HP TouchSmart

HP is trying to sell its TouchSmart as the ‘computer as you’ve never felt it before”… whatever that means!

What is striking is that it seems to be copying the Mac interface (including some iPhone touches). Certainly if you watch the video, yu’ll see that they have a two-fingered scroll (just like the Mac touchpad!) and what appears to be a row of icons at the bottom of the screen (just like the Mac’s Dock!) and so on.

Not that these are negatives… far from it but to pretend that thye have just come up with these things is a bit rich! Anyway, I reckon the Mac still does these things much better. The TouchSmart is still a pc after all and therefore reliant upon Vista.. enough said!
