RIP, Touchscreens. We'll remember you.

It's surprising how much conversation we still hear on college campuses about touchscreen installations. It only takes looking around at hotels, restaurants, building lobbies, and other businesses that invested in touchscreen technology to see...well.. it's not being used.

We've blogged about the decline in touchscreen usage. Recently, we visited a hotel in New York City and noticed this piece of furniture placed under a touchscreen.

Was the furniture placement is mistake? "No, no one uses it anymore so it felt like a waste of space," one employee told us.

Take a tip from those outside higher education. It's time to move along from touchscreen monitors.
