Tech design can't move that fast

  • Interesting piece that lists 15 current technologies that a child born today will never use.
  • Some of the predictions are wrong. Mice will not be replaced by touchscreens unless people's arms are re-designed. People forget that human biology is part of the system.
  • Cars have the same controls today they had when I was a kid. I was 57 earlier this month.
  • If Microsoft really thinks they're getting rid of windows (with a lower-case W) they're going to learn the hard way the world does not care what they think. Same with Apple and Ubuntu. I'm guessing the companies are smarter than that. And thankfully we can fork Ubuntu if they make that mistake.
