Take a giant step forward, take two baby steps back

Telling me, "You may continue to use your computer during the update," then demanding that i quit iTunes: not exactly a friendly conversation.

Talk about the weather?

Dear Car -- 

I like you, I really like you -- more than any other car I've known. You're filled with surprises, and awesome and fun.

But when I turn on the engine and you show me a snowflake icon on the indicator panel, it doesn't make me think you want to talk about the weather: it looks like you're alerting me that the engine is cold and broken, and crying for help.

Please, let's be clear about the differences between a friendly conversation and a screaming emergency, okay?

Thank you.

-- Your human.
