Sad day, sad day
how the best tech usually loses the battle of the market place. I may be getting old but this romance with touch screens will end soon. What happened to RSI, does it not work with touch screens ? Personally speaking, I hate smudges on the screen when doing most tasks or even playing about, some iPhone fans seem to like using ones with huge cracks in the screen as they often go out and buy the same again but a later version.
There's no getting away from it, people are generally quite gullible, nay, f*cking stupid .... and a shiney novelty to wave about in the pub seems to be their only agenda, not getting any work done, or having fun even.
Losing half my screen real estate in order to type an eMail or enter a web address or complete an on-line form is IMHO - flippin bonkers, never mind switching screens to type upper/lower case or numerals.
Got to say it, you must be f*cking mental to want anything to do with a touch screen, and it doesn't matter which tech tat firm knocked it out ......... didn't you ever repeatedly press Delete by accident ? How thin are your fingers ?
I feel sorry mostly for all those grannies that I am regularly called upon to help with their new device, who have an iFad, Windowlet, Googlegawp@, Samsmug Glaxo, etc, to compliment their Parkinson's disease, simply because their grand daughter/son or other stupid offsprog said that they should have one in order to do Face Time. For fucks sake, with the iFads, you don't even get a manual that you can read unless you are actually conneced to the internet !!!!!!!!!! How daft is that ?
Sometimes I feel like we are all drowning in a sea of IT lard and that the HCI handbook went out of the window some time ago .... along with our common sense.
