I recently found an interesting film about industrial design. It talks about how we have interacted with objects over the years and how it may change within the future as we draw away from archetypes. The documentry is interesting and worth a look if your interested in interaction.

Although both programs come from the same family neither follow a pattern I can easily understand. Everytime I have opened the software a new menu always seems to come up instead of the same menu I am use to.
This documentry made me think about the objects I use everyday in my life. Most seem seamless, such as my bag and wallet.
