The iPhone touch interface is just like Star Trek:TNG

I just had a thought about why the new touch screen interface on the iPhone is so enticing, alluring, appealing: it’s just like the flat, glassy, magical computer interfaces from the 24th century in Star Trek: The Next Generation (and subsequent Treks set in the same time period).

No wonder everyone is so blown away by the idea of interacting with a (pocket) computer that way. It’s familiar, yet brand new.
