Microsoft, having let Apple pave the way, has announced that they’ll be releasing touch screen computer technology in the near future. I wonder if what this report implies is correct though–a mouse-less computer would indeed be a bad thing. Sure, I love being able to touch my screen to control things. There are even times when it’s more convenient to do so. But I absolutely don’t want to do away with my mouse or my touch pad. I can’t imagine a laptop without a touch pad being much of a success.
