From the Wireless 2000 show in New Orleans:

"When [Capellas] said that what he was showing was a Windows CE device, I said to myself, who cares?" Zander said. "I never ask about operating system or instruction set. ... A [device] should just work. ... I never had to read an operating manual for my Palm VII."

Also recommend Don Norman's latest book, "the Invisible Computer"--high-tech products should just work. (see http://www.jnd.org/ for the latest on Don Norman).
