I enjoy technology. I really do. But, some days, there are some design decisions that still has me thinking "Why?" Here is a few fustrations, and how I would solve them. GPS that does not include a "pause" button - Anyone who owns a GPS has experienced this frustration. You are driving a long trip, and need to make a stop because you are either A. hungry, B. thirsty, or C. need to use the bathroom. When you do that, your GPS starts going into the "recalculating" as it tries to figure out how to get back to the main highway as you are parking your car. Stopping the navigation requires pressing a few buttons, which is often a bad idea when driving. I just want to pause the unit from recalculating. If you can interface with the outside world, get your time - The days of setting your clock by +1-303-499-7111 is over. If your device interfaces with the outside world, then it should be able to set the time automatically from it, whether it be via the Internet via Network Time Protocol (NTP) (I prefer pool.ntp.org), Global Positioning Satellite (GPS), Cell Phone, Radio Broadcast Data System (RBDS) (if the station has the clock set correctly), and through the air via WWV/WWVH. Yet, despite having both a GPS compass and RBDS, I still have to set the clock manually in my car. Most people really don't bother, and their clocks slowly drift off by several minutes. Likewise, if I am updating the firmware of my MP3 player or iPod and have it hooked up to my computer, why not correct the time while you are at it? Not being able to combine Bluetooth with another audio source - A long time ago, having Bluetooth meant that you had a hand-free headset so that you can drive, answer the phone, and not get a ticket. Thanks to the Smartphone, I can also broadcast audio from my smartphone into a Bluetooth speaker. Very cool. Here is the frustrating part. I enjoy the XM radio that is included in my car (and am looking forward to the return of 40s on 4 station), and I use my phone for navigation. Can I combine the audio so that I can listen to XM music while receiving turn by turn directions through my phone? No. Sometimes, I swear that auto manufacturers are five years behind the rest of the world. The more critical my data, the less secure my password and account access is - This brings up one of my pet peeves, and it drives me up the wall. The most critical of anyone's accounts is their banking accounts, because if someone gets in there, they can clean me out, and I may not realize it until I get to the grocery store and get the "insufficient funds". Yet, my financial institutions allow only short 12-character passwords with a limit character set, and MAYBE two-factor authentication. Yet, my friend's web forum which can cause me absolutely no damage if hacked, allows a 100 character password with any sort of character sets. While brings me to another point... Better security... as long as someone else pays for it - Europe has had the chip-and-pin secure credit cards for at least a decade. When I was in Canada last year and ate at a restaurant, the waiter brought over a electronic unit where I could swipe my card, add the tip, and sign electronically, and get a receipt without my credit card leaving my possession. Yet, in the United States, if I was paying for my meal, I have to lose possession of my card by giving it to a waiter, and sign a paper receipt. The magnetic stripes are literally 1970s, and are still used because the cost of a card with a strip is cheaper than the card with a chip. Migration stalled because the merchants, banks, and credit card issues ended up arguing who should pay for the migration. It took the Target data breach to break the logjam. What are you pain points in regards to technology?
