Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

The computing world changed a lot with the advent of the first iPhone in 2007. Until that time, the dominant method of computing was using, well, computers. Desktops, laptops, Mac OS X, Windows. That’s what it meant to interact with technology, especially anything on the internet. Applications, installers, frameworks, filesystems, drivers, updates, antivirus programs. Complexity was an arguably unavoidable consequence of the gradual evolution of computers as they morphed from simple word processing platforms to multimedia / gaming / internet do-everything machines.
