Glossary » slip


(psychology) an error resulting from skilled behavior being performed at a time when it shouldn’t, such as accidentally driving to the office when you intended to drive to the store. Highly-practiced behaviors become automatic and the triggers for these automatic behaviors may cause them to be performed at a time when an alternative is more appropriate.

(widgets) In the NewtonOS, a slip is a window essentially equivalent to a dialog box.
