Finger-print smudges everywhere as touchscreens dominate at CES
Idling around the CES 2013 show floor I was struck by something - there are touchscreens everywhere.
I blame Intel. The company has announced that in order to be classed an Ultrabook devices must now have a touchscreen. And of course Intel's hand has been forced by the lumbering mess that is Windows 8.
Earlier today at a briefing with Lenovo I asked my standard CES question:
"Well, we've added touch" replied the beleaguered spokesperson, wafting an arm at an array of laptops that you can now control with touch.
And he wasn't lying. Seemingly every chuffing laptop, desktop and all-in-one PC now has a touchscreen. Meanwhile, in the press room, filled with people at the 'bleeding edge' (like a cutting edge but more painful) of technology tap away on their non-touchscreen MacBooks and old, Windows 7 laptops.
Seemingly, the touch revolution is yet to strike.
