Is it just me, or using the mouse or a trackpad to move the insertion point sucks significantly more than using the arrow keys with a combination of Alt+Option+Shift?

This drivel is what Gruber spends his time on?

Meanwhile, there was a ton of news yesterday about Andy Rubin's "Essential" phone and Gruber hasn't written a word about it. He's usually instantly dismissive about about any new iPhone competitor.

What if the iPad had a mouse? Using the built-in bluetooth to talk to an Apple mouse that Apple already makes? So you can move the insertion point with the mouse? And scroll with the mouse?

How novel is that?

What if the MacPad had a touchscreen? And a mouse?

The thing to remember is that this is important and worth a thousand word write-up, but Mark Gurman breaking actual news about a Siri speaker going into production is a "stale morsel."

No, no it's not just you (I'm a shortcut junkie myself). Adding a trackpad to a keyboard for an iPad is a horrendously stupid idea. Talk about a solution in search of a problem.

Yes, let's make that ridiculous keyboard cover bigger, and heavier.

Now I need to write a post slagging people with actual information.
