I am both old and dyspraxic, so it’s not surprising that I have trouble with interfaces, but I just shared/blogged an article about the problem, and many people feel the same way.
I have realized for a long time now that two-valued logic is not a good way of dealing with issues like sex and race, but I miss the days when pushbuttons worked that way. The article notes that the iPhone (which I am fortunate enough not to have) conveys one message if you press it lightly and another if you press it just hard enough. There’s a lot of that going around. Facebook can, as usual, serve as a Horrible Example: When I use wheel on my mouse, I sometimes Like things and offer to friend people because my touch is not delicate enough.
GUIs are gooey. I feel as if they were quicksand I am sinking into.
