Windows 7: Windows 7 Touch

19 Jan 2009   #1

Windows 7 Build 7000
Windows 7 Touch

I was looking into the Touch Monitors that are coming out but I have a question? won't they smudge really crazy. I mean what if I am eating cheetos? won't I have orange streaks all over my monitor?

I can understand touch monitors for certain things such as tablet pc's, but for general use, not so much. Yes, if your hands are dirty, you will make a mees of your monitor. If you have money to blow, or a specific reason for wanting a touch screen, have fun. If not, don't waste your money. It'll be fun to play with for a bit, but ultimately you won't use it. In my opinion at least.

Windows 7

As an iPhone user there is a anti glear cover that I have, it makes finger prints invisible and while I like the idea of rumors of touch, think that HP touch is pretty cool (must get tired on the arms though), as a musician, I could only imagine a PC that was more like a mixing board in that it layed flat and while Microsoft seems to have a jump on Apple with regard to touch in the OS, excluding iPhone, (also have to wait and see what happens with Snow Leopard), I think we will see tablets and note books that double as a laptop, similar to what's out there now, but with touch.

As a composer, I could for sure, see an audio program where you could use two hands and use a virtual mixer to bring up, down, mute, eq, various tracks like a real mixer.

Point is, there are sheets (disposible and keeps them in NEW condition) that would cost around $20.00~$30 dollars that would prevent smudges. I think Microsoft will be the leader in this. Only way I see Apple going beyond 10/15% would be a large scale corporation presence or Apple releasing their OS to certain 3rd parties, ala Dell, HP. In theory, its possible now as a person can build a hack and it wouldn't be to hard to offer the OS on a few hardware manufactures and have a smalled trained staff to troubleshoot it. Would love to see that as booting up mac and micro would be pretty cool without having to buy mac hardware (bootcamp/fusion/parallels).

What product are you you talking about? I know android is coming and there is supposed to be a good Win mobile coming but is it out yet on a touch phone? The newest touch that's supposed to be really cool (and will go look at it now online (thanks, haha)), is apparently the Palm Pre (spelling).

Happy MLK day!!

Try one, once you got touch you won't go back

I have had a touch screen now for over a couple of years and used to develop software using a 24 carat gold touch screen for the White House and UN amongst others.

They are superb and it is amazing how fast you can operate your pc with touch screen. IMO not a waste of money at all and there are some great bargain screens to be had at the moment, providing you don't want a 24" of course.

Try one, once you got touch you won't go back!

small print: mine didn't come with the female!!
