Caveat emptor: I know the ramifications...

I had an industrial design prof once say that if technology can't adapt to us and we have to adapt to technology, then we've lost the whole reason for the industrial revolution which was to make our lives easier. So I refuse to spend much effort interfacing with things on what I feel are not my terms (extremely subjective). This is why I do not have a digital SLR and prefer to stick with my old Nikon FM3a. The interface for me is intuitive and beautifully simple, giving me what I need to make an image without clutter or sensory overload.

OTOH, I put up with it in my radios because there are measurable size and performance improvements with a modern radio over much more simple radios 20 years ago. So sometimes there aren't realistic options. I do try and tailor interfaces on things to be as simple as possible in those cases.

I've long ago acknowledged that I am a neo-luddite despite being in some small part of the reason for the complexity in our world.
HUH!??? from a IT guy...

Yank that darn thing out!!!!

You shouldn’t have any problems unless you are running Windows 95 or Me, or 2000. XP, Vista and 7 should be able to handle it just fine

Well, I can tell you with storage media, you should probably "Safely Remove" if you've been writing to it. If you've been simply reading it, no harm at all.

What happens is a device driver may or may not have flushed to the actual device. "Safe" removal ensures that the flush happens and is closed.

This is especially true in Linux. Something like a mouse that has nothing to write, who cares?

Now I don't think it is much of an issue at all anymore but if some of you are using older OS or something that you haven't updated, you should watch.

It is easy for me to remember. What is hard for me is to actually not explicitly mount drives and unmount them. But that is just because I prefer good old fashioned primitive environments.
