Windows 7 is multi-touch. Does anyone care?

Oh good, Microsoft is really blowing us away here. First they showed off Surface last year, multi-touch on something table-sized. Now they’ve incorporated it into a laptop-size across all of Windows. Keep in mind this is something without a release date, and yet Apple’s been doing this pretty seamlessly on the iPhone, roughly 10% the size of a laptop screen for almost a year now. So by the time this even hits the consumer market it will be a 2-3 year old technology. And this is supposed to impress us? Oy.

Hi there. My name is Tom Pacyk and this is my small home on the web. I love the intersection of design, technology, and communication, which is a combination that led me to a career in sales and marketing roles at places like Zoom and ServiceNow. They're a bit old now, but I also had the opportunity to publish a couple of books along the way.

Portland, Oregon is home for me, my wife Beth, and our three kids, but I'm actually a Midwestern transplant—I grew up in the Chicago suburbs and went to school at Purdue and Illinois. When I find some free time I'm probably going to concerts, rooting for the Portland Timbers, or working on my Sunshine Burn Photography project.
