Weekend read: The brilliant user interface of regular TVs

Family watching television

My recommended read for this weekend is this Wired article by Kyle Vanhemert on what Netflix can learn from the user interface of linear TV. It makes some great points, and it’s great to read someone celebrating older user interfaces instead of another article praising social integration and flat design!
