  • "Apple's 'Next Big Thing' Will Be an Innovation, Not an Invention" ["So let's hope CEO Tim Cook, along with Apple's engineers and designers, are busy looking around at other companies' promising products that don't quite meet up to Apple's high standards. Apple doesn't have to create new categories to change the world — it just has to build products that people love and then convince us that we can't live without them."]  Forbes 10:09 AM

The button choices are 'Cancel' and 'OK.' So far, I have hit Cancel each time it has appeared. First, I rarely use Finder; I am a Path Finder fan. Second, I would like more information about the 'changes' Finder wants to make before allowing them. Has anyone else seen this? Any advice will be appreciated." MacInTouch 10:04 AM
