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.

touching screens

I usually consider that to be pretty rude. I would expect the amount of people being beat to a pulp due to touching others' screens will increase. Not only are you touching the screen and blocking their view, you are jacking with their user interface. Not to mention the fingerprint haters out there.
