Working all day on a desktop touch screen with  your arms held out like that is just not close to ergonomic. 

Even on a laptop that is an ergonomic disaster.

Why didn't the MS ergonomics boys and girls see that?  They can design ergonomic keyboards but can't see that touch screens on desktops aren't the way to go?    Tablets and cell phones are held in more comfortable positions when you are touching the screen so they work out.

I think some MS executive(s) were enamored with them from too much sci-fi and pushed it through. One of the most dangerous things in the business world is an executive with an idea.

Just copying some Youtube videos from the desktop to a tablet (android) and Windows gives me the option to copy them as is or convert them.  Seems helpful except the leave out the info on what they propose to convert them TO  :screwloose:.  Idiots.

Yeah, I have seen that and always ignored it. Does anyone know what they are converted to?

Steve Jobs predicted that PCs were on the way out, and that tablets were the future.  The designers of Windows 8 believed him, and focused on the tablet market.

My tablet is like that, I swear it needs to update only when I am using it and it is Android.

My tablet is not for use as an internet device and it rarely has wifi active so I don't get so much of that.

My tablet sees most of its use in waiting rooms and a little surfing while at home but not at the PC.
