But don't worry, O-Bambi will find this evil entrepreneurship sourcery and strip them of all profits!
Touchscreens are “newfangled” and are not likely to see widespread adoption for 20 years or so. Kids today who’ve grown up with mobile devices and touchscreens will likely become accustomed to touchscreen keyboards and controls, and as they get older and take over workplaces as engineers and executives, the old-school MAK (Mouse And Keyboard) set ups will wane much like tactile-response keyboards (the clickety-clack types) and non-wheel mice.
Personally, it’s unnatural for me to reach up to touch my monitor for anything, so using an on-screen keyboard is still very foreign and difficult. I learned to type on a standard QWERTY keyboard and use a mouse to navigate, and I don’t see that changing anytime soon, even with tactile response touch screens.
I seem to recall an early touchscreen cellphone effort, circa 2005-6 or so, with tactile keys embedded in the touchscreen.
It was awful.
Somebody please help me out on which phone this was. Blackberry?
I love my iPhone but cannot get the hang of typing on glass. I even got a touch-typing app to practice up, but there's just no way -- without feeling keys -- you can approach anything like touch-typing.
