Traditional computer users “stick shifters”; iPad users “Automatic” drivers??? http://bit.ly/b7rqMs Interesting conceptualizing and worth the read.
The iPad experience is like driving the computing experience without the manual hassle. You don’t have to know how to install the engine to start out (install an OS), nor deal with (and worry endlessly about) the workings. In general, you just don’t need to worry about all of the abstractions any more. The notion of files. And, don’t get me started on viruses.
Do you drive a stick shift (aka Manual Transmission for much of the English speaking world that’s not American!)?
