    Really, y'all should check it out...and the part that is of interest to us
    is only two minutes into the video, not six. Go on, honest, it's cool, and
    likely what's to come, too.

  3. Cool! But I must admit that every time I see demonstrations like this,
    I imagine a future in which the underlying system is not only hidden
    from me (which is good) but actually inaccessible (bad). In fact, I'd
    be surprised if Windows isn't completely there in a few years (no
    flames please, it is my opinion and could be wrong). Not that I am all
    that familiar with windows.

    Anyway, these demonstrations are always impressive, but frankly I am
    convinced that for most things the command line really is the best
    interface just like I think that for most things pencil and paper is
    vastly superior and more flexible than a keyboard and mouse based
    editing environment. Or physical controls as opposed to virtual (think
    of a camera with a touchscreen and no external buttons; or, less
    extremely, a calculator). Of course, for a multipurpose device,
    reconfigurability and flexibility is necessary, and the ultimate would
    be something like what this guy demonstrates.

    Despite the above mini-rant, the application he demonstrates (shifting
    images around) is one for which that interface is probably ideal.

    Thank you for humoring me. I liked the way he zoomed in and out on the
    images by using thumb and forefinger, too.

    Yeah, it looks very convenient for shifting through lots of photos
    quickly (eg for selecting which to keep).

    I can just imagine Aperture and/or Photoshop with that interface.....

    You need only reflect that one of the best ways to get yourself a
    reputation as a dangerous citizen these days is to go about repeating
    the very phrases which our founding fathers used in the struggle for
