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.

Since the days I've been using the Psion 5 I realized - touching screens is useful and works for me.

I think the 'gorilla arm' fairy-tale is just used to not release a mixture between a MacBook and an iPad otherwise it would screw with the product portfolio.
But maybe Apple will do just that - it's not the first time.
