    The UI on my (modern) washing machine is just staggeringly dire. Has anybody gone all iPhone on this problem yet? Do consumers not care?

  2. @tomstuart buyer from Curry's told me once with a shrug: "machines with 3 buttons sell, machines with 2 or more than don't."

  7. @hondanhon @tomstuart @iamdanw 1. washing symbols. 2. This and the Internet fridge are the real stories of pervasive tech industry sexism.

    The Internet fridge is a feminist issue.

  8. @mildlydiverting @tomstuart @iamdanw Washing symbols are stupid and not everything uses them and tags are always in different places.

  9. @hondanhon @tomstuart @iamdanw They're standardised though. A row of buttons with the symbols. Press the ones on the label. Bam.

  10. @mildlydiverting @hondanhon @tomstuart @iamdanw Sexism? Other terrible Uis: digi cameras, printers, TVs, digi pianos, the digi radio we have

    @mildlydiverting @tomstuart @iamdanw so why aren't the buttons like that? Why the stupid spinny thing? Why can't I just so a spin cycle?

  13. @hondanhon @mildlydiverting @tomstuart @iamdanw Because it used to be mechanically necessary and is now standard. C/f QWERTY. (a guess)

  14. @philgyford @hondanhon @mildlydiverting @iamdanw I like the knob on my oven that controls the temperature, but not the one that sets a mode.
