What happened to the one click options for making Ubuntu into a USB installer? Whats with the really terrible instructions on how to make a USB installer on Mac? Why are they making things more difficult when this should be almost automatic by now. This doesn't increase users, it deters users away from using Ubuntu.

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, see the FAQ.
The "dd" way is actually quite easy but therein lies the danger. One false move and you hose your entire system. So use that method in the absence of a better one but do be careful. Really careful. No, I mean REALLY careful.
