I can see, however, that the two technologies might come together. For instance, a PC that has both touch-screen technology with a mouse, as well. What would this be good for? Well, for one, it would allow all touch-screen capabilities and applications to be used -- things that mice simply cannot do. This may be good for art applications, for example. But then have the mouse for all other uses. Even with this implementation the mouse wouldn't be replaced by the touch-screen feature -- or at least I don't see that happening. With both of them part of the same machine, I still see the mouse being used more than the other technologies simply because the mouse invokes events that touch-screens simply cannot handle physically (ie a basic roll-over).
