Touchscreens

I hate touchscreen. It's surely good for certain uses, but in general I prefer pressing buttons instead.
Today at the gas station, they had a new touchscreen display instead of the usual display with buttons. I had to type my PIN-code on the touchscreen, what do you mean security risk?!

Usually I cover the keypad with my left hand, easily feel where the keys are with my right hand, and type the code quick & easy. Now I had to look where the keys were and touch them with my index finger (usually I type half the code with my index finger and half with my thumb, goes twice as fast and people don't see the hand/arm movement). Anyone standing in a 10 meter radius could have read the code this time.

Touchscreen is nice, sometimes, but some people just don't think it through. Way to go, Tango developers.
