Indeed, but OS X will never be on a tablet or touchscreen officially. OS XI will; of that I'm 100% certain.
Many customers have been asking for an iPad with a file system versus the closed and controlled iOS. I just keep hearing this over and over.
Nope. You hear it from Androiders that never actually use it and people who wouldn't buy an iPad anyway. Meanwhile, tens of millions of iPads keep being sold and everyone else (the ones with apparent filesystem access) languish.
The mobile mouse-free market wasn't even a reality in 2004. First iOS device was in 2007.
Sure it was. It wasn't a reality because Apple hadn't made it one yet.
I still think a touch screen laptop with a removable keyboard and the Apple file system would appeal to content creators and creatives.
You don't need trees. You don't need drag and drop. You don't need any of that.
How do I know? Because I created a better means by which to access one's files. Me. I'm just a guy who has taken HCI classes. I don't work for Apple (yet), so you can imagine how much better their solution will be than mine, created alone (It's just a paper prototype presently; I've not yet made a Photoshop interpretation thereof).Take a step back and realize that you're simultaneously wanting to spearhead the death of the mouse, a 29-year-old mechanism by which to access your files and demanding the inclusion of folder trees, a 29-year-old mechanism by which to access your files introduced on the SAME DATE as the mouse.
Don't you find something odd about that?
The mouse is nearly 30 years old and touch screen is the future
I'm in full agreement. Can't come soon enough.
