Why developers should embrace platform uncertainty
SUMMARY: The rise of hybrid laptop-tablet devices, which have both a touch screen and a trackpad, makes it essentially impossible for developers to know whether a given click comes from a fingertip or a mouse cursor, this article notes. That suggests developers should accept uncertainty and stop trying to control everything. "Eventually there probably will be some way to easily detect and know for certain which input device is being used, but for the time being you're going to have to live with some level of uncertainty," Scott Gilbertson writes.
