The Future of Touchscreens, RickRolling Slowed Down and Visualized

TATMobile touchscreens
There's a load of great tech news happening out there every day, and, unfortunately, we just can't cover it all. Here are a few of the other noteworthy things we saw today on our never-ending journey through the wild, wild Web.
  • In the future, as visualized by TATMobile, touchscreens will accompany us from the bedroom to the office, and apparently, the mouse lives on. Fortunately, this looks much like a cleaner version of the grungy, post-apocalyptic interfaces we saw in 'Children of Men.' [From: Made With Computers]
  • The communication necessary for a RickRoll, or any other Youtube video, slowed down 12 times. [From: Kottke]
  • If you were thrown into a design rage over iTunes 10's ridiculous vertical minimize/maximize buttons -- entirely unusable if you're running the graphite theme in OS X -- then you'll be pleased to know it can be changed back to normal. TUAW's got a handy guide to making the switch back to horizontal, and don't miss Maniacal Rage's handy overlay-based roundup that reveals the differences between previous versions of the media app. [From: TUAW and Maniacal Rage]
  • The U.S. Open is tracking data from the tennis tournament on PointStream, a real-time data visualization that shows everything from player momentum to serve speed. [From: U.S. Open]
