Seconded. We had them at college. With those old curved monitors the beams were about 17 yards from the screen in the corners, which meant it was easy to hit them by accident, plus it exaggerated parallax errors. Not that the resolution was so brilliant anyway...
People want consistent UI.
Maybe they do. But what they need is an appropriate one.
Having to have a muli-touch smartphone GPS and a button and dial tactile GPS in the car seems stupider than you assert touchscreen in a car is.
It's not stupid because they're used in different situations.
Both of them?
- I just saw a mouse in the kitchen. Is DDT OK to use? (1946)
- What does it mean when you dream of being chased by an elephant? (1947)
- Can you tell me the thickness of a U.S. Postage stamp with the glue on it? Answer: We couldn't tell you that answer quickly. Why don't you try the Post Office? Response: This is the Post Office. (1963)
- Where can I rent a beagle for hunting? (1963)

Some people might be motivated to make provision for their descendants. If I leave them stocks or property they can get dividends and rent forever. It's an asset that gives a future income stream.

There might not be one safe position. It might need to be fully closed for X minutes until dial Y reads less than Z, then opened halfway until blayada yadablabla.
This is why you need wheels & handles and a hardcopy monkey sheet. Hans! Turn that one clockwise
I've been listening to KSHE since the day they changed format in 1967. They play some great rock and roll.
They're a hundred miles away; Im in the fringe reception area so I listen online. So a few days ago I'm editing random Scribblings and the music stops. I curse Firefox and Flash and ComCast and pull the browser up to refresh the page that plays the music, and I see "Still listening?"
Dead heat between them and Sony's battery supplier.
