The thing is, what you call "control" is my idea of user friendliness. I'm willing to pay more for convenience. I have no interest in tinkering with computers. You could say the landscape guy "controls" my yard; I call it hiring out to do something I don't care to waste my time with. As long as I can do what I want on an iPad or any other tablet, and it's easy to use, that's the product that gets my money.
