Feeling nostalgic after reading that. RIP my Nokia 8310.
The technology can change, but good design principles remain.
Sure, they have to adapt as interactions change but error prevention and reasonable defaults should apply across all technologies. Even ones which are dying.
(loved my MiniDisc player…who's with me?)
Every now and then, I'll plug in my 2001 iPod (needs to be permanently plugged in to use) and listen to some old school tracks.
I've got an iPod nano with no charger (and no power). The tracks are entirely lost to me.
Great device though.
Why the bit.ly URL?
No real reason to be honest, gets you to the same place.
To be honest, I saw bit.ly link next to the title and didn't click it. Probably I won't click it. I always find it fishy when a URL is hidden behind a shortened.
Well, thanks for your feedback.
