Summary
  • PCs and portable computers have certain characteristics that hinder and annoy users. GUIs use so many icons that they have become indecipherable and inconsistent, and software publishers have even started including explanations to the pictures. Error messages are often vague and of no use, and Apple rarely designs indicator lights in its models to let users know when disk drives are running or when a battery is about to run out. The design of hard disks, with directories and folders, would be useful, but the 'save' command in many programs automatically takes files to the same directory. The cursor-control devices in many laptop models are difficult to use. Compaq's trackball easily gets dirty and clogged up. IBM's pointing stick and Apple's trackball work well, but their imitators do not.
