I could throttle you right about now: US Navy to ditch touchscreens after kit blamed for collision


I just want big butt....

Seriously, I'm with those who like tactile feedback.

In a different world, in which I used to work, this also applies to stage lighting control consoles. Touch screens are fine for functions you don't have to find in the dark, nor on a given beat, but some things need a button or (ideally motorised) fader.
