New mediums require new thinking

Got a big deliverable tomorrow so today’s entry is going to be short.  Saw an article about this Android Wear app from Minuum that got me doing a face palm:

Nooooo!!  Talk about taking one step forward, two steps back.  Who will ever need to type on a tiny screen?  Use voice, it’s multiple times faster and probably nearly as accurate.  And if you’ve got something embarrassing and need to type — the 1 out of 100 times that happens — use your phone.

The easiest thing to do with a new medium is to apply what works in the old.  Unfortunately that’s rarely the path to greatness.
