Windows 8 - a return to the stone age?

    If memory serves me right in the stone age they used stone tablets to communicate on which they chipped out pictures, (icons). The first computer back then was probably called "Inca 8". This pre-dated the Romans using wax tablets and a stylus. Which in turn predated the printing press and text. And now we're back to pictures, (icons) on a Metro tablet. And of course there was the Abacus.

    I guess chimpaneze could be taught to use icon tablets if they got a banana each time they hit the correct icon?

    It's said that one picture can tell a thousand words. But I haven't seen too many best seller novels comprised of 40 or 50 pictures ... except kiddies books and comics.

    Or a book with an index of 40 or 50 single page pictures for every chapter.

    Yet you've gone and done it again. This time, you attributed what I said to yourself.
