when i'm on the laptop, my right hand doesn't naturally gravitate toward the middle, and i always struggle with the trackpad movements. it seems about time that apple considered this.

any thoughts?

It's time you deal with the trackpad in the middle. Apple will NOT place the trackpad to either side. Why you ask? Because it would piss off people who are dominant with the other hand.

How stupid can you be? OSX 10.7 IS called Lion. It's the next major upgrade. Did you piss and moan when people were calling Mac OSX Snow Leopard 10.6?

So you have to start scrolling to find out if there's something to scroll? That's exactly the problem with hidden scrollbars.

Or you can stop being lazy and actually READ the document and where the text just abruptly ends, that's a pretty good indication there is more to come.....Jesus, people whine about the most stupid sh*t

I think you guys are way off. Removing scroll bars is something that a graphic designer would very like do to de-clutter a design. When you, as a designer, are piecing together screen shots and concepts for a presentation, you want to minimize clutter. If you don't have alpha or beta software to actually use, you just start piecing together screen shots. Afterall, this is just for a Keynote presentation that won't be on screen for very long

Until

It gets over analyzed by we Apple nuts. Yes there will be scroll bars in Lion. Yes, the absence of scroll bars in these shots is simply caused by a designers comp work for the presentation.

The demo took place on real system software, not Photoshop comps. Those screenshots where from the live video feed.

Actually, I just e-mailed Steve Jobs and he told me that Lion will actually be Mac OS X 10.23878.37287398a^6, just to piss people off.
