Martin Belam makes an interesting point when he writes The word “click” will become a generational marker. I was thinking about this myself – how much longer will the mouse or touchpad be considered essential computing gear?

Personally I love touch on smartphones and tablets, but having to constantly touch the 24 inch screen on my desktop would be an ergonomic disaster.

As an aside, I never considered the Windows, Icon, Mouse interface intuitive – touch technology gets closer.

One thought on ““Click” a generational marker

  1. He talks as though people are going to stop using mice or keyboards. Of course they’re going to be around for a while longer, at least until mind control becomes viable.

    If you don’t like the paradigm Windows press forth there are others to try out. I myself love tiled windows.
