Where is that difference?

>From the users point of view it should be quite similar:
from the tutorials:
 io_service io;

 deadline_timer t(io, boost::posix_time::seconds(5));

from my phantasy:
 joystick joy(io, "stickname");
 joy.async_axis( boost::bind(handle_axis, joy, placeholders::error ));
 joy.async_button( boost::bind(handle_button, joy,
placeholders::joystick::button_id, placeholders::error ));

kind regards
