And it's difficult to notice and register that that is wrong. Particularly when the options USB sticks usually give are worthless or wrong. My iPod Touch says "Camera connected" when I plug it in, and gives me options for: * Microsoft Office Document Scanning * Microsoft Office Publisher * Microsoft Office Publisher * Microsoft Office Word * Microsoft Scanner and Camera Wizard * Photoshop * Photoshop No, I didn't make any mistakes with that list. So I'm probably not going to notice one other slightly strange option.
