Dylan, I am surprised that it takes that long to reach a mere 25% in the notebook market. I would have guessed that by end of 2014 most notebooks would feature a combination of keyboard and haptic interface for user interaction.
I just don't get it. How & why would you use a touchscreen on a notebook computer? If the screen is detachable and can function on its own as a tablet, then sure. But when configured as a notebook with the screen flipped open and the keyboard & touchpad facing the user? Why? I also wonder if there are changes in the mechanical design so it is less likely a user will accidentally move the computer when pushing on that upright screen.
@ Frank. without a question, it will be a more intuitive interface, especially for OLD/new users.. like my parents for eg. my mom rarely uses a pc and has problems with using a mouse/kb combo. so I bought her a DELL AIO with touch screen. she says its much better with the touch interface..
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
