Andy Ihnatko, personal tech writer for the Chicago Sun-Times, gave the keynote address Wednesday at the MacTech conference in Los Angeles. He spoke about various features of the upcoming new version of Mac OS X, Lion, including how Apple is making it to be similar to Walt Disney’s philosophy of the experiences Guests have at Disney theme parks.
“Disney wanted to make sure park visitors didn’t have a bad time when they showed up to the parks, so instead, he went over the line and didn’t give them permission to have a bad time. In the same way, Apple is locking away and removing any parts of the computer that might cause problems in any way. Traditional users might be disappointed to lose that control, but users in general appreciate just not having to worry about settings that seem to only harm them when wrong.”
That’s an interesting insight and explains why I enjoy being at Disney parks as well as using Apple devices like the MacBook, IPhone and iPad.
