Do We Have It Backwards?

Being a technologist I have the following principal and believe:

One needs to give a great deal of effort into the development of a technology, if one wants to ensure a good, effortless, intuitive interface for the end-user.

So when they say a technology is a metaphor for a real life process, I expect a lot from this technology. Case in point, the Mac OS interface.
