Uhmmmm, no thanks, I'll stick with a mouse and keyboard. Nothing against touchscreens, I just have no need or use for them.
I dunno, Tom, what are we gonna do with you? You don't like Win 8, you don't like 'touch' [which I find strange for a man ] and you don't like Google Glasses. Yup, we need to get you interested something technologcally modern or you're gonna get labeled and old dinosaur and get put out to pasture.
I mean, it might be fun chasing lady dinosaurs through grassy meadows, but if you're not into 'touch', what 'd be the point?
Nah, seriously, be happy with what you've got, I say. Just cos some folks like other stuff, don't mean to say you gotta.
I don't really like my touch screen
Ah, but you're not viewing... uh, touching the right content to make it more inviting.
If you like, and the missus don't mind [ yours that is, not mine], I'll send you some links to some very touchable content.
You may end up needing glasses after a while, but at your age 'twas probably on the cards anyhow.
It is a novel approach though. People will go for it, new fangled and all.
While being a novel approach, it may just be the thing to get sales of Win 8 moving along. Being that people realise Win 8 is optimised for touchscreen Pc's, and the price of such machines is above their means/budgets, this could be the game breaker that boosts sales along. I'd like to do my part, well above what I've already done [purchasing 3 copies of Win 8], but I haven't whispered sweet nothings in Shaunna's ear as yet. I'd have to get her in that 'let me buy something' mood, and that's not something one tackles without great preparation and a quick exit planned if things go awry.
Nice article, Mark! Interesting subject and engaging writing style
Yeah, I wanted to make it a little more interesting than just a tech article, thus the humour, but I seem to have missed something, given the slow/poor response. I'm sort of wondering if I should have added On Your PC to the title... just to take away the sexual connotation 'touch' could have without some kind of clarification.
As for the idea of using this device to control various actions in PSP or Photoshop, yeah, not bad... not bad at all.
But then you could always uprade to Win 8, where it would be possible to use hand motions, etc.. Hehe.
