When did it become common to put the minimum information needed in instruction manuals.  I remember years ago when I would buy some new piece of electronic the instruction manual would include how to set it up and than information on what you could do with said piece of equipment.  Nowdays you barely get enough information on how to set up your new item.  As little information as they can get away with giving.

And don't say you can go online to get all information you need.  I shouldn't have to go online to get what I need from buying something new.

And I'm looking at you Logitech Revue....

And as amazing as it is for companies to understand, there are still people out there who don't have regular access to the internet.

Instructions should be thorough without being overwhelming or too technical.
