    Do you ever sit at your desktop/laptop and try to switch windows by swiping... Close windows by flicking, performing back gestures etc? I do it all the time...kind of amusing, in a weird way... I've used windows-style computers since my old Atari ST, and going on 10 months with webOS, I'm already being re-programmed. Are you?

    You mean like taking your hand off the mouse and swiping it on the monitor?

    ...boy, once you get south of Red Deer things sure do get wonky... :-)

    I use the Opera web browser on my desktop and it has the option to use gestures such as right click + move left for going back a page, right click + move right to go forward and more. It reminds me of the Pre a bit. I like it. And just like phones, I dont like using a desktop web browser without it. lol

    No, not at my desktop, but when I set up Exchange sync for iPhone users at work, I'm dumbfounded by how clunky it is.

    Au revoir,

    Never on the computer, but I do it all the time if I have to use my wife's iPod Touch. I am quite used to the swipe motion on a smartphone.

    you know the control-tab carosel of open apps? I want to flick through that thing with my mouse.

    and I think I'm slower navigating any phone or mp3 player if it doesn't have a webos gesture area now that I'm used to it.

    I meant exactly that, sorta... I might be moving my mouse with one hand and trying to flick away stuff with the other, I do have a fairly large monitor and i'm not the tidiest computer user.... 3/4 of my task bar full and 6-7 tabs open per window. I can't be the only one. And I agree with you... I've lived here for 10 years, there is definitely something in the air/water/food/something out here... But I'm still an islander at heart

    While I haven't been tempted to swipe the TV or monitor I certainly start doing it to any hand held device I come across, webOS or otherwise.....perhaps you have had one to many tumblers of screech sledge.

    At least you didn't get stuck in Fort Mac like everyone else.
