    What are these new-fangled touch covers? Do they generate unicorns?

      Japan always comes out with “limited edition” things to make it seem exclusive. So it makes sense in the Japanese market that they are offering exclusive touch covers.

    I shared an idea with MS that they should work out a deal with decalgirl, sticker boy, skinit…etc. to make ‘skins’ for the touch / type covers so people could get ones to match the skins on the pc’s and they may be tempted to buy more than one so they can change up based on their mood.
