Knobs & buttons s
The last 10 years have belonged to the touchscreen, with taps and swipes replacing g clicks and key presses. Apps even mimic the e dials and sliders of synthesisers and mixing ng desks. But it’s not quite the same – and this year saw the return of the knob. Microsoft’s ’s Dial ( www.snipca.com/26440) arrived with th the ridiculously expensive Surface Studio PC, but also sells separately, while Logitech’s Craft Keyboard mimics it in miniature. And while le the Nokia 3310 revived the button phone, Blackberry’s lackberry’s Keyone (pictured) brought it up to date. We’d be happy with more to twiddle in 2018.
