So, why do we need that volume slider everywhere?
Does anyone ever use it? I know I don’t. The iPhone has actual physical buttons for controlling the volume. When I take a quick glance at my iPhone to check on the music, I am never interested in what volume I’m playing at. I want to know the progress of the current track, and how many tracks are in the current album/playlist.
That progress bar at the top there? That’s what I want. And the only way to find it is in the detailed view in the iPod app. Why can’t I have it in place of the ubiquitous yet useless volume slider?
Because a lot of people at concerts have a tendency to act like idiots. And most of them get way too drunk. And it only takes a few assholes to ruin much of the experience for many.
But when the band is Porcupine Tree, much is forgotten and forgiven.
