I don’t really like touchscreen tech. I hit the keys on my keyboard really hard when I type. Any keyboard I use for a long time gets all the numbers for common letters worn off. I have a Blackberry, and not the Storm, partly for this reason. I always instinctively want to press really hard on touchscreens and then I worry I will break them. Touchscreens lack that satisfying feeling of the key going down, so you know you did what you intended; you just have to watch and see if what you hoped for happens with a touchscreen. I would only want touchscreen on my computers if I had a giant robot to press it gently for me.
