A Funny Thing About Touchscreens

I got a BlackBerry for work purposes this morning. When I picked it up, I noticed it was locked – there was a big lock icon with a rounded rectangle around it right there on the screen. So I pressed it. It was just instinct.

Except… this isn’t a touchscreen BlackBerry.

Did I feel dumb? Yes. I felt like one of those people who will click anything and everything on a web page just to see what happens. The iPhone has programmed me, even though I don’t have one!

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
