If the new iPad will have a stylus, is a mouse far behind?
As a typist, I'd like to see a mouse be used on the iPad (including legacy iPads but at least for the iPad Air). While I appreciate the argument that a mouse would cause some iPad buyers to think twice about buying a Mac, the Mac is and would be superior in many ways than a tablet. What a mouse would do, however, is make those looking at Windows and other tablets think favorably about the Apple tablets. And, just because a mouse is available for use (especially for those into typing/copying/cutting/pasting, etc., and offers the frequently useful "right click" option), it's not as if you have to use the mouse. It's simply an additional feature, not much different than having a touchpad on a non-Apple laptop.
