Is it time to retire the mouse?
jlister 2 years ago
The iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch are very popular touch-screen interfaces. Microsoft hasn't had much success with Windows Phone 7 but made a major investment deal with Nokia in an attempt to popularize it and its successor, Windows Phone 8. Related to this, Microsoft is adding touch elements to Windows 8 and Apple added code to Lion to help people using touch-screens and trackpads. Are you ready to give up your mouse? Is touch that important? Have you ever used a touchpad, trackball, or other kind of alternative input besides a keyboard and mouse?
