This is a great article. I personally have missed tactile response the most -- gliding fingers over keys without pressing them. Or reaching and adjusting my car radio without ever looking at it. I know where the buttons and knobs and sliders are. My touch just confirms I'm in the right spot and then I operate it. I can't do that with my dash-mounted iPhone. I have to look at it to get something to happen. Not really where I want my attention to be focused when I'm driving.

These days, we're in a very transitional state of user interfaces. Everything's going touchscreen, or, if you follow the Kinect path, body language recognition (if you don't mind looking kind of insane trying to get your favorite music track to play). We keep getting told "This is the future!" by the people who're making money off of this kind of design.
Here's one man's take about why that's wrong, wrong, wrong...

Via +Dennis McCunney -- first score of 81. Might need to work on that.

WARNING: OPINION ON AMERICAN POLITICS FOLLOWS


I want to know why Congressional Republicans are so determined to cause so many millions of Americans real, prolonged, unnecessary suffering, so multi-millionaires and multi-national corporations can have even more money in their pockets. I want to know why so many millions of our fellow Americans have no voice in government, when their numbers vastly outweigh the 1% of multi-millionaires. I want to know why the government of this country thinks that corporations are people who should be given more and more, but actual human beings should just suck it up and work harder.

I know it’s a silly cliché to ask why someone hates America, but it sure seems like the modern GOP truly hates Americans … or at least the vast majority of us — certainly the least among us who have to struggle just to keep their heads above water. I can’t believe that anyone in this country who isn’t lucky enough to be in the 1% the GOP cares about can support a group of people who are just so profoundly cruel and devoid of compassion.

Remember: this nation put men on the moon in less than ten years using technology that is eclipsed many times over by what we take for granted today in a disposable cell phone. If we can do that, we can do anything, including easing the profound suffering of our citizens. We live in extraordinary times, and we need a government that can rise to the challenge to serve its people. The congress we have right now couldn’t put a man on the moon in ten years, or even twenty years. Hell, they couldn’t even put a man on a chair, because that would require extending a hand to him to help him stand up.
Before you comment on this post, please remember Rule One: Don't be a dick, unless you'd rather get blocked from my G+ thingy.

I hope everybody in our country gets to read this. I think it is our civic duty to share the truth.

Thanks for Thinking Different. Rest in Peace, Steve.

Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.

Work
Occupation
Sr Programmer Analyst
Story
Introduction
Programmer with a fannish and geeky nature. Former president of PSFS and had the opportunity to run Philcon 2000 -- a magic number. Also formerly SCA, way back when.

I don't expect that folks I follow will necessarily follow me back. Feel free to though, of course.
