touchscreen imac

A website called PatentlyApple has uncovered, you guessed it, patents for a touchscreen iMac. The patent covers a multi-touch interface for Apple’s all-in-one, including an orientation sensor. Thre’s been rumors of an OSX/iOS combination for a few months now. Of course, this is a patent, so be aware that this might never be produced. One big cockscrew is something other writers online have written about that I agree with — that the screen size would make touchscreen operation very tiring after a short period of time, and that the Magic Trackpad makes more sense when it comes to the future of desktops.
