glass... its something new and innovative (thats enough for a stagnant apple to hate it right there) though it does kinda make the user look retarded and i see at best limited uptake in its present form, it will spur further innovation as other companies vie for market share in both final products and components (and yes that will include graphics hardware).
apple and intel bitching about it? well that sounds like...
apple trying to downplay a new technology until they can catch up with a competing device - then sue because they were so obviously into it before anyone else
intel then jumping on the bandwagon and bouncing around Cooks feet like a little lost puppy thats starved for love in the vain hopes that apple will then use their tech (atom processors)
sour grapes all around
and even though glass looks like crap atm - lets not forget that what we have seen so far are DEVELOPMENT versions, not final "lets get this shit on store shelves" versions but test units. a lot can (and i bet will) change before final release.
oh and intel complaining about graphics performance? lol the irony
