Scrabble v. Scrabble: Are wooden tiles or touchscreens better?

There are 2 comments on the WTOP-FM Washington story from May 15, 2012, titled Scrabble v. Scrabble: Are wooden tiles or touchscreens better?. In it, WTOP-FM Washington reports that:

Author Stefan Fatsis shows off an early version of the Scrabble board called 'Criss Cross Words' during a recent talk at the Tenley-Friendship Library in D.C. 'QI' is now the most frequently played word in Scrabble because if you want to get rid of your 'Q' and there's an 'I' sitting there, you can do that, says Fatsis.

I have fondness for the wooden tiles but they are going to lose out to the touchscreens over time. There is no stopping it.

Anna has a point. We are now on the age where people wants to use touchscreen because it is more comfortable to use and easy to carry. It is part of the many improvements in life.
