    Is it just me or can no one bear to imagine a new app designed for the iPad that works like a futuristic touch screen universal remote. Would this be possible, with there being bluetooth and everything.

    Now that we know that there is bluetooth what awesome things are we going to be able to do with it when it's paired with our mac computers? ideas anyone

    I really want to see it act as a screen for macs, kinda turning it into a touchscreen monitor. Not actually a monitor though, just a copy of it.

    Right. Not actually running os x, but acting like a vnc server.

    idk for the time being VNC server would be okay, but i would like to see apple actually create an interface specifically for doing things while its paired with a mac
