Once upon a time devices did not have multi-touch interfaces. Technology is moving at a blistering rate. I hope when Apple releases the Macbook Touch or whatever they call it they license “Touch Me” by Samantha Fox for the TV commercials. The video above is the PacklSound1 iPhone app. via gizmodo

Looking for a $50 Tenori-on?
