Touch screen laptops have improved, but 14 issues still make them infuriating rather than seamless

If you’re not sure what laptop you should buy, it’s worth considering a model with a touch screen.
Both Microsoft and Google have made a big push towards supporting touch on their devices. But Apple hasn’t added a touch screen to any of its Macs.
Touch screen laptops are more common than ever thanks to 2-in-1, or convertible, and hybrid laptops.
Touch screens on laptops have come a long way but they’re still held back by several hardware and software issues.

Following is a transcript of the video.

If you bought a laptop in the last five years, you’ve probably had to decide between a model that had a touch screen and one that didn’t. Some people love touch screens, others don’t see the point. Touch screen laptops have come a long way, and they’re finally starting to become mainstream, but there are still a bunch of issues holding them back.

Both Microsoft and Google have made a big push towards including touch on their laptops. Apple, on the other hand, hasn’t included touch screens on any of its Macs. You basically have three options. You can have a traditional laptop with a touch screen, a detachable keyboard tablet device, or a 2-in-1 that can fold into a tablet.

2-in-1 laptops, sometimes called convertibles, are way more useful with touch compared to traditional laptops. 2-in-1s are great for watching videos, and even reading articles can be a nicer experience thanks to portrait orientation. In tablet mode, 2-in-1s can be quite thick and heavier than a traditional tablet, but it’s nice to have the option when you need it. Regular laptops, on the other hand, force you to reach across the keyboard anytime you want to touch the screen. This feels a lot less useful than the 2-in-1 design. Finally, with detachable options like the Surface, …read more

Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon, and wife MacKenzie Bezos have finalized the terms of their divorce.
MacKenzie Bezos said she’s granting Jeff Bezos all of her interests in the Washington Post and Blue Origin, and 75% of the Amazon stock co-owned by the pair.
Depending on exactly how much money she gets, this is set to leave MacKenzie Bezos as the world’s third- or fourth-richest woman, joining the ranks of Francoise Bettencourt Meyers and Alice Walton.

Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon, and wife MacKenzie Bezos announced they’ve finalized the terms of their divorce after 25 years of marriage.

Jeff Bezos founded Amazon after he and MacKenzie Bezos got married, Business Insider’s Shana Lebowitz reported. In the community property state of Washington, which dictates assets acquired during marriage to be split 50-50, that means MacKenzie Bezos could have a right to half of her husband’s Amazon fortune if they didn’t sign a prenup (which they reportedly didn’t).

That could leave a wife divorcing the world’s richest man — who has an estimated net worth of nearly $150 billion — as the world’s richest woman; but that’s not quite the case for Mackenzie Bezos.

The Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal is entertaining every year, but the outcome rarely matters much in the grand scheme of WWE.
