|"The Macintosh uses an experimental pointing device called a 'mouse.'
There is no evidence that people want to use these things. What
businessman knows about point sizes on typefaces or the value of
variable point sizes ? Who out there in the general marketplace even
knows what a 'font' is?
The whole concept and attitude towards icons and hieroglyphs is actually counterrevolutionary — it's a language that is hardly 'user friendly'. This type of machine was developed by hardware hackers working out of Xerox's Palo Alto Research Center. It has yet to find popular success. There seems to be some mysterious user resistance to this type of machine."
