» A touch premature

Ben Bajarin thinks that the touch screens on PCs are the wave of the future and the “gorilla arm” problem is overblown. I don’t necessarily disagree, but features come with a cost and I’m not sure slapping touch screens on every monitor in the land is warranted yet.

Also, are we set on “gorilla arm” as a name for this? Because I thought “zombie arm” was still in play.

Bajarin also thinks:

It is way too early to call Windows 8 a failure, no matter what any of the pundits say.

Completely true. It’s just not off to a great start and “even Ed Bott” notes it’s got a tough road ahead of it.
