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.

Most people don't seem to know Dr. Pepper in The Netherlands, but I see it at most supermarkets and I like it. But as most people don't know it I often have to explain what it is when I drink some.

I've just grabbed some mineral water with badges, ehm I mean bubbles.

The Dr Pepper we used to get (before Coca Cola started producing it in the UK) was actually imported from the Netherlands and bottled in my home town. Pretty crazy that it's not popular there!

Yeah, those Dutch are nuts!

When I order a drink I often go for 7UP and the waitress looks confused at me. Ah, you mean Sprite!

So last time I ordered a Sprite, to prevent this confusing, but it didn't help. Ah, you mean 7UP!

Not sure what happens if I order Dr. Pepper.
