Hardware, Embedded Systems "I was prepared to write that the Windows 8 interface was forcing unnecessary touchscreen controls on people who wouldn't appreciate them, particularly if they were simply grafted onto a traditional laptop. But the more I've used Windows 8, despite its faults, the more I've become convinced that touchscreens are the future - even vertical ones." I can see his point. I, too, have often felt the desire to touch regular and laptop displays, especially when doing things like photo and video.

Member since:

When you type or use the mouse your arms should be _resting_ on the desk.

Otherwise you'll have problems when you use it for longer then a couple of minutes.

This seems obvious to me, how about you ?

And calling it an extra input device ? I'm not so sure how useful that is, as having to switch between mouse and keyboard is already something people try to avoid.
