Two items on design and technology from the BBC

One about current trends – an interview with industrial designers from Lenovo, whose Thinkpad computers are the successors to the ones formerly made by IBM.  Arguably even if Lenovo doesn’t set out to position itself as a design-led company, it still needs some design input into its products.  And this one about one of the designers of the original iPod.  I’m struck by the last couple of paragraphs where he regrets the click-wheel being superseded I think that it remains one of the neatest and most effective user interfaces around and, while I can see the advantages of touch screens, I also think something hasa been lost in their very widespread use
