Thoughts in Transit

Nokia n95, when it comes to web browsing/pdf reading, is an interface designed with this generation of hyper-dextrous thumbed gamers in mind.

Except that they’ve put the directional controls on the thumb where the A and B buttons normally are.

That’s the X, triangle, circle and square buttons for those who aren’t old enough to remember the NES.

The old Konami code was beta testing for today’s mobile interface technology.

Amusing thought of the day was iPhone users poking holes into the pages of books trying to get to read the next page.

Wonder if the iPhone touchscreen system will encourage speed-reading techniques…

Microsoft’s Zune system, which is kinda the answer/one-up to iPhone interface (only on desktops) is about 10 years away. Wondering if in 10 years anyone will actually care enough about desktops…

…Artists and designers, yes, but they’re all on Mac Systems; which will be thought powered while Microsoft is still debugging charades technology for desktop interface…

    I spent so long reading books almost exclusively on my Palm, that when reading a dead tree book, I still have to resist the urge to check the bottom of the page to see what time it is.
