The topic: Looking at post holiday ads


And I was looking through the Best Buy booklet.  And towards the front were the touch screen computers.

And I’m looking at the picture, a little confused. What’s the point?  I mean, it’s a pretty neat concept, really.  But why would I want to put my fingers all over my monitor screen?  Why would I want to be that close to it?  Right now, my monitor is about five feet away from my face.  I’m leaning back in my chair, my feet are up on my desk. I couldn’t do that if I had a touch screen monitor.  And if I didn’t have to do it, then what’s the point of having one?

I can see it more in a laptop than a desktop, sure. 

Seriously, what’s the point?

We have touch screens on most of the computers attached to our medical instruments at work.  They work really well but then again we stand all day and move from instrument to instrument while doing 20 other things.  I don’t see the attraction of having one at home either. I am hard pressed some times to even use the mouse because of a cat laying in my arms and moving too much makes them crazy and they leave.  It’s cold here…I need their heat so the heck with touch screens.
