2011 Acura TSX Sport Wagon: Buttons Are Best
October 11, 2011
Some people like the touchscreen. Some like the big control knob. I think buttons are best.
When you press a button, you know what youre going to get. No pop-up menu. No guessing about where something might be filed. It just happens.
I wish I could tell you that the whole subject of information interfaces is built on science, but after watching road-test editors and three-year-old children play with dashboard controls in exactly the same way (and while making identical sounds of delight), I believe that higher-order thinking is not involved.
It just depends on what you like.
