This paper presents work in progress which aims at analyz- ing the origins of interaction problems which certain users have when interacting with new technology. Our analysis is based on device models which categorize certain classes of devices via a pre-defined set of features. We provide exam- ples which show that usability problems are partially caused by an erroneous transfer of device features to new/unknown devices.
