The eye's have it.

These inventors ignored the most natural of all pointers- our eyes!  Combine that with head movement for zooming and panning. 

Yikes, makes me dizzy thinking about a cursor flying around as fast as my eyes can move, but hey, they can fix that in development, right!

It isn't really that you have to do it that is the problem.  I like learning new things, in good order.  The problem is that you have to do it so often.  If I have to spend a week on the learning curve, I would like to go a couple of months working efficiently.  The real problem is that this week you have to learn this change, next week you have to learn a different one.  It is hard to be really effective when you are never off the learning curve.  This situation is taken from annoying to explosive by managments who have to have everything yesterday.  You can't keep up at peak efficiency.  Being on the learning curve all the time just makes it three times worse.

@SparkyWatt: Changing work patterns and work habits is the biggest obstacle to any new technology implementation. It's up to the providers of these new devices to make it somewhat intuitive to operate with tried-and-true design and engineering tools otherwise any added utility is for naught.
