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.

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

But with laptops (and this is about laptops), the elbow can rest on the desk while touching the screen.

This seems obvious to me, how about you ?
