Graphics, User Interfaces Now this is an interesting article, written by Lukas Mathis. He makes the interesting case that the gesture-based interface, as seen on the iPad and many modern smartphones, is actually more akin to the command line interface than the graphical one. He also offers a number of solutions for that pesky problem of gestures being anything but discoverable.

I miss Palm's original Graffiti alphabet; high speed input, low rate of error in recognition.. fantastic. I've yet to see a alphabetic gesture input as accurate outside of an onscreen keyboard (lower speed, low rate of error in recognition).
