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.

Touchscreens have no purpose after a certain size. [...] after, say 10 inch displays, any movement is very difficult, time consuming and tiring.

That's like saying big drawings are awkward ...drafting tables are often quite large. Big touchscreen could be awesome for manipulating media, or as a proper evolution of the drafting table.
