I have no idea if this gadget will ultimately be successful or not. At $3500, I have serious doubts...

However, I actually watched the Apple presentation on it and the TechCrunch author is mistaken. While Apply did present a case for it in business (in a contrived use case as far as I'm concerned) the MUCH larger portion of the presentation was for home entertainment. Movies, gaming, etc...

You also seem to be coming at this from a "we'll put this baby on only for those few situations where it might be cool" point of view. For business, Apple presented it as "you'll use this baby nearly all the time and we can make all your tasks better". For example, open windows are not limited by the number of your physical displays or display sizes. Most devs I know would love more displays... no?
