Is There a Term for That?

The touch screen on the new Tmobile Motorola Cliq is pretty good. I have a screen protector on it, plus I am a lefty, so it is taking some focus to finger ‘Cliq’ on the right link with my big fingers.

On the other hand, I have no trouble at all thinking that my finger can click other things such as options on my VOIP phone or the icons on my computer screen. Unfortunately, neither of these actually have touch screens. In the case of my phone, I must have pressed everywhere at least a half-a-dozen times before it dawned on me that there are buttons all over the thing for a reason!

So I ask, is there a term for that?
