Accustomed to the touch interfaces on her father's iPhone and the family's Surface, Todd Bishop's two-year-old daughter found it curious that her Dad's MacBook Pro was unresponsive to her touches and swipes. After watching the short video of the puzzled little tyke, the self-congratulatory OS X Human Interface Guidelines ('the OS X user experience is streamlined, powerful, and elegant'), which include a section on Handling Gestures Appropriately, kind of read like The Emperor's New Clothes. So much for thirty years of consistent user interfaces!
