What's the pint of touching a screen when a mouse after all these years is just fine? Having your arm extended to touch a screen seems it would cause strain on the back.

Because there's no way anyone could possibly find a new way to use such a screen, right? Everyone's going to put it on their desk right in front of them and use it like a really expensive monitor, right?

Hehehe.

No one buys touchscreens for private use. Touchscreens are for computer retarded consumers at grocery stores.

Who wouldn't want to be able to control an army at the tip of their fingers? Or drop nukes at the push of a monitor? The future of monitors :).
