    Post Apple Introduces Laptop With No Keyboard

    Video.

    Well, it's well-designed and it's shiny, so I predict they will be selling quite a lot of "MacBook Wheels." Your thoughts?

    What ? Using a "wheel" to select characters to type them and this is innovation ?

    Apple employees have just won free copies of "Valley of the Wolves" DVDs from me. Jeez, there are people feeling proud of and earning money with this.

    Capitalism sux. (I need to blame something)

    The Onion is one of the funniest satirical sites on the net.

    I'll bet that movie would look great on a MacBook Wheel. I always thought "Valley of the Wolves" was both Billy Zane's and Gary Busey's best work.

    Being able to be only that "best", how could they keep their citizenships ? Land of liberty indeed.

    I didn't know what The Onion was all about and the shoot was quite professional.

    I feel as offended as how one can feel utterly offended. (I've just been amazed at myself)

    I resemble that infatuation.

    It is a great video and perfectly captures the innovation style of Apple. Sometimes it's brilliant and redefines a whole way of doing things - sometimes it's just mystifyingly, y'know, weird.

    I got excited and thought that projection keyboards had arrived. This isn't a bad idea for affordable multi-platform media.
