Some of my colleagues were struck by a sentence in this old Newsweek article about Microsoft's advertising campaign from last year. The sentence wasn't about the ad campaign, though. It was about Windows 7:
The user interface has a slick new feature, a "taskbar" at the bottom that shows what apps you have open. The new system is due out later this year.
Wow, Windows 7 has a "taskbar". If only we had thought of that sooner.
