Don’t like wireless input devices? Let Apple know!

This is a follow-up to my previous post “Apple, please give us a wired trackpad!” where I explain why wires are currently better than batteries, how Apple has largely solved the wire problem, and how trackpads will probably replace mice long-term.

Two new ideas:
  • Give Apple feedback if you agree with me. Every now and then they seem to react to it, so here is hoping. Also let them know that it’s stupid that you can only buy a trackpad in addition to a mouse (and not instead of it) with a new Mac.
  • MacInTouch has a great review of the Wacom Bamboo which is a wired mini-tablet that can be used by touch and by stylus and partially competes with the Magic Trackpad.
