    In the article you said, "... Microsoft's more stringent certification for Windows 8 touchpad solutions,"

    I went through the published Microsoft Windows 8 Hardware Certification Requirements, but I've been struggling to find anything around touchpads. I'm aware of some touchpad design *recommendation* documents but nothing around actual requirements.

    Where are you seeing more stringent certification? Thanks!

    NFC = Near Field Communications in case anyone is wondering. Reply

    Is it "near field" because the device is within the RF wavelength being emitted? Reply

    No. It's physically near the device. Reply

    NFC wavelengths are ~22 metres, but the range is <20cm, so it's well within that wavelength, but the two are obviously not one and the same. Reply

    Let's end this button hate shall we? Buttons are great! They got us all the way through the industrial revolution through the information age. Why all the sudden do we all have to turn our backs on them and cast them aside at every chance we get? I say viva la button! :) Reply

    I agree, much prefer physical buttons over touch, some sort of tactical feedback at the very least. Reply
