The iPod, don’t Touch



Take a beautiful object, one that feels sensuous and slinky in feel and a pleasure to hold and play with, give it the power to connect to the world, the capacity and the capability to be so much more than it is intended to be – and lock it up tight. Wifi and browser but no flash or java, no application downloads, no skype or email, don’t connect people – isolate them in your hand. No man’s land is a big step backwards.

What a waste of what could have been. The future is about access, not the device.
