Apple "Never mind the fact that the iPod turned the entire music industry on its head. Never mind the fact that most successful notebooks today resemble designs first popularized by Apple. Never mind the fact that the blueprint of the modern day smartphone remains the original iPhone. Never mind the fact that competitors are scrambling wildly to copy the success and design of the iPad. Forget all of these things, because when it comes to Apple, the 'what have you done for me lately?' mentality reigns supreme."

Totally agree.

It took me absolutely ages just to figure out how to shut down my god damned PC in Windows 8.

It's now a game I play with guests on my media PC. I see how long it takes each of them to figure it out. Most just give up.

In case you're wondering, you have to hover you mouse over the right side of the screen, click a totally inappropriate cog icon (which is the universal icon for settings), and then find the icon amongst five other down the bottom of the side bar.

And this is just one of many such bizarre UI decisions in Win8. It really seems like they came up with this stuff while under the influence.
