still have to take at least one hand out of the "typing position" to use the Clit;
No. I have to take one finger out of typing position. And being as the QWERTY keyboard only puts a few keys within reach of my index fingers - and not all of the most used ones - it is a far lesser drawback than taking my whole hand away to use the touchpad with decent accuracy.
But go ahead and tell us how awesome your touchpad is. I can't force you to acknowledge reality if you choose otherwise.
While you're at it, see the posts about AGW.
The key part of that acronym is the letter A - for anthropogenic. There are occasionally posts here on climate change, but very exceptionally rarely do we see any that tie it directly to human activity. Furthermore if we look at the comment sections in any of those articles - anthropogenic or not - we see the true voice of slashdot readers bends heavily to the right.
And finally, notice that at least once a week we see an anti-Obama - or generally anti-democrat - article on the front page here. How often do we see an anti-GOP article? Almost never. And I challenge you to show me an article that ever made the front page that dared to challenge Ron Paul on anything, ever.
Personally, I find
I'm curious to know what subject you think that would be. Certainly not politics, science, economics, constitutional liberty, crime, taxes, religion, birth control, or education.
there is nothing voluntary about it
You can opt to not use a cell phone. There are other communication options. Civilization got along just fine for thousands of years without them, and will continue to go on without them.

Did you not bother reading to the bottom of the page?
a drudge report myth
Weak troll. And citation needed.
How about this link, which is at the end of the article that is here on slashdot? It plainly states
the top link on the Drudge Report led to a YouTube video in which an Ohio woman said she's going to vote for President Obama because he gave her a phone.
If you're upset that Obama is giving "freeloaders" gratis cell phones paid for with your tax money, don't be. Firstly, Obama had nothing to do with the Lifeline program: the "Obama phone" narrative is a myth that both liberals and conservatives have fallen for since 2009. Secondly, Lifeline isn't paid for with tax revenues. Rather, Lifeline is funded with a pool of money, called the Universal Service Fund, which is paid for with revenue donations from telecommunications providers. Some of those providersâ"like Verizon, for instanceâ"pass off that cost to their customers with a Universal Service fee, but the government doesn't mandate that the money come from citizens, meaning it's technically not a tax.
It is sort of sad that the woman in Drudge's "Obama phone" video has no idea that her free cell phone has nothing to do with Obama. But conservatives who would try and hold her up as an example of a liberal president gone wild with handouts are just as sad and ignorant, and more cruel by a large margin.
It would appear the weak troll is you, who couldn't bother to follow the link that slashdot provided. The surprise here though is that slashdot is actually countering - rather than propagating - something from drudge report. The latter is far more the standard m.o. around here, especially when samzenpus is involved.
Frankly, if a PC game doesn't require a Sound Blaster 16 card and arrive on 25 floppy disks, then I don't want know.
Sounds rightfully 80s to me. Really, though, the most important line - at least, if it is true - comes later in the article:
if you already own a copy of either the Windows or Mac version of Retro City Rampage, you can pick up the new port for free.
Samzenpus, are you OK? Were you recently hit in the head or something?
Pre-judging you? Only of being human, sir.
You prejudge me on a lot more than that. A large portion of your messages are dedicated to what you assume to be true about me, and many messages that come after them are dedicated to either you trying to hold to those assumptions in spite of reality or trying to set up little "gotchas" in the hopes of finding flimsy support for your assumptions.
In fact it is rare that you write a comment about me or in reply to me that does not prejudge me.
Morality is wholly positive; prejudice, negative.
Then why do you prejudge me so often?
Thus, I deem "moral prejudice" an oxymoron.
I would then expect you to be ashamed of your immorality in how often you prejudge around here.
