    This is not (entirely) in defense of the hamburger.

    The amount of *%#$s I give depends largely on the project. In other words: Know your audience.

    On many projects, I am willing to take the "risk" that some users might not recognize this control. I am of the opinion that the number of people who don't recognize it will only go down as it gains ubiquity. Seems inevitable. We the design community are establishing a new convention, for better or worse.

    We have a 12-year-old at home. Whenever I feel unsure about something I am working on, I hand her my phone. It's amazing to see how immediately kids understand even the most complex (and, sometimes, stupid and seemingly unusable) interfaces.

      In my experience, my five year old can figure out interfaces more easily than most fifty year olds.

      Your 12 year old is pretty much Steve Jobs.
