Right after yesterday’s Stevenote, I was standing in the Moscone Centre with a bunch of my fellow MacBU members (MacBUers? I don’t think we’ve got a good collective noun for ourselves). My manager asked me what I thought of the UX of the new iPhone. I told him that the first thing that I noticed was the scrolling on it. He hadn’t noticed it and said that he thought that it was the same as he was used to on standard Mac applications. ‘No, no,’ I told him, ‘he was pushing up to scroll down’.
After I got back from the Macworld Blast party last night (ears still ringing from Cheap Trick), I scrolled through my RSS reader to see what the buzz was like. It turns out that someone from the Cult of Mac blog overheard me talking to my co-workers. Heh. I hope I didn’t sound like my wrist was stapled to my forehead! My only despair would be that my manager didn’t notice the scrolling during the demo.
