So my wife used her Ipod mini yesterday for the first time.
I expected resounding praise. Or complaints about lack of selection (I haven't moved over most of her music since its in FLAC or OGG). Instead there was a resounding flurry of UI complaints:
"How do I turn it off?"
"The volume kept drifting up and down as I run."
"Can't create my own playlist" (she has running-specific music)
"It's impossible to navigate through the menus"
She's coming from the Rio Karma which has a "more button" approach. But I found it startling that one of the alleged great user interfaces of all times was so strongly panned on first use. It is beautiful, though.
