World-readable

"When I was a kid, we didn't have no new fangled color phones. We carried our phones around like car batteries with shoulder straps. My pappa always said, 'use your legs not your back when you pick up your cell phone!' Why, I used'a tow my cell phone around with the silver Volvo! Dropped my gas milage by 3 miles a gallon. And we liked it that way!"

Having rejected DOS, we're paranoid about anything that isn't
"user-friendly," that requires some adjustment on our part and a
commitment to meet the technology halfway. It's as if Henry Ford rigged
a bridle and set of leather reins to his Model T instead of a steering
wheel and clutch, and to this day we were still driving our cars the way
a 19th century groomsman would handle a horse and buggy.
