Apple John Gruber illustrates the dangers of not having a clue about history: "The utter simplicity of the iOS home screen is Apple's innovation. It's the simplest, most obvious 'system' ever designed." Thanks for playing.

Try telling that to my 57yr old mum, who refuses to even swipe to the next page of her iPad. I need to put all the icons or the stuff she uses (which is basically 7 or 8 apps in total) on the first page.

Then again, my mum's probably an obscure case. She used to think the "Internet" was an application, hence I had to rename the Firefox desktop icon to "Internet" on her old XP system in order for her to identify it.
