Basic summary: companies finally realize the evil molded plastic theft-proof containers cause problems when people try to open them.

Corporate wow moment: Baby boomers are getting old! Can't open the damn things!

Reflection: Accessibility and usability and even mobile design are the same thing-- if you make your site/product easier for the mobility-impaired / deaf / blind / ESL to use, you also make it easier for the clumsy / lazy / confused / multi-tasking / blackberry-snared to use.
