    God damn, you're spot on with the touchscreen and fingerprints. I have a touchscreen laptop, and way back when the touchscreen worked, fingerprints was an issue.

    Sims like Apple is getting behind other companies, hope hey realize their position and gain again the "innovation" they claim to have.
