->''You would think that the marriage of biology and machinery would make it possible to do those things without lifting a finger. But instead, we see a drone amble over to a pylon, and do precisely that -- lift a finger. It presses a single button, then wanders off to push another button. So much for Borg efficiency.''

* WesternAnimation/{{WALL-E}} does this when he's trying to stop his runaway escape pod, especially slamming the BigRedButton. Justified because WALL-E does not have a clue about what he's doing, and is clearly just smacking the panel at random hoping one thing or another will save him. Played straight for the robots on the ship: despite in some cases being literally built into the walls, they still type on control panels.

* Rommie on Series/{{Andromeda}}, which can be maddening since Rommie ''is'' the ship. The depiction of the levels of interconnectivity has varied at different times, and she has always been depicted as a different "consciousness" than the main computer so it may be justified. However you might still expect that an android specifically designed (by Harper) for the ship should be able to connect up in other ways. On the other hand, android Rommie may ''prefer'' to act in a more human manner. On at least one occasion android Rommie got into an argument with hologram-Rommie (which generally acted more "human" for interaction with the crew) and Andromeda the ship (which was generally the most computer-like of her incarnations), with Rommie deciding to act like a human would in the situation they were in, versus the hesitancy of hologram-Rommie, versus the full-blown "that isn't logical" of Andromeda. It wouldn't be out of character for her to refuse to use connections that the rest of the crew couldn't.

* Something similar in the ''GhostInTheShell'' film: There are at least two scenes in which we see cybernetically-enhanced individuals extend their fingers into some highly dexterous tentacle-things which they then use to type on keyboards. While it is established that people in the [=GitS=] 'verse can connect their minds directly, doing it that way opens up the user to mind-hacking.
