Dell’s new S2340T 23″ Multi-touch monitor: 10-finger touch at 1920 x 1080 full HD resolution in a 23″ inch form factor

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/10/24

A while ago, I wrote about Some notes on multi-touch and Windows.

Today, Dell introduced the S2340T 23″ monitor with multi touch support, aimed at Windows 8. It surpasses the minimim requirement of 5 fingers:

It also features a multi-position, articulating stand, a 10-point touch and Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution.

This comes much closer to Microsoft Surface Table. Hopefully that SDK will fully support this monitor.

Some notes on multi-touch and Windows

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/10/06

While fooling around with Microsoft Surface, you are astonished with the number of fingers it supports: 10 is no problem on the Samsung SUR40 which can also do full HD resolution (more specs here).

Not so with the standard Windows 7 touch support: that has only 2.

As I want to increase that to better mimic the development environment to the actual environment a few notes:

Anyway, his webinar is awesome. Be sure to get the slides, watch the replay, and read the questions follow up.

Watching it you’ll get a better understanding of defending against SQL injection.

How to install Windows 7 on a virtual hard disk (VHD) in 10 steps (via: Guides & Tutorials)

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/03/12

Handy when working with Microsoft Surface: install your development environment on a separate VHD that you can boot as your physical machine (Microsoft Surface SDK does not like being run in a Virtual Machine):

If you accept the constraints described above, I propose the following procedure, which I think is the easiest way to install Windows 7 on a virtual disk in multi-boot

Note: Within the VHD you can still access all the files on your physical HD.
