    We take a quick look at when we might be able to get 7 capacitive touch screens in our cars.

    Those look so much clearer than the resistive panels. I can't wait.

    Capacitive is what DOESN'T respond to fingernails and such, correct? Only finger touch or object of a different temperature than the surface. Something like that,... .

    so basically is this what is in the iphone/ipod touch and apple's newest touch pads?

    This would be nice. Resistive touch screen are seriously a joke to keep them working good.

    It is my understanding that capacitive also technically allows multi-touch capabilities. That area has some patent landmines but maybe some hobbyist multi-touch implementations will pop up after the hardware is released.
