This thread started with a discussion of some user-interface features 
on Mac OS X, which led to a kind of comparison to things on an iPad.
The OP clearly uses both, as I suspect do many others on this list.

That made it relevant and interesting to some of us.

If something similar arose with an Android tablet, I see no reason
to reject the posting. However it is not clear that much useful
discussion would occur — unless there were others that have this
combination — and a different forum might be more appropriate.
But then the poster needs to know what that forum is, and maybe 
someone here could provide the pointer; in which case this list
has once again shown its versatility, usefulness and general

I don't see any need for a new list yet.
But anyone who really wants it is free to do so.

Time to move on, IMHO.
