The web is all well and good, but what am I supposed to do when the world outside of the web is still hopelessly out-of-date when it comes to UI design. Case in point:
If I can't even get the box of cereal open without shredding the internal sealed plastic bag, we've still got a long way to go. And I don't believe efficiencies in the manufacturing process are entirely to blame. I think there's a lot of laziness on the part of the companies behind decisions like this.
Why do shopping carts never work? Why are ATMs so slow? Why do I have to press 12 things to get gas from a gas pump? If the world were as typically efficient as websites have to be to keep people from leaving, I'd imagine we wouldn't have to put up with silly inconveniences like this.
