But eventually you got used to driving and started listening to songs or talking to people and maybe you must have started driving with one hand, now, right?

As human beings, we get used to “the way things are” really fast. But for designers, the way things are is an opportunity … Could things be better? How? In this talk the man behind the iPod and the Nest thermostat shares some of his tips for noticing — and driving — change.
