I was on the train today watching all of the commuters use their entertainment devices.
The man sitting next to me played air hockey on his iphone (4).
I contemplated the balance between optimal aesthetics and efficiency.
What would things look like if there were no such thing as beauty?
If I were more interested in my appearance would I have fashionable electronics?
If I had fashionable electronics with distracting games would I ever have asked these questions, or would I have been too distracted to think?
