Day 138 : fingering

digital-cameras1

Conventional cameras as far back as I can remember have the shutter release button on the right side of the camera. Definitely right hand biased. If your camera had the capability to adjust the lens from wide angle to telephoto, it was done with the left hand on a single lens reflex camera.

iPhones are right biased. The awake switch is on the top right. To unlock the phone you have to sweep the indicator from right to left which is more natural with your right thumb. In Contacts the alphabet column is on the right side, easier to touch with the right. Yes, one can use the left hand/thumb to do the tasks but the right bias is apparent.

Sandy’s year long journey – going from being a right-hander to left-hander, and Kelly’s parallel trip as a left-hander doing things as a right-hander.
