context: client's office full of regular 'ol G4 and G5 macs, nothing special.
interactive designer: "so, here is how the layout and navigation will work on the touchscreen displays. we made this for your review."
me: [i put the CD into a G4 with a regular mac display.]
client: [amused look on her face.]
interactive designer: "so, during the opening, these buttons layout the menus..." [screen defaults to full screen mode, animated navigation elements appear on mac display]
client: [quickly grabs her mac monitor with both hands and rotates it 90 degrees, this makes since, because the interactive layout is for 16:9 vertical. HOWEVER, she then starts tapping the buttons that have appeared on her mac display] "hmmmm... i can't get these to work, did the interactive crash?
interactive designer: "uhmm... no, you have to use the mouse."
client: "but i thought this was for touchscreen"
interactive designer: "right, but... the interactive program doesn't turn your monitor into a touchscreen, you have to buy a touchscreen monitor for that kind of interactivity"
me: [snorting profusely as i contain my laughter]
