Re: The Computers of Star Trek

Then again, people all over the world deliberately choose, and even insist on, artificially produced shutter noises on their cameras and camera phones. Plus they insist on these things making all sorts of other noise as well. It's sometimes damned difficult to tell whether a machine is really doing what it's expected to do otherwise.

And why should a mouse be superior to a voice interface? People thirty years back wouldn't understand why anybody would want to move a hand controller around if one can simply talk to the computer instead; it's not difficult to see people thirty years forward considering that insane, too.
