“Apple is doing something rather daring with their new iPhone OS. They are essentially omitting features that people once took for granted in a typical computer. And one of the biggest things they’ve omitted is the visual file system [...] The end result is that regular folks are happier with their computers and that geeks are pissed that Apple has “dumbed down” the computer. [...] I’m hoping that devices like the iPad and iPhone contribute to the demise of the visual file system. I think its death in consumer devices will lower the bar for folks who just want to do stuff and get the computer out of the way.”<br /> <br /> I couldn’t agree more.
