@richtuason I dunno why you’re that upset though. It’s not like it was a super-terrible or offensive idea. lol.

via Echofon in reply to reginebdavid

@rginedav If it’s not commentary, it’s meta-commentary. lol.

I think Lion’s Mission Control is kinda sloppily done. :/

The “daisy-chainable” means you can have two 27” displays attached in series to a MacBook Pro.

Besides the new Mac mini and MacBook Air, the new Thunderbolt display is out, which has more I/O and is daisy-chainable (!!!)
