Surprisingly, touchscreen laptops don't suck

How Windows 8 challenged the 'gorilla arm' ? and won

Quote:
With Windows 8, touchscreens are more relevant than ever before. However, some pundits have long believed that a touchscreen simply doesn't belong on a laptop. Sometimes, they quote Steve Jobs. "Touch surfaces don't want to be vertical." That's Jobs in 2010, telling the world why Apple notebooks wouldn't feature the technology.

Says who? More relevant to who and in what way?

OK now I'll read the article. I find it helpful to have a question that needs answering when reading... ... ... stuff.

But I have to warn everyone it puts me in a bad mood when I'm reminded of how often Steve Jobs use to agree with me!!

If the people who use them say so...

You already know what the people who don't use them think. They think they don't want to use them... it's a complicated world!

Why make comparisons!? I think MS fails all by it self!

But they we use differing measurements for failure. ":O}

Interestingly, even while the author is singing the praises of the touch interface, he still admits to needing the mouse and keyboard. Hardly a ringing endorsement.
