    Hi, CoM. Your mobile website is terrible! I won’t support a site that has floating ad bars that I can’t dismiss. It’s user-hostile. Shame on you.

    Agreed. A Mac website that is perhaps the WORST SITE to view on an iPad.

    Bring out a Cult of Mac app for the iPad and iPhone.  Please.

    not to mention the constant freeze ups in the comments box

    I’ve been waiting for ATV apps that use the ATV as the shared screen and one or more iPod/iPhone/iPad devices (hereafter called iP*) as the controller(s).

    Imagine something like Scrabble where users get to play with their letters on their iP*, and when it’s their turn, they move them onto the ATV screen for scoring.  Or a racer where the users’ iP has the controls, and the ATV shows the graphics.  Or even a DnD app where the map is on the ATV, the DM uses his iPad to control it, and everyone else uses iP* to control their characters and roll the dice.

    It’s tempting to develop something now so it gets attention as a good example of the capabilities when/if they’re released.  Come on, Cupertino; get on it!
