I think the point is that sliders suck:

1. they are very hard to use - unless you have fingers as thin as a
stylus.  Especially the ones that go close to the screen edge.
2. They are impossible to use whilst walking.
4. They take too long to operate - seem to use a lot of processing as
they "hang" for a few seconds part way until the display settles.

Basicly, sliders are inappropriate for digital (on/off) values - thats
what radio buttons are for. 

And yes I would love to have the time to figure out how the opaque mess
that is e works so I can fix these HCI disasters, at least for
myself ...
