How many times has your touch screen frustrated you? Now Navy going back to mechanical

After a US #Navy destroyer collided with another ship and many died and were injured, Navy ditching #touchscreens for ship steering and going back to mechanical.

As I’ve said many times while I was at IBM and since, there are some things computers can’t do well.

Can you imagine dragging your fingers around on a touch screen to steer a ship the size and speed of a destroyer?

The inaccuracy of touch on a monitor, especially during high stress situations, just doesn’t inspire confidence.
