    This is Howard at his worst. What a fucking asshole.
    And he wonders why people criticize him on twitter.

    I was trying to think what word Gary would use instead of "interface".

    Most geeks use the term GUI (pronounced GOOEY rhymes with Booey!) as in Graphical user interface!

    On Gary's tech show he was talking about the interface on a Sonos system.. Howard was saying he'd never use that word normally. The whole thing was just nick-picking to fill time I guess.

    A 'man' who needs professional help to operate his idiot-proof iPhone might not be a position to cast stones.

    Howard is married to a former English major so he holds people to a higher standard, and Gary is an idiot who didn't know that "viscous" wasn't the correct spelling of vicious - it does sound like easy filler for the 12 hours of weekly show time.

    I can't wait until he goes off the air and no one listens to his stupid opinion.

    i'm a sales manager for a company that mfg's touch screens, resistive and capacitive like the iphone uses...interface is widely regarded as the common name for both the hardware and software for all technologies...from the elastomer/rubber keypads on remote controls to the membrane switches on appliances, to touch products on consumer electronics
