Hey there billycylo,
I apologize about the late response, thank you for being patient! I think that would be a great idea, since I know touch screen is more convenient for some folks. If you have the time, would you be willing to submit feedback via Google TV to let Google know about your idea? While they won't respond directly back to you, that is the best way to submit any ideas, as they take all submitted feedback seriously.
I look forward to your response, and if you have any other questions or concerns for me, please let me know!
