I spotted this notice on the new “digital display“ at the lift lobby on the ground floor of my apartment block. Residents were warned not to touch it.

Not a touchscreen?

Touchscreens are so common as to be the norm. This screen is at eye to shoulder height and begs to be touched. If we are not supposed to interact with the screen, a conventional noticeboard might have made more sense.

Given the environment, the risk for damage to this screen is high. The cost of this initiative not known even though residents pay for it via monthly dues. The return on this investment is also questionable. Innovation is not doing the same thing differently and at greater cost.

Now, am I being curmudgeonly or are the authorities just out of touch?
