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.

Is touch that important? Have you ever used a touchpad, trackball, or other kind of alternative input besides a keyboard and mouse?
