Do you think that touch screen computer will be ever successful I think we are very much comfortable with the keyboard and mouse by the time.and from the time of these devices no other device of input is so popular. We are not expecting better touch screen devices. But i think accurate input can not be given by touch screen. I think to move the hand on the whole monitor is really a cumbersome task and will not prompt a person for long. What are your views.

I don't know whether it will be or not, but if it ever is, it will have to be technologically better than it is now. It's too easy to make mistakes and it makes mistakes all on its own at times. Personally, I don't like it, even on cellphones.

it is a very cool idea. maybe we just need to get used to it. i may have a very hard time to get used to that. i don't like dirty computer screen. i hate finger prints on the screen and especially hate it when people touch my screen when they want to point something out. so yes.. i'll have a hard time adjusting in my opinion, the keyboard and mouse won't be obsolete too quickly. there are things that makes more sense when we use mouse/keyboards anyway. almost all programs today are designed to be used with a mouse and keyboard. maybe when we start to use multiple touchscreens then probably the mouse and keyboard will be extinct. but the 'control screens' would mimic the keyboard and mouse because like you said, moving the hand on the whole monitor will be too tiring.

yes screen computer will come out soon. about the accurate input i guess it depends on the user..with the technology we have right now, screen computers will not be impossible.

For now, we are still relaying in keyboards and mouse but in the future, maybe all will be on a touch screen based. Accurate input via touch screen can be fix, we just have to wait and see.
