The Onion on Apple's design philosophy

Funny! This is basically a video version of an online joke press release mocking Apple I remember reading in the early 90s. The input device the parody mentioned was even pretty much the same: a giant wheel instead of a keyboard, although it was supposed to be mechanical, not touch sensitive of course.

That earlier version of course mocked the Apple fads of the time: the "computer mouse" and "icon", which were supposedly going to render the command line interface obsolete, and of course, the "Newton", which would go on to be a hit because people were willing to put up with a goofy interface just for the convenience of having a sort of tiny-computer-thingy you could put in your pocket...NOT!
