“The Mac user interface, with its menus, radio buttons, checkboxes, windows, title bars, and yes, scroll bars, is built on an entirely different interactivity model than iOS. The Mac UI was built for a pixel-accurate indirect pointing device; iOS was built for direct manipulation with one or more fingers. The visual similarity of on-screen elements and the technical feasibility of porting them from one OS to the other should not blind us to these essential differences.”—
John Siracusa, perfectly summing up the Big Philosophical Problem I have with porting iOS touchy-feely interaction to the desktop OS.
“It’s hard to talk to a person when they have millions, man, because there is so much noise in their life. Everybody around them is employed, and they have “yes men.” You got to start hiring a “no man.””—Hall of Fame cornerback Deion Sanders in an interview with an Atlanta radio station, on cutting ties with troubled Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant, whom he once mentored.
