Take Your Minuets Out of My iPad!

I just had the most amazing musical experience!  I found the "sounds" button on my iPad and decided to try all the options:  One by one I went down the list:  Aha!  "Minuet!"

It was in 4/4 time -  I kid you not.

"Typewriters:"  This one was a minuet, in fact the famous one in G by Bach that everyone plays like, well, like a typewriter.

What qualifications did the person have who made these decisions for Apple?
At whom is that person laughing?
At whom are you laughing?

Or crying...

I ran this past a computer professional who maintained that it is entirely possible that the decisions were made by people who didn't have a clue.  What do you think?
