Sad to see people like this die, if there is an after-life, I hope he rests in peace. Great men like this come few in numbers.

Shame people like this won't get much attention for their achievements that actually have been beneficial compared to some "un-named scum bag" who gets huge media attention .

i have nothing against touch screens. however, touch input has ways to go before latency is down to as fast as a mouse. and nothing yet is as precise as a mouse. well maybe a pen and paper, but you get my point
 


Dont get me wrong the mouse is the ideal input device just all the Windows 8 haters (not so much here but on other posts) sooner or later will see the light.

Rip in peace, friend. Few inventions have changed people's lives as thoroughly as the mouse. This is right up there with the computer itself, electricity and the wheel.
