[QUOTE=ClemInKC;2682052]I had an XP tablet back in 2002 or 2003, and it was OK, but the quality of sensitivity changed over a few months. When I look at cafe-registers with touch-screens (since mid-90s, I think), those users say they must hold their taps on some icons, not on others, some require a smear, some only react to ballpoint pen taps. I think touch-screen technology still has some usage-and-lifespan issues.
It’s going to be exciting to see all of us forced into them. I may start a personal relationship with a glass-replacer because a lot of my windows might be smashed as I throw touch-screens thru them.
Anyone remember those first mice with the roller ball that seemed to go on and on? They had all the sensitivity of a BB in a boxcar, sometimes.[/QUOTE]
I’m afraid to run my lawnmower in one part of my yard for fear of finding
the old mice that I flung out into the yard from my patio…
several years ago I held a “pogram” on mice that had ANY moving parts
other than the buttons and scroll wheels.
Personally I believe there are two kinds of mice, those made by Logitech (opticals) and those I put in the trash without a second thought
The one exception to this is my ONE, very old, Kensington trackball that still sits in it’s sealed package
On touch screens I still have two working Tablets, Fujitsu’s but they are stylus rather than “touch”, I’m not sure I’d want a true “touch” because it lacks precision.
