27. "User friendly"...
...devices will be the death of humanity.

I'm tired of cars that shift gears for me, help me steer, and dim my lights when it thinks they should be dimmed.

I'm tired of computers that try and hide files, wont let me modify system configurations without jumping through hoops, wont let me boot up DOS, or, god forbid, access my Windows folder without a warning that basically says "you're probably an idiot, dont touch this".

I dont want guns that check my finger prints, test my DNA, and ask for a urine sample before enabling the trigger. I dont need a gun with a 15 pound trigger pull and a magazine safety to keep me from shooting myself in the foot. I dont want a rifle to ask me how I'm feeling, and if I'm sure I want to fire before it lets the hammer fall.

Things are supposed to be complicated, it discourages idiots from touching them.

If you're to dumb to take the time to work something properly, then you shouldn't touch it in the first place.
