Yeah i stopped reading when he started Comparing everything to apple. Not all companies follows apples UI or their controls, just how it is. I seriously doubt he even read the manual. He picked it up and expected it to control and respond like an ipod; which it isn't.
Yes there is growing pains and a learning curve to NOT try to use muscle memory learned from ipods when holding the x5 but if you seriously give it a chance the controls aren't as un-intuitive as he puts it. It's just different.
