Humans thrive on visual stimuli, and interaction. We don’t want to hear about the latest tablet, or even read an article about it. We want to see it for ourselves.
More than that, we want to experience it for ourselves. We want to press all the buttons, test out the apps, and personalize every feature. Which experience teaches you more about the tablet—your conversation with someone who told you about it? Or the time you tried it for yourself? The latter, undoubtedly. Our strongest memories are created in the moments where we are actively participating. Humans are active learners by nature.
