Re: Smart console wars
@Shaunn I do not know but the way I see it Apple copy few thing from old phones and pda's... as in 1999/2000 I did see mini netbook with touch screen and start/home button build in the side... but customers did not respond to it...

@mhhf1ve the way I see it on the gaming market I would say Yes only to voice control as Microsoft started dropping Kinect and I think Sony will do the same with they motion... I think we are not ready for gestures - yet... but you never know...

Re: Smart console wars
@dcawrey yes you are right but everything is changing the way I see it...  as example ... few weeks ago I did see stores clearing Steam Link boxes at $5.99 - fire sale... you never know... as price of streaming devices keep droping low and low

@mpouraryan I do not know why but at the finish line I would see Amazon... as Amazon dropping prices plus brining Fire TV products to Canada at the deep discount rate...

Re: Smart console wars
Most definitely. I only meant that in something like technological devices, the best way to do things will spread and inferior systems will diminish, like how MacOS and iOS are growing closer together, though in this case, physical face keyboards vs digital keyboards.

Re: Smart console wars
I don't think touchscreens are always superior to physical keyboards-- otherwise we'd be typing on touchscreens instead of desktop keyboards. But for small handheld devices -- screen real estate is a premium that can't be wasted on keys that reduce the screen size availability.

Re: Smart console wars
I can remember a long time ago when smart cellular phones had physical keyboards and micro touch pads for mouse control. Now touchscreen Apple-style homescreens are the standard, presumably because they're superior.
