They don't understand what they're doing. And they don't have any reason to understand it, because in most cases they get what they want.
It's not the 1990s, and you no longer need to know what an IRQ is or what an EMM is for to write a letter on a PC. How is opening the computers up to people who wouldn't be able to understand how they work a bad thing? So what if Grandpa has no idea what a URL is if we can use the technology to make it so that he doesn't have to know?
Come on, you're taking it to the opposite extreme now. And I said "URL" to be clear but I don't mind if they just say "address".
The "bad" thing IMHO, is the increasing divide between pro and noobs. These features let noobs do some stuff, but they make them stay like that. Which means they will need hand-holding all the time. Constantly need help to figure out where they put their stuff, opening viruses in emails, victims of fishing, etc.
Now, antivirus/antimalware are good for them. It's an example of something that helps them all the time in something they will never be able to handle themselves.
On the other hand, when they make stuff that helps them to access a recent document, it doesn't make them realise the underlying lack of awareness of the file location and it won't help them when the file is 2 weeks old. They're only going to get dumber.
I'm a strong supporter of simplification. Knowing where you save a file and that a website has an address, it's not /that/ hard.
