It's easy to read an article like this one - which notes that the vast majority of people don't know that ctrl/command-F executes a search - and chuckle about our superiority. What it should do is makes us sit back and think, because it's clear that the "simple" UI's that are presented to people aren't as simple as we think they are. There's a reason that the touch interface pioneered by Apple with the iPod, iPhone, and iPad has caught on so well - it finally operates the way most people want a device to operate. There's a lesson in there somewhere.
