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.

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?

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.
