Interesting post on slashdot today discussing how the iphone may not
work with many rich media/web 2.0 applications because so many rich
behaviors currently assume a single point of focus (the mouse) and
therefore use onMouse events to trigger behaviors. Apparently, this
is not the way the iPhone handles touch events on the screen.
iPhone certainly won't be the last multi-touch device, and a standard
will eventually emerge from the market to deal with these sorts of
interactions, but in the mean time how will we design sites to
gracefully accommodate enhanced interfaces like iphone?
Could a web 2.0 browser war emerge? (WBW II). Does the IxDA as a
group of UX professionals have a responsibility to help shape a
unified vision for gesture-based interactions on the web? I'm
thinking of theway the W3C took the specification for HTML out of the
browser companies hands...
Lots of questions here. I guess I'm feeling lonely and want to see my
mailbox fill up with ixda messages. (pull the pin and count to three
