OK, now I'm confused. What part of this don't you understand? I've stated why I can see that there may be another viewpoint - which, when you look at Apple's historic view of its interfaces, is something that I understand and, for good technical reasons, have some sympathy for. If it were Microsoft, I'd be saying the same thing. Ditto Dell, IBM, HP .. should I go on?
I'm not saying that I agree with it, just that I understand how it might have been missed given the company's priorities. I have made no comment defending Apple's implementation at all.
My opinions are mine - not yours. If you wish me to state or clarify them, then by all means feel free to ask, but rushing to judge just to make some silly point is actually deeply offensive.
Stopping now as I am ..... quite miffed ....
