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.

My 7 year old can do it also. And as the same method works on Android, the skill is now transferable.

7 y/o are the worst examples. They are not afraid to experiment and will understand modern technology faster than you can blink.

If a 7 year old can learn, what's stopping you?

Which skill? The moving of icons and creating of folders or stealing your dad's games and ruining your game progress? :-p

If Apple doesn't come up with a way to share an iPad with multiple users, which I'm sure happens a lot within families, I'll have to buy my son one.

Which is, most likely, why they haven't implemented multi-user features in iOS. ;)

I wish Google had allowed the master account to control the installed apps on other accounts, rather than the "you can reinstall any app almost instantly - but have to buy paid apps again." model. It's nice that apps you reinstall on a second account install in seconds with no download, but the fact you must repurchase apps for the same device (as far as I can see) just to use it on another account is horrible and money grabbing of them! I've yet to try signing up with the same Gmail account - maybe that works?!

Very sorry but Apple are not aiming their devices at people too poor to buy one each, that's what Android is for.
