Never underestimate the power of human stupidity. I worked in 
consumer electronics retailing in the early 1970's  (it was called 
"Hi-Fi" in those days). It didn't matter how much effort the 
manufacturer had clearly put into making products simple and 
intuitive, >50% of buyers still couldn't figure out how to use them 
without excruciatingly painful (to me) personal tuition.
