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.

The keyboard has the letters specially arranged so people don't suffer from RSI, and when they know how to use it, they generally have to move their fingers very little.

I thought, the keyboard has letters arranged to slow down typing on old mechanical typewriters to avoid proficient typists jamming the things when the arms collided if you typed too fast. Nothing to do with RSI (which hadn't been invented in those days ;) )
