Editorial It's conventional wisdom that computers need to be "easier to use." But do they? More reliable, yes. Easier to troubleshoot, yes. But now that so many people use computers so much, I think there's something to be said for making them less easy-to-use and less intuitive.

hmm, symphony anyone?

still, i fully agree with the troublesome interaction above.

hmm, i recall a program called haystack that some MIT people was working on.

the main problem is, like i think the article pointed out, that the computer isnt buildt by one company or person, but by many.

still: with the new destop search stuff that apple and others have introduced lately, your example about searching may be a bit flawed...
