    lol okay here are just a few. They will not know what it is like to have a wired house (everything will be wireless), what it is like to use stand alone remote controls (they will use smartphones for that or voice commands), they will not know what it is like to go to a movie theater to see a movie (everything will be home theater and mobile devices), and they will not know what it is like to have much if any physical data like DVD's (everything will be digital). They won't know what a land line is (everything will be cellular). It is an interesting article.

    Anyone who is in computer modeling will tell how indispensable the mouse is. Touch screen cannot possible replace the mouse on a laptop. The mouse is such a simple and genius invention that is hard to rival. What could happen though is a virtual mouse that operates by tracking the movement of the hand.

    I think the death of windowed interfaces might be a little early, but I can see the future being a mix of touchpads, styluses, gesture-based systems.

    A kid being born now will get quite the sampling because 10 years from now a lot of these things will still be around and a good deal of this technology will be too while we're transitioning to something else.
