"Multi-touch technology has been a reality for consumers ever
since Apple brought the iPhone and iPod Touch to market, letting us
enlarge and shrink web pages and photos with a pinch or expand of a
thumb and finger tip.
"Although Asus brought multi-touch to its Eee PC series
"touchpads" long before Apple brought it to the MacBook and MacBook
Pro, and is also available HP's all-in-one iMac-like desktop PCs
through a driver update, 2009 is the year we'll see multi-touch go
mainstream in the world of PCs at large."
