Submitted by Zothecula
Zothecula (1870348) writes "Small touchscreen devices such smartphones certainly have their attractions, but they also have one drawback — there isn't much room on their little screens for touch-sensitive features. This means that users will sometimes instead have to go into sub-menus, or make do with jabbing their fingers at tiny controls. Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University's Human-Computer Interaction Institute, however, are working on an alternative. Their prototype TapSense system can differentiate between screen taps from different parts of the finger, and will perform different tasks accordingly."

ok to all the drama queens discussing that they changed the version numbers and whatnot, just remember to use kernels bigger than whatever you use now if available... who cares if they jump versions on increments of 0.00000001 or 1000000000 ... geez, if he wanted this could be kernel 398828811.000000002 and you would still use it and like it !
