It's all about cloud computing. Why worry about losing or breaking a flash drive when you can have everything in the cloud and save to apps like dropbox?
I think apple is about changing the direction of the industry NOT going with the direction. Wires are messy and annoying, I'd rather see more over wireless technology any way. Storage over the cloud and local peripherals are bluetooth.
The only thing that wires are for are major file transfers and power, becasue I think wireless power is called lightning.
That's my take on it. Apple is changing the industry and I think it's positive. Do you still need a laptop or other computer? Yes.
So there we are.
iVan, I TOTALLY understand. And those things ARE going to happen. As time goes on I think were, individuals, going to have to get better with file management, isolating sensitive things from non sensitive, and file management.
But, cloud just IS where the industry is going!
