Over in the RemotelyCool forums an intriguing post just popped up regarding touchscreens for Windows Media Center. I'm a Tablet PC user and the thought of combining either a touchscreen or a digitized pen with an Electronic Programming Guide, for example is interesting. Yes, the high-end remotes for our HDTVs and home theaters are "cutting edge" now, but is that far fetched to see a move towards small touchpad remotes that even dual function as wireless handheld televisions? We've seen touchpad-tablets for audio, video and home-security, but a merger of WMCE and Tablet takes things to the next level.
What do you think? Are we just trying to put
"toys" together because we can or could you see some value?
