Apple and a little forethought on my part, I have more free time away from the techno gadgetry that seems to infect the Blackberry carrying, Windows using, 'Androids' amongst us that are on the 'Matrix!'
