    With all the android masses coming in here and claiming how much they love holding down the home button to see icons, and how much more "effifient" it is than webos multitasking the Duarte interview must be bad news.

    I fully expect google inbox to be flooded with protest mail clamoring for them not to release honeycom with it's new card metaphor. But maybe not because I never believed them any way.

    PS: You can still get your hard press fix with an iphone

    The home button is efficient and easy to use.

    What is this thread besides trolling for a fight?



    If they come up with a more efficient way, and it truly is, then sure I'll give it a go.


    But the home button is pretty efficient.
    You see all the apps you've been using while not having to figure out which window is which.
    It's efficient because it takes the same timeframe as "cards" and yet you get icons instead of the open windows so you know exactly what you're going to.

    You can also go back to where you were in something, hours later, without having to leave it open and take up screen real estate.

    That's why I believe they (hp palm) need to utilize the launcher icon, tap and hold brings up last five apps icons in the notification area for 5 secs..

    Also, organization.

    Cards tend to lack that.

    Well, you can switch the order of cards on the screen.

    I guess my whole thing about stacks is the fact that it kinda just encourages leaving apps open..versus real organization.

    I would honestly not even view stacks as a feature for the phone line.

    Stacks really only makes sense on a tablet.

    In it's current iteration prob not even there... They really need to expand stacks by allowing the user to place a stack anywhere on screen (like a widget) for it to be really usefule on a tablet for organization...

    Yeah, the widget idea is definitely a good one.

    Maybe, I don't know too much about it.

    But I like having stuff update right on my main screen.

    All I am saying is that live cards and advanced gestures can't be less efficient than any other implementation that is currently availabe for "multi-tasking"
    To me the home button thing is more like a history function as opposed tabs in a browser for example.

    That said I think with Mr. Duate in charge of android user experience, I think android has a good shot at beating webos and it probably won't be long. I am not sure that whoever is in charge at palm knows what they are doing. I can't believe they got rid of mini cards to implement stacks. My opinion is they should have both and improve minicards by tiling them six on a page.
