This is exactly why Apple products are so successful. They're very intuitive, even for the basic user. Children can pic up an iPad/iPhone and know how to get to Angry Birds and begin to play. This has little to do with a Home button, it is just that the interface/OS is so intuitive. It is going to be very hard for RIM or Android for that matter to compete with that in the tablet market.
The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.
When you take things for granted, the things you are granted, get taken.
Even a mosquito doesn't get a pat on the back until it starts to work.
Too many people miss the silver lining because they're expecting gold.
