What are the best things about touchpads?

What are the worst?

Best -
no moving parts
can be made all kinds of shapes and sizes
not very expensive


Worst -
the physics is complex
bad feed forward/signalling - it's hard to know what a touch pad can do since it's so featureless.

I guess what you are saying is that when you see one, it isn't obvious how to use it.  Maybe you don't know if it supports two finger, three finger gestures.  True.
