Stop the Windows 8 bashing! Progress and change are not bad things

Over the last several weeks, reviewers, analysts and reporters seem to have forgotten the very raison d’être for being in the technology industry in the first place – “to go boldly where no man has gone before”. This is especially true when it comes to Windows 8’s user interface.

Touchscreens may have completely changed the mobile phone interface, but tomorrow’s phones will go even further, responding to grip, squeezing and other input on the sides and back of the device. This, at least, is the vision of  Swedish interface designers TAT (The Astonishing Tribe), which recently demoed a concept phone called Fuse at the Mobile World Congress.
