I'f you have an unrooted android phone with Facebook as one of the irremoveable bloatwares, it collects information in the background and transmits regularly despite you never having opened it, or signed in
Other than being able to recognise the hardware as a mouse, I see no support for my toshiba touchscreen laptop (élan hardware) working fundamentally different than an absolute mouse pad (ie no contextual gestures, swiping). I'm required to have surgical precision finger placement to manage scrolling via scroll bar and text editing, not very useful.

schwit1 writes Glen A. Larson, the wildly successful television writer-producer whose enviable track record includes 'Six Million Dollar Man', Quincy M.E., Magnum, P.I., Battlestar Galactica, Knight Rider and The Fall Guy, has died. He was 77.
From the article: Battlestar Galactica lasted just one season on ABC from 1978-79, yet the show had an astronomical impact. Starring Lorne Greene and Richard Hatch as leaders of a homeless fleet wandering through space, featuring special effects supervised by Star Wars’ John Dykstra and influenced by Larson’s Mormon beliefs, Battlestar premiered as a top 10 show and finished the year in the top 25. But it was axed after 24 episodes because, Larson said, each episode cost “well over” $1 million.

EVERYONE there keeps a coat on their chair, some even wear mittens because its cold enough to cramp/give your fingers arthritis. The theory is that by constantly pumping in arctic air, the building owners can charge for more electricity.
