The Microsoft Mouse 2.0 Project

"Microsoft's Mouse 2.0 project is an interesting look at the next step for pointing devices in five completely different versions of multitouch mice. One of the things I liked about the Mouse 2.0 news is that we put our cards on the table at a very early stage and asked what the public thought. Speak up, we're listening."

Here's your chance to give your feedback on upcoming input devices and make a difference in what we'll be using in about 5 years :) I personally think touch-sensitive may be a little difficult to get used to, but perhaps they could improve the concept better. What are your thoughts on the concepts shown?

The Magazine of the Future

I've always been a fan of the magazine reading experience because of the ability to do a "big glance" at content in chunks, with a quick and easy way to navigate through pages. I also like being able to read content on two pages like a magazine or book, and being able to view spreads across two screens instead scrolling through pages one-by-one.

Lifehacker.com recently posted a video about the "Magazine of the Future" showing a new concept device that helps you read content similar to how you read a magazine, but in a more interactive way. Although the concept looks very cool, I'm still concerned about the (near) future of digital reading devices with single displays. Unless you're reading a digital book, single displays are still very limiting in my opinion, and I'd love to see a real world reading device with dual displays, like the Microsoft "Currier" book PC concept.

Show me a device with the best of these two concepts with a flexible display, and I think we've got a winner. What are your thoughts about “digital readers” and what do you think about single displays vs. dual displays?
