A Touchy Subject

: Touchscreen Technology Bringing the World to Our Fingertips


They can bring you a world of information and services at the touch of your finger. Touchscreens on electronic devices allow almost anyone to control and operate digital gadgets with a mere tap. Let’s take a look at how touchscreens work and the ways they are changing our present and our future.

How Touchscreens Work

There are two basic types of touchscreens: resistive and capacitive. (1)


Resistive touchscreens are the most common type of touchscreens. They’re typically found at ATMs and kiosks that distribute movies on DVR, etc.



Believe In Innovation

Technology moves fast.  But never as fast as it has in the last 20 years. In 1995 Windows 95 brought personal computers even more into everyone’s homes, and the internet entered commercialized public consciousness.

Most all of us now carry small personal computers (in the form of smart phones) in our pockets, and a day without using the internet doesn’t exist.  Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality hardware are predicted to become main stream next year while many already use a digital personal assistant like Siri or Amazon Echo.


Mobile Thin Client Computing Made Easy

ThinManager Mobile for iOS is an iPhone or iPad app that can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store. It allows you to connect to your ThinManager and manage it from your iPhone or iPad. You can shadow clients, change their configuration, restart, or disable them from the palm of your hand.

To use the ThinManager Mobile iOS app, simply visit the ThinManager Mobile page to download the Proxy Server.  After downloading, click the .exe file and the Proxy Server will install itself on your ThinManager Server and function as a service that will allow your mobile devices to talk to the SQL database.
