In the do's and don'ts of interface design, one of the biggest NO-NO'es is focus-stealing. Things that poop up without the users explicit say-so are wrong, period. Apple has always been gracious about this, but that world has come to an end. When I connect my iPhone for a charge, two (2) applications starts. But not only do they start - they force themselves in front of whatever I was doing (normally some very important casual browsing). That buggers the H out of me. It is probably configurable - but the default is what gets to me. Default Apple, should be not to interrupt me - even if it is for some useless applications that I rarely use anyway, but yet you want to push on me. After some 20+ years of PC/Win-usage, the focus-stealing was the main grief that put me on a mac. I hate being interrupted by my system for some retarded reason. Even if my computer was about to go thermal nuclear, all I want is a count-down in a remote corner, preferably without any blinking or bouncing. So please, anyone who feel differently - I want to hear your arguments.
