Well, it looks like the boy wonder from Redmond is starting to feel the effects from all of that Bolivian Marching Powder. We have to realize that information technology is the science of manipulating information and that most “real” information is alphanumeric, you know ASCII stuff. Nothing beats the keyboard. I am sure that Bubba and Lurleen will think this the greatest thing to come down the Pike since indoor plumbing for sending pictures of Lil Skeeter to Ma & Pa. But can you imagine trying to do anything with this abortion.
Dick! But it’s … cool!
I saw that on the news but somehow missed the price tag. Yikes! Very, very cool, though.
Maggie I was just guessing at the price tag. I’ve worked a lot with touch monitors and this is really a neat development, though it remains to be seen if it’ll catch on. Technically Las Vegas has been using tabletop, surface touch machines for many years in bars and such, but I I don’t think this style has been used for basic applications like this will be.
