Okay, onto somewhat more (but barely) acceptable explanations: Crusher is for showcasing your content. And specifically with digital stuff, content structure is evolving a vertical nature. This differs from the way we consumed stuff in the past which has typically been a left/right fashion, as with paging through a book or newspaper, spooling through audio/video cassette reels, shopping isles of furniture and groceries, etc. The way we consume a lot of that stuff today is digitally where the sheer amount of information is best and most efficiently handled vertically. How annoying is it to be confronted by a horizontal scroll bar when browsing? Just as we’ve left the bushes, we can leave the old world metaphors behind. A web page with previous/next pagination controls no longer has a real need to be analogous to a physical book. “VCR controls” will make sense to younger generations just as much as a rotary telephone dial does to us today.
