Macworld 2009: The Macbook Wheel

So it's going to be a close call as to whether the top story out of Macworld 2009 is Steve Jobs' hormone imbalance or the recently announced Macbook Wheel.  While the latter's relatively poor usability will probably hamper its adoption in the workplace (where people have to actually be able to send emails in under an hour), the total coolness value will more than overwhelm the usability problems for people who are just using it to dick around, which is pretty much everyone with a Mac anyway.

If there's going to be something better to come out of Macworld, I can't think of what it would be.
