What has become of the "just open the package and use it, learn as you go, it's all intuitive and self explanatory" Apple? ... now it's a "read the manual and google and then youtube and then read news websites about how to use it and then share tips with friends and write a blog post about how to use it so others can learn how to use it too" ...
