This HP salesman is actually doing a good job selling a device with software well integrated to a touch screen.
And Gary follows up asking "do you foresee the touchscreen replacing the keyboard?" and he's kind of smug about how no one is going to re-write their software to interact with a touchscreen.
(I type, with an onscreen keyboard.)
And now the HP sales guy is going off on voice controlled computers, and everyone else just kind of side eyes him.
I'm really enjoying #computerchronicles

Now the Stanford guy is being condescending to the woman.
And now he's playing with a primitive voice synth, and talking about how fancy and advanced it is.
@ajroach42 this might be the best chain of toots I've ever read
@rook I foresee live-blogging the computer chronicles to be a regular part of my month. Glad you got some enjoyment out of it.
