I'm known for stirring the Apple pot but seriously why would you want an ipad 3?  What's it going to do that the 2 doesn't, really?

What does your desktop beast do that a $300 compaq doesn't, really? :poke: :stir:

I don't see what the point of a retina display on an iPad. The resolution would be humongous. I would think that would be much more expensive to produce too.

What's stupid about that?  I'm much, much more productive as a programmer, analyst, and project manager when I have better tools to work with.  The iPad is a great, great tool if you are the SCRUM master.

I love the new gestures with Lion but now I'm back at work constantly scrolling the wrong way.

You can change it in the Trackpad System Preferences. Pretty much everyone changes it back to how it should be :lol:

I think he meant he likes the Lion way and is doing it wrong at work on his PC/older Mac.

I do like it inverted. Of course, I've always played video games (FPS, Skyrim, etc) with inverted controls.

Well, it's not just the inverted scrolling. There are other gestures that they added that are pretty sweet.

Apple just gets the experience right. I'm sure you'll roll your eyes, but whatever.

inverted scrolling is stupid, as are inverted controls, you leper :razz:

Friends Don't Let Friends Play Inverted


that said, apple had the best touchpads by far and two finger scrolling is clearly superior to the old scroll zone method

Does anyone know if there's a global shortcut to open a new finder window?  I know command-N if Finder has focus, but what about if something else has focus.

Not by default. But you can use something like QuicKeys or Quicksilver or many other application launchers to do that.

Quicksilver is pretty awesome.  You can do everything from the keyboard with it.

For what you want, you could create an AppleScript to make a new finder window and use quicksilver to set it to whatever key combination you want.  Maybe more hassle than you want, but you might like all the other stuff you can do with quicksilver, being a keyboard man yourself.

Yeah but I'm not gonna do that for every Mac that passes through my hands, and I honestly don't care enough to bother on the one I have at home since all I do on it is surf the web and IM anyway.  Mostly just wondered for work purposes since I'm accustomed to win-E on the Windows side and Lion no longer shows mounted DMGs on the desktop, so I always have to open a Finder Window to unmount things.

Ah, I thought it was for your machine.  It doesn't show dmgs?  I thought be default it showed them.  Check under Finder -> Preferences?
