Ask Tog: Keyboard vs. The Mouse

 # [via]

We’ve done a cool $50 million of R & D on the Apple Human Interface. We discovered, among other things, two pertinent facts:

  • Test subjects consistently report that keyboarding is faster than mousing.
  • The stopwatch consistently proves mousing is faster than keyboarding.

This contradiction between user-experience and reality apparently forms the basis for many user/developers’ belief that the keyboard is faster.

Every key is a display, so the keyboard itself changes between charsets, layouts, and functions.

Small things, links and miscellany, sparkling with light. Sam's tumblelog.
