Apple Multi-Touch


Multi-Touch is Apple’s touchscreen technology used in the iPhone. Currently the most advanced touchscreen system, it ignores accidental presses, lets you drag and zoom with logical finger motions, guesses what you’re typing on the onscreen keyboard, and more.

A lot of people seem to think that Apple is planning to introduce a Multi-Touch Mac. Plenty of people think it will replace the iMac. I don’t think so. I think that they will introduce a new Mac model that will use MultiTouch — if they do a MultiTouch mac. I suppose it’s logical for them to do it.

What type of mac would their new model be though? What do you think? What type of computer would benefit the most from a touchscreen? Not an iMac (your shoulder would get sore from stabbing at the screen anyway). Not a MacBook (pro or not), but close. How about a tablet? The tablet computing model is perfect for the Multi-Touch system. With current tablets you have to attempt to do basic computing with a stylus pen. You click icons and scribble text on the display. With Multi-Touch you’d be able to scroll easier, and it’s got to be a lot easier to type by pushing an onscreen keyboard with your fingers than dealing with handwriting recognition that mangles your writngs (I have horrible handwriting, as do a lot of others). I think if Apple were to produce a Multi-Touch Mac it would be a tablet; a companion to the Macbook line.
