trackpad surface touch recognition is a bit different to iphone like touch recognition (there's a screen there in the way ).hoffman2k wrote:The Apple Trackpad can track up to 11 fingers at a very smooth resolution. Thanks to Fingerworks which Apple bought.

the lemur can handle more than two fingers with ease. something i don't expect from the iCraplet (but it sure would be nice).
if it doesn't have that, it has a big - to the lemur.
i just got a lemur and it's so worth the money, even if cheaper alternatives may exist. it's just much fun, and simple plugin-and-use like.
i somehow now have the joke in my head about the iphone which stops playing music when you get a call (big ads in tv about that). i hope your gig doesn't stop when you get a call
no, but seriously, i'm all for some other lemur-like solutions. but lemur delivers
I also believe that this unit will have a remote desktop application, which definitely needs to track 4 fingers for all the expose stuff.
but yeah, we'll see. if it's a blown-up iphone, it will have two fingers. if it's a touchpad with screen in, it will have more.
then again, we still wait for an ACTUAL STATEMENT FROM APPLE THAT THEY BUILD ONE
hype, unbelievable hype
