Context over Consistency

10Jun08

The iPhone puts context over consistency. They didn’t put the music store icon where consistency tells you to put it. That would be on the left side. They put it where context tells you to put it. On the right side right above the iPod icon. Even the icon’s arrow points right down to the iPod. Consistency is the easy choice. Context is the thinking choice.
