I remember when I anxiously awaitied the new models of PC and microprocessor anticipating a signficant and useful speed improvement.

Boo-hoo

I can't see this book being much use anyway. What's so difficult about finger to icon, icon opens magical app, use app?

I'd rather see a book called "French are dummies and loving spitting dummies".

*thumbs up*

Would translate more as a "Quick Start" guide

More literal, maybe, but that translation lacks context. ;-)

I'd just like to thank El Reg...

...for the picture of the Frenchman that accompanies this story on the homepage. The picture provides much needed context to this complex technical story
