But you thought it was credible to give Kissinger one?
Are you accusing Fuckerberg of lying to people? Blasphemy!
Being rhetorical, right?
Of which I never said otherwise. Of course it uses the active digitizer to get the pressure sensitivity, etc. But the screen is ultimately still capacitive.
All of that is easy to accomplish when you can simply exclude huge swaths of kids.
Slashdot is about whatever the owners/editors think it's about.
Then I stand corrected.
The screen is going to work just like the N900 did. So, yes, there is touch but not multitouch.
Just to clarify my ultimate point, being able to draw does not require a resistive screen. A capacitive screen with an active digitizer is plenty to get the job done.
It doesn't. It has a Wacom stylus -- something older than even resistive screens.
Umm, yes it does. Just because the screen had a Wacom digitizer layer doesn't change the fact that the screen itself is capacitive.
Yes, and? You either have dementia or you weren't around back then because the AC shitposting is a tiny fraction of what it used to be in the early days of Slashdot. I suggest you go back through the story archives to refresh your memory just a bit.
Try to do that with a normal capacitive screen - it's like trying to draw in boxing gloves.
Never heard of this thing called a "Surface Pro". It has a capacitive screen and people draw stuff on it all the time.
They are only making a couple hundred. So it would be impossible for it to take any significant market share regardless of the fit and finish.
