Is the computer mouse facing extinction?

A story written by the Washington Post poses the question, is there an expiration date for the computer mouse?  According to the Washington Post, for the first time, sales of iPads are taking over the sales of PCs in schools, according to Charles Wolf, an analyst for the investment research firm Needham & Co.  Even the growth of educational toys like Leap Frog are surpassing laptop and desktop computer sales.

People are growing more used to interactive displays such as smartphones and tablets.  If this trend continues, it is only a matter of time for computer mice to no longer exist.  Do you prefer touch screen, or old-fashioned point and click?
