Magic Trackpad

Today I got an Apple magic trackpad to go with the OS X Lion. I know it will probably never replace the good old rodent especially precision is your main concern, but it does work seamlessly with the Apple new OS. The trackpad, through the new operating system enables you to bring the full "touchscreen" ability of an iPad into your regular desktop. The gestures work perfectly and it makes navigating between programs a breeze, especially flipping through multiple active desktops. However, the most impressive thing to me is not the trackpad itself, it is how fast Apple actually delivered the product to me. I placed the order through Apple online store yesterday afternoon and it was delivered late in the morning today from Sydney. Now that is what I call fast service!
