I recently bought the Magic trackpad from Apple, and I like it very much as a mouse replacement. I agree with this article though, it is just a new kind of mouse, indirect input, with some fancy gestures (which may get more fancy if Apple open this up to developers). Touchscreens are the real deal when it comes to gestural input and direct maniuplation, but lack the precision of indirect input devices. We are blessed with fat thumbs, and as long as that is true, mouses and their variants will be around.

My first thought was, surely the military would not expose itself to the risks of a consumer device? But then I thought it is inevitable that technology as ubiquitous as the iPhone seems to becoming gets put to some usage that many of us would not feel comfortable with. It's usually the other way round anyway, we get the military gadgets that have been civilianized. But as the article points out - the applications have their place in disaster emergency situations.
