It's virtually impossible to imagine now, but back when the iPhone was launched in 2007, Google wasn't planning to make Android for touchscreen devices.
Behold the future, my friends. It isn't hoverboards or laser swords or transportation hailing apps or drone deliveries, it is this: a gigantic touchscreen that lets you build your own pizza on the table that you will eat it on.

Look at this doofus talking about the Israel crisis while shuffling cards on a giant touchscreen. I don't speak French, but Mario Aguilar says he does and, at the end, this guy says "I am a complete piece of shit, I hate myself." Well, he doesn't really say that, but he's probably thinking it.

It's taken forever and a half for Logitech to introduce a new universal remote but they finally have. Meet the Logitech Harmony Touch, a new universal remote that changes the Harmony button layout and replaces most of its actions with a touchscreen.
