On the Super Fun Time Happy Blog, Israel-based Softwarepreneur Assaf Lavie looks at the shortcomings of the "magical invention" that is the touchscreen: your fingers are not transparent. His solution: a smartphone with both a touchscreen and a touchpad, at the back of the phone.

A dual-touch phone allows you to invent entirely new ways of interacting with your device. There are all kinds of gestures you could do, like pinch to zoom with one hand. Or maybe use a rolling gesture (like rolling a pen between two fingers) to rotate the screen in 3D.
