11-point multitouch tracking might sound nifty in a theoretical spec throwaway, but what does it mean to an end-user? Likely still not much, but thanks to FingerMgmt we can at least see it in action now -- on a MacBook glass trackpad at least.

Apple may have debuted their modern multitouch in the iPhone, but they've quickly spread the technology out to their MacBook glass trackpads and now Magic Mouse for desktops. Ultimately that's good for all of Apple's products, as innovation in each one can benefit the others on their next revision as well. Now, 11 points might be overkill for any practical need on a display this small, but when we start dreaming of unicorns and larger form-factor iTablets... Oh the games they could make (never mind the obvious jokes about just what constitutes that 11th finger...)
