Shows how our perceptions of what's needed to convey the information keep compacting and contracting, down to the essentials. Also, it gets rid of a lot of tedious motion tracking on tiny hard to read device screens:-)
I've liked that development, too. It was pretty good in that dumb Liam Neeson on a plane movie. I think we've all sort of accepted dumb technology screens in movies with an eye roll and a free pass, but it's nice to move away from that.
