Edward Tufte has recently posted some critical comments about the iPhone interface. instead of the "cartoony", "Powerpoint slide", "strong color", "zebra stripe" stock market application, he proposes a solution that is solely motivated by the high-resolution screen. his alternative interface shows "6 graphics that show 14,000 numbers worth of data accurate to 2 significant digits, & in the traditional table, 24 numbers, accurate to 5 significant digits."
in addition, he also compares 2 different weather application interfaces, complementing the "thin" but beautiful weather data list with a dynamic weather map & more detailed forecasts.
however, not everyone in the blogosphere seems to agree. do you?
