Steven Johnson : "In the case of OS X,

I think what has happened is the convergence of three things: a product designed with such attention to detail that the drop-shadows do grow and shrink as you move the windows around; an audience that has so fetishized the product that the shadows actually seem like a big deal to them; and a web of communication that enables people to share their excitement with thousands of other people before that excitement wears off. In some ways, that mix echoes the components that went into other epochal cultural events, and in some ways, it represents an entirely new breed." via slashdot
