i hate apple contd 

if a user does not know how to see their settings and there are no discernible labels, how would they know that tapping the bottom right corner of their trackpad means right/secondary click. why do we even need to translate it to mean "click" if nothing is CLICKING. my user doesn't even know what a trackpad is. gah. i hate apple's design.

tl;dr if you don't know how to use apple products please don't just give them to old folx to figure out how to fend for themselves.

me: oh no

Ex-Arm. What the hell is this? Who thought they could air this? The first episode almost put me to sleep.
