Jobs stated that one of the benefits of a multi-touch display is that it can ignore inadvertent presses. When combined with its predictive text feature, it should eliminate problems caused by "thick fingers". At least that is what Apple believes. We will have to wait until we can test it for ourselves before we can know for sure.I guess without a stylus, I better get my fingers thinner so that I won't accidentally press the wrong menu item.... LOL (I have thick fingers...)
LOL! Your last comment there reminds me of that great Roberto Benigni movie called "Il Mostro." (The Monster.) If you ever get a chance to see it, it's one of the funniest movies ever made.The predictive text feature of the iPhone will likely be a boon to the "thick finger problem," but no touch display will know which menu item or widget you meant to touch. I do imagine that the display will sense the center of the fingerprint, so you'd have to be significantly off for a touch to be misunderstood. (Not so for humans. )
Thanks for the tip. I'll definitely give it a looksee. Benigni's a trip (remember the Oscars after "Life Is Beautiful"?).LOL!

The gist of the movie is that there's a mysterious man in town who's molesting women and everyone's after the guy. Turns out it's just an innocent and bumbling Roberto Benigni repeatedly getting into awkward and hillarious situations where he ends up accidentally touching women. Even Benigni is terrified and thinks "the monster" is also after him. (All very Italian; like Fellini's "La Citta della Donna" - City of Women.)Thanks for the tip. I'll definitely give it a looksee.

Good day to us all,i don't think the finger will be an issue at all. They probably would have thought about the "thick finger" don't you think? I have a feeling we'll all be incredibly surprised by how well it works. Maybe not though, could suck bad. Just don't know.
