    I find myself double spacing while typing on my laptop and then wondering why there aren't any periods. Anyone else use their iPhone so much that they start treating everything like it should behave in the same manner?

    I find my self tapping on screens of things. Used the girlfreinds iPod the other day, and tapped away at the screen trying to figure out why nothing was happening. I've done it to her cellphone, too.

    I had to laugh at myself the other day using my Navigon GPS. I was trying to flick the map view. It does have a touch screen but doesn't flick. :D

    I've done that, but then I have also attempted to unlock the house front door with my car's key fob remote. It didn't work either LOL

    Being a touchscreen developer, I raised my kids on touchscreen computers from the time they were one year old.

    Yep, they would often tap on the normal monitors of school computers, out of habit.

    Now if cars were only like that, you crash it and then put it in your garage and it restores to a new car! :D

    I actually find it iritating when other touch screen devices don't have the iPhone luke gestures. It's kustthat the iPhone gestures seem so natural so it's like why shouldn't they be on touch screen devices.

    I know what you mean. I have noticed that the user interface of my GPS is VERY slow. I never noticed it before I got the iPhone.

    embarassingly I was Reading a magazine a couple of weeks back and there was a small pic and I found myself trying to "pinch out" the pic to make it bigger!
    My missus still hasn't stopped laughing as she caught me doing it

    D'oh!!

    (in my defence I was very tired)

    I constantly find myself tapping my Tablet's screen, rather than using the pen...the screen isn't conductive so nothing happens. It's kind of embarrassing :(

    Bwahaha that's terrible

    I think this wins the thread right here. We all tend to simulate iPhone gestures on electronics but a MAGAZINE? Hahaha that's great. Sounds like something I'd do though. :rolleyes:

    As I said - in my defense I was tired! (I also use my iPhone a LOT)

    BTW Nincompoop is my favourite word of all time. I grab every opportunity to use it - even if against myself.
