Not many have multitouch enabled monitors and the ones that do aren't exactly natural to use in a vertical mode. Multitouch works best on mobile devices that you tend to hold horizontally. Now Microsoft thinks it has the answer in the form a new mouse — Touch Mouse, that supports gestures. This mouse has a capacitive touch sensor on its back bring new meaning to "now stroke your mouse".
