Computer Mouse Heading For Extinction

acloutie 5 years?... (625 comments)

I didn't RTFA but 5 years seems like a little too premature. Companies filled with non-technical computer users wont want to pay these employees to learn how to work with touch screens when they can operate just as well with a mouse and keyboard. Plus, like all new technology, the cost of replacing the current workstation with touch screens as opposed to the traditional station will be significantly more with little to no changes in the worker's efficiency. The cost-benefit analysis in this case just doesn't work out.
