Mustafa Al-Qinneh over at Teehan+Lax has also drafted up a concept for iMessage, along with some ideas for how regular text messages and incoming calls could also be incorporated with OS X. Mustafa’s concepts show some cool and interesting ideas for how things from your phone could appear and sync with your desktop. I like the idea of being able to read and respond to text messages from my computer, but I don’t like the idea of iMessage conversations appearing in the Mail app, side by side with emails. That would drive me bonkers; the last thing I want is a hook to keep my email app open for longer than it needs to be.
