    Really? That's the most interesting question? I guess for gamers it is. But even for gamers, wouldn't a more significant question be what type of games this multi-touch display harken in the future? Now that you can actually reach out and grab your opponents, how will game designers decide how best to utilize the added functionality, or will the architects of tomorrow decide that it's too limiting to develop added functionality for an un proven platform. Indeed, the most interesting question is this: does this device harken the coming of a new gaming platform entirely? Microsoft Xbox, Nintendo Wii, Playstation 3, and now the Apple tab-stop.
