But this is the very point I'm trying to get over, maybe we just won't need screens at all in the future? Or keyboards or mice, .. or desktops! Who knows what's being thought of in research labs even as we speak? We sometimes read in the media about such and such development, think I read where scientists were developing direct brain - computer interfaces, but what about the stuff we don't read about? Who knows, perhaps we won't need any screen but our own imagination and just think about words and images to manipulate them? We've already got the computer interface demonstrated in Minority Report, how far away did that look at the time 10 years ago? Tablet devices were demonstrated in Startrek set hundreds of years in the future but are here now! To discuss how one screen button is better than a different one seems akin to discussing whether VHS or Betamax is better!
