Ignore the sales numbers for the iPad and iPhone and iPod Touch. Ignore the touch screen interfaces coming in to desktop computers thanks to the innovations of Windows 7. If you want to truly believe that the future format of computing is touch based, watch a child.
I have an iPhone and an iPad. My son is 3 and is a master of both. I didnt give him lessons, he just picked up the devices (mostly when I wasn't looking) and figured them out. He plays games, watches videos, switches between apps and can amuse himself for hours on end with one of these toys.
My son can't figure out a mouse or a scroll pad, but give him a touch based device and he's off and running.
It's a testament to not only the intuitiveness of the device, how it works in the way one would expect it to work, but also to the nature of touch.
Even my 8 month old loves my iPhone, although he sees it more as a delicious teether than an entertaining toy.
catch the buzz ... pass it on.
