P.S. Thanks for the fast responses! I think this made the high score for most posts during a short amount of time!
The NXT touch sensor is not a variable sensor. It is either pressed, or not pressed. The RCX touch sensor IS a variable sensor. It changes values based on the amount of pressure.

Digital, actually. Analog is more like the light sensor.
Actually, a touch sensor IS an analog sensor, even if it only has two states (like the NXT Touch sensor, but NOT like the RCX touch sensor). The light sensor and sound sensor are also analog. Sure, it could also be considered digital (as in boolean), but normally we use the term "digital" to refer to an I2C sensor or UART.
