I really don't see much use for touch screen technology in the home.

Who sits that close to the monitor?

everyone knows gravity is 3x stronger at home.
You don't stand in front of this thing for 8 hours at home.
To use this on a desk while sitting means raising your hand constantly with nothing to support your hand. The only way to make this work is to make yourself a special desk where the display is placed very low and inclined.

Its about time someone has to use the power for raising a hand while working. I think working like that would lessen the normal disorders of office work... Or at least I hope so.
