All Things Multi-Touch

It is largely understood that Windows Vista is — in many ways — a flop. So it’s no surprise that Redmond is trying desperately to *gasp* come up with something interesting to offer. Tonight was a much-anticipated appearance by monkey-boy and the evil emperor at All Things Digital in California where they were to give people […]
