The Pain of Fingers Dancing on a Touchpad

By | September 3, 2009


Before I leave the poor folks at Nokia alone, I must take issue with one more thing about their promotional videos for their new Booklet.

Touchpads are mostly poorly used; I’ve only seen a handful of people who can use them well (I’m not one) and more quickly than a mouse. If you’re going to focus on them in a promo video make sure you find one of these people, because frankly there’s nothing worse than watching someone try to navigate via a trackpad. It’s like watching a funeral.

Oh, and another thing. Get a good hand model. Not someone with weird colored fingernails and a hands with veins and tendons so prominent even the painted fingernails don’t distract attention from them.
