Honest question if you followed me on Google+ today...why? I got 77 new followers today and I have no idea why.

I agree. The Metro interface looks OK for tablets, but I'm not ready to give-up the desktop metaphor for my actual desktop/laptop computer.

OS X seems to be headed down the same route. Apple is making the iOS-style launcher an option, with the Finder the default, where M$ is doing the opposite. I think both approaches are fine for the 75-ish % of people who only use thier computers for internet & media consumption. But if I want to actually create/accomplish something, I want a desktop & real applications.

I just don't see 7 inch tablets catching on. Wish they would have gone straight for the sweet spot. http://techcrunch.com/2011/09/02/amazon-kindle-tablet/

This thing will sell like crazy, simply because it's on the Amazon homepage every day. It sounds like it could be pretty good for a 7", but I wish they would have gone for the 10" to start out.

Hard to explain really. Don't get caught up in the sci-fi part, that's not really what it's about.

Sergey Brin originally shared:
 
From the earliest days of Google, whenever Larry and I sought inspiration for vision and leadership, we needed to look no farther than Cupertino. Steve, your passion for excellence is felt by anyone who has ever touched an Apple product (including the macbook I am writing this on right now). And I have witnessed it in person the few times we have met.

On behalf of all of us at Google and more broadly in technology, you will be missed very much. My condolences to family, friends, and colleagues at Apple.
