Seriously, there is one fantastic quote here from Steve Jobs that he replied to someone who *dared* to criticize him:

what have you done that's so great? Do you create anything, or just criticize others work and belittle their motivations?

What a complete asshole who thinks he's so much better than everyone else.

So do you create anything either? Sounds like it just stung because most people don't.

Oh dear lord - a busload / metro train full of people waving their arms around like airport flagmen having grand-mal seizures.
And you thought loud cell-phone conversations were annoying.

*THWACK!* *Biff* *Poink*!

It'd be like an episode of the 300 Stooges. Can't wait.

I INSIST that my computing experience involve maintaining enough resources to staff an IT department, constant attacks from malware and viruses, applications that won't behave for more than a few minutes, flash-crashworthy ads and pop-unders, and a large group of condescending nerds telling me how stupid I am because after 25 years-plus of unchanged UI practices - I'm the one that's behind the times - not the computer. "curated computing"? How about - "it doesn't suck?" I would like that new computer - the flat one. You mean the one that doesn't suck? Yes please.
