Google Stuff just keeps on piling up today - and I'm trying to work through my second playthrough of Mass Effect 2 on insanity (fourth playthrough overall). I have the sneaking suspicion, though, that nobody sympathises with my problems... Anywho, Google just unveiled the tablet user interface for Android 3.0, Honeycomb. Looks pretty decent I guess - somehow, it reminds me of Tron.

I'm not saying it's not cool, 'cause it is, but again Google, like so many others, have totally missed the point. Unless of course they are only targeting "techy" users?


Or targeting anyone without preconceived ideas of what it should look like. Sure, it's pretty different from the interface on Android phones - but then, it's not a phone, so why shouldn't it have an interface designed for a tablet instead?

Besides, who buys *any* device and expects to not have to learn anything new? I buy a new phone, the interface is different from the old one, even for the same manufacturer. Buy a new laptop, Window 7 has replaced XP, and the newer Office 'ribbon' has replaced the old menus and toolbars.
