My mom still expects her computer to blow up with a wrong key press/click ...

Where as my Dad simply clicks on everything, downloading every tool bar ever created because he things nothing can ever go wrong ...

If something does go wrong its because the computer is "out of memory". So he deletes random word files he has written, which is bad for him, but better than when he used to delete files from the windows folder "because he wasn't using them".

So in a strange way, my Mom is kind of right. I retract my criticism.

So while I may critisism Microsoft and Apple for some things that Dumb down the interface, I'm never talking about things that make them more bullet proof for my parents.
