New York Times tech columnist David Pogue riffs on gratuitously complex design bloopers.
Perhaps New York Times tech writer David Pogue looked into his crystal ball in 2006 when he gave this prescient TED Talk on the virtues of simplicity. The iPod, by then a great success, had provided a glimpse of tech’s future as designers moved away from gratuitous features to give users what they really want: ease of use. Although this witty, musical presentation is somewhat dated today, getAbstract deems it still relevant and worth a listen.
In this summary, you will learn
- What caused the “technical overload crisis,”
- Why “simplicity sells” and
- How to create a simpler, more enjoyable user experience.
