M364 Block 1, Unit 3, Activity 4

I now want you to draw a design for an electronic calendar system that is radically different to the outline sketch in Figure 6.1. [which shows a page and book model] You only need to draw a single sketch in order to illustrate your design. Try asking yourself questions such as: how could a mobile telephone, with a small sceen, be used to access an electronic calendar? What are the characteristics of a magnifying glass, and how might these characteristics be of benefit when designing an electronic calendar?

An iFriend tells me that this is in fact exactly how iPhone apps work, so no points for originality, but at least I got it right.

I may have to put up the desktop/mouse version which *is* more original - and may be more controversial.
