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.

And since when is iOS home screen is simple? It's much more complex as a whole, than any other platform.

Icons that change(and some don't - calendar vs weather) and the notification bubbles are not simple.
