Bill Gates signals end
computer mouse era
Microsoft is developing a system that could spell the end the use of
computer mouse, Microsoft Chairman
Bill Gates has said.
"The way you interact with the system will change dramatically," the
billionaire said at a conference in Canada, according to a report in
The Daily Telegraph on Friday.
He said that computer users of the future will control their machines
by voice and pen as well as touch.
Users of Windows 7 may issue commands by touching the screen rather
than by the traditional keyboard and mouse combination that has
dominated since the 1970s.
Windows 7 is Microsoft's attempt to
catch up with Apple, whose touch screen iPhone has proved popular.
Touch screens are appearing on a host of other devices, including
sat-navs, mobile phones and remote controls. A touch screen BlackBerry
is expected shortly.
