I'm with you on that Bill! Not having any feedback, or click sensation,
would IMO really make things difficult. Perhaps there's something else
to the experience once you've tried it.
As an Industrial Designer in a former life, I've spent a bit of time
with HF testing labs and can say w/out a doubt, Apple's interface
hardware products rarely scored above average. They always scored high
in the 'cool factor.' One year I was asked by Business Week to be a
judge for their annual design issue, and I believe we awarded Apple 2 or
3 prizes. But it was mostly for style, not substance.
