Touching people’s screens

2009-06-10

Are you a screen-toucher? Do you drag your oily paws around on its shiny surface all day, while discussing points of interest with your co-workers? Or is there an invisible wall between your fingers and the screen, a mental imperative, a RoboCop’s fourth directive, to avoid direct touch at any cost? I have that wall.

What about other people? Can they touch this? If someone touches my screen, it’s hammer time.

Other rules hold for touch-screens of course – I use an iPhone myself. As for non-touch-screens, I know there are many kinds of people out there (namely, four), but let me just point out this: the day a Stargate thingy or some trans-dimensional portal appears – or something that looks like one, anyway – I will definitely be among the people still having arms by the end of the day.

In the meantime, here’s a poll.
