Yes, but in 2001 they were still calling it the "FingerBoard", and it still wasn't shipping.

Re: DiamondTouch

They have shipped about 100 units to various institutions and companies for exploration, development and actual use. Cost is currently about $10K. They expect to release it commecially by the end of t...

People will do almost anything for fun, but if you have any life beyond this project, you'll find that you'd be further ahead working at McDonald's in the evenings until you've earned $1K to put toward a TouchStream on eBay. :-) I do software and UI design, and my dissertation was on very low-level ...

Definitely gone. And left a trail of dissatisfaction on their way out: http://www.resellerratings.com/seller_info.pl?seller_id=2173 Always sad to see a company with stellar customer service (they still have an 8+ average rating) go out this way. Reminds me of another company many of us have dealt w...

Re: mousing on both sides of a TouchStream?

Hi, I'd like to be able to use both sides of my TouchStream for mousing, but it appears that you can only enable one at a time. Anyone know if there's a way to do this? -Thanks I don't know if you can enable it for both sides at one time, but here's what I did: Set left-palm slide-left and right-pa...

I'd been checking every couple of weeks to see if anything new was turning up on FingerWorks, and this just showed up in the last week or so. It may have been around for a while before Google indexed it, of course.

Is this where that large OEM MacNTouch order went?

Has anyone else posted a link to http://stenovations.com/writer-pic.htm ? It looks like it's based on a relabeled MacNTouch, and since they say that they "have an inventory" of their product, I'm speculating that that batch of panels may no longer be headed for the surplus market. Looks like another...

Sigh...

I joined the forum on 6/17/2003, the first non-FingerWorks employee to do so if I'm not mistaken. They almost made it to two years. :(

Whichever ghost is maintaining the website probably finally noticed that many of the links led to "page not found". If you click on the CES 2005 press release link, it still takes you to the "not found" page, which incorporates a site map. Many of the links there are still live, including the link t...

It's great if this is true, but I'm not getting my hopes up TOO much yet: 1) It's one response from a reseller, in contrast to the numerous resellers reporting that there's no hope. 2) If they DO go back into business in a few months, they've lost credibility with a lot of resellers, not to mention ...

The original FingerWorks Forum is fixed!

Well, I don't know how completely fixed it is, but it's at least showing accurate update times for threads and groups. It's a little encouraging to see things getting better rather than worse.

"Surplus" MacNTouch keyboards?

I seem to remember someone on The Ex-Forum mentioning a stash of MacNTouch keyboards left over from some big project. Does anyone here remember what the story was? Since it's starting to look like the G5 PowerBooks are being delayed until never or so, it might be time for me to put a little more mon...

A couple of category suggestions...

Do you suppose we should have a "Meta-discussions" category for people to ask questions or make suggestions about this forum? Otherwise, people are likely to post unrelated questions wherever they see the most traffic. (As I am with this very post. :-)) I'd also like to see a "News about Fingerworks...
