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."

Well, you are supposed to just press the power button on the computer, like every other device in the house. It is sort of perverse that we've become so used to needing to press a GUI button to shut down the system.

But the thing is that the power button doesn't actually turn the thing on or off, Windows insists on it either putting the computer to sleep or to hibernate. On my laptop is sends the machine to sleep, and that's just not what I want when I am looking to shut the computer down.

Yes, I know you can change the functionality from the power settings, but how many Average Joes will ever find that? As such it doesn't negate the point raised in any way -- actually turning off the computer is more cumbersome than it should be.
