In responding to Christian's question on the PSP interface I tried to
describe an aspect of the interaction as "memory mapping of category element
I know my ATM card pin as [bottom middle]+[2x top right]+[top middle], not
by the actual numbers.
I've learned to navigate the UI of my mp3 player by remembering the sequence
of physical key presses - not by looking at the UI while I'm driving. Hold
[play] 3 seconds, then [down \/ ] then [right > ] to tag the current song in
to the favourites list.
I'm sure there is a more eloquent way to describe this aspect of how we
navigate certain UIs.
