I’m often saddened by the infantilising effect of high technology on adults. From being in control of their world, they’re thrust back to a childish, mediaeval world in which gremlins appear to torment them and disappear at will and against which magic, spells, and the local witch doctor are their only refuges.
With the iPhone OS as incarnated in the iPad, Apple proposes to do something about this, and I mean really do something about it instead of just talking about doing something about it, and the world is going mental.
I love this. I totally agree that a computing device doesn’t have to have every high-tech bell and whistle in order to do “real work”. Just read the rest of the article linked above; Fraser Speirs wrote a great feisty post. Go now!
