Proof positive of the Mac’s superior usability design


A short step from blocks to OSX

I wasn’t even awake when my fifteen-month old son Harry walked into our bedroom, booted up our iMac, loaded a word processing program and started typing.

I’m still trying to figure out how this might have happened. In the interests of science I saved his written output, which I reproduce verbatim:

CVV 5
B vmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm1`AAAAQ 1222222222kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk z N

It’s formally similar to Ezra Pound’s late work… but I can’t shake the fear that he’s one more modern kid whose technical know-how outstrips his communication skills.
