Hello again. I'm having issues finding any advanced info about touch support in Delphi. At the moment, I can't seem to find a way to add the scroll functionality to my app, so that it'd work as on metro apps in Windows 8 (such scroller as the Metro Internet Explorer has), so I could drag finger basically anywhere on the screen and it would scroll. I have a scrollbox covering almost whole form, and there I'd need that touch scroll function. Anyone have any good ideas, at least some articles I might missfound? Thanks

Hi guys :D I have a windows 7 touchscreen tablet and I would like an ubuntu partition. The issue is that the bootloader that comes with windows 7 doesn't support touchscreen input so i will not be able to select which OS to boot into. I understand that the windows 8 Developer preview uses a bootloader that works with touchscreens, so my question. Is it possible to use the windows 8 bootloader without using the OS to select between a win 7 and ubuntu partition and if it is possible, will it cause problems? Thanks :D

Last week, [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/news/story299002.html"]Indian officials unveiled a $35 Linux-based touchscreen computer[/URL] to the dropped jaws of users holding tablets 16x as much. Capable of web browsing with JavaScript and Flash support, word processing, video conferencing, viewing multimedia content, reading PDF files, and housing USB ports, Wi-Fi, and 2GB of storage, its affordable price tag left some in awe and the rest in disbelief. Slated for release in “early 2011”, the tablet is aimed at university students from roughly 8,500 colleges, allowing affordable access to nearly 500 courses available online in attempts to promote a turn around for a failing countrywide educational …

As everyone knows by now, the [URL="http://www.apple.com"]Apple[/URL] iPad has arrived. I don't have one nor do I want one. Even at $499, you couldn't run fast enough to [I]give[/I] me one of the stupid things--as we say in the South. I was hoping for something more when it came to a true "pad" computer. Not just an enlarged iPod Touch with a little iPhone tossed in for good measure. The great sucking sound you hear is the money you paid being sucked from your wallet and the enthusiasm for it being sucked from your soul. From it's crappy little 9.7 …

Hey all, I'm a library science student concentrating in info tech, and my passion is information delivery, specifically how technology is changing how we receive and process information. Specific examples would be the Kindle, tablet pcs, touch screens, and video-in-print. I'd really love to get into research and development, but I have no programming experience and very little knowledge of this new technology... can anyone recommend me some steps I should take and resources I should look at to get up to speed? Thanks! Kaylin

OK, the iPhone launched yesterday. Apple aims at the corporate market with support for MS Exchange e-mail and at the consumer with a snazzier connection to the Net wherever you are. I have to admit I was a little underwhelmed with the phone - which is ironic when you consider I've ordered one this morning. I should explain that as a self-employed Mac user I like the idea of a phone that synchronises with all of the songs I've bought online, holds my diary and everything and does it 'properly' rather than 'probably' (only last night I was picking up …

When [URL="http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20080222/105312322.shtml"]Bill Gates gave a speech[/URL] last winter and hinted that the need for a keyboard was going to be diminishing, the writer in me scoffed, but I should learn to take Bill’s little hints a bit more seriously because the next version of Windows (aka Windows 7) is going to feature the same touch-screen functionality found on the [URL="http://youtube.com/watch?v=rP5y7yp06n0"]Microsoft Surface[/URL], the monster table computer introduced last year (and [URL="http://youtube.com/watch?v=CZrr7AZ9nCY"]parodied here[/URL]).

So the worst-kept secret is finally out of the bag - the next generation of Windows will [URL="http://news.cnet.com/8301-13860_3-9953243-56.html?tag=nefd.lede"]work with touch screens[/URL]. It will be faster than current versions of the system and it will take multiple inputs. I can't help being just a little cynical about this one. Yes, I understand the advantage of a touch screen for the consumer and the end user - my own PDA is in fact an Apple iPod Touch (OK, OK, it's consumer technology but it does the job for a freelance) and I enjoy using the touch screen on that. OK, I'm an …

With the release of the Apple iPhone, threatening to shake up the cell phone industry, it's inevitable that companies will try to use ideas similar to Apple's. The latest "cause of concern" is [URL="http://www.smh.com.au/news/mobiles--handhelds/lgs-iphone-copycat/2007/01/19/1169095944823.html"]LG's Prada KE850[/URL] cell phone, which uses a touchscreen interface, and similar features such as web browser, Wi-Fi access, among other things. I don't think much of this. Although LG is using an interface similar to Apple's, and has similar features, it doesn't matter. For one thing, touchscreen interfaces have been around for a while. Any company could make a touchscreen cell phone if they wanted. It's …

For many people, the trend in desk décor recently has been to reclaim the desk space. Flat panel monitors and small form factor cases or the placement of the system unit down off the desk top has given us room to spread all the paper computers were intended to eliminate. But it seems the change might have come at a cost. We seek to express our individuality, after all, and when the PC isn’t there to show off out classy taste in design there’s not much left to work with. Never fear, hardware manufacturers are intent on helping out. Recent …
