Hey everyone! Feel free to add.
32
Anything I missed?
33
Sidenote: Would appreciate a more colorblind-friendly green and red (I’m red-green colorblind, and the two are difficult to tell apart)
34
How about the Magic Mouse? Apple's multitouch mouse supports some but not all gestures.
35
If you are going to include Crown Dial, shouldn't you include physical affordances from other devices? iOS Home button, volume control for camera shutter, etc.
