No Touchie - The Next Step

Think that TED Talks video we all received about the multi-touch tech was amazing? Well, so did I. Then my friend pointed me to this.

I mean I thought the TED Talks video was remarkable, never mind the concept developed in the video posted on your blog. But to be honest, I do see both advantages and disadvantages to this type of progress in the business world. Do you think that continuous development is needed? Will we ever come to a point when technology can no longer remediate?
