Being the "ascetically pleasing" company that Apple is, I just can't see them leaving the last space for an icon on the 2nd row of application buttons empty. Theres gotta be something in the works that will go in that spot...

Thoughts?
Mac:
15" Powerbook G4 1.33 GHz, 512 RAM
Next Purchase:
If all goes well, a Quad Core Xeon Mac Pro by next year...if not...iMac...
Aluminum Macbook, whenever those come out
iPod:
16 GB iPod touch, 30 GB iPod 5G, 8 GB iPod nano 2G
Next Purchase:
32 GB iPhone, whenever that comes out...

It looks wierd from a balancing/symmetry point of view, but it kind of makes visual sense in that it's a an arrow pointing down to the iPod icon. You're literally downloading stuff into your iPod app.

I guess I can legitimize putting Installer.app on the iPhone, just to balance out the icons. It'll make visual sense too, since you're downloading apps directly onto the phone.

What about when there are more icons than spaces? Will the Home page scroll?

I'd like to be able to move them around, too.

I'm thinking they have a couple other new apps in mind in the near future and this is just a short term solution.
