      Because it's complete rubbish.

        While it's a provocative title, the article actually makes decent points. It's not saying that provocative/innovative interfaces won't exist. Just that functional ones will become more apparent.

        See: Line, WeChat and other messaging apps where you can interact with other services in a text conversation. Boring interface, but in many ways supremely intuitive for the average person.

        I don't think the article is rubbish at all. Boring (which, here, seems to be used as a synonym for "obvious") interfaces are going to be incredibly necessary to make complex devices and services easy to understand. It sounds dull, but the challenge is kinda interesting.
