Tufte on the iPhone (and interface design)

Interesting video and comments by Edward Tufte on the iPhone. A few choice quotes from the video: "The content is the interface" (referring to the iPhone's brilliant lack of "computer administrative debris" like toolbars) & "To clarify add detail ... clutter and overload are not an attribute of information, they are failures of design. If the information is in chaos, don't start throwing out information, fix the design." (I really love that last one.)
