Lol @ 10-point multi-touch. Who the heck is going to use the whole 10 fingers to smear the screen?

Heh, I could imagine they will make screens 12-point multi-touch in the future. 10 fingers, 1 nose and 1 $@!(. Lol.

Or better yet may be it's for mulyiplayer gaming for two people to use at once. Just a theory though.

Marketing.

Same reason why gaming keyboards claim anything above 10-key rollover. What, are you going to smash your hand on the bulk of the keys?

Or that displays claim 10,000,000:1 contrast ratio (this is like your room lit at night to being out in a sunny day)

Or mice that have 12,000 DPI.

The ones that crack me up are the monitor/tv MFGs that claim Infinite Contrast Ratios.

And its getting to be the same way with pixel densities, especially on mobile, some units are over 400 ppi now?

Over 550ppi to be a little more specific.
