Why Didn't Apple Make Surface?
Not too long ago I mentioned how much I'd like to see an iPad that had the full capability of a Mac ("A Mac Tab would be Sweet to Swallow").
It got me wondering, if this iPad-style interface, which is similar to Microsoft's new Windows Store app interface is, is such a brilliant idea, why isn't Apple applying it to the Mac?
Is Microsoft the one to pioneer this idea, even though it is really applying an Apple idea to a Microsoft operating system? We are entering bizarro world.
I didn't quite know what to think so I asked an expert, my 16 year old son Nick who is on his second Mac. He thinks a Mac with an iPad interface would be fine as long as it doesn't interfere with his use of the machine -- if it just adds to the experience: "Touch should be an accessory," he says. "That would be cool."
