Rant of the Day – Simple is Hard to do..

Does it amaze you at how often that we overlook the challenge of simplicity? and how easy it is to make simple tasks too complex.. Is loading an address book into a mobile phone rocket science? Is it a wonder to anyone else why is it taking so long for mobile phones manufactures to begin supporting a standard data and power interface like USB? Is there really a reason that USB drive manufactures have no problem making a $20 device that follows the standard to “look” like an external disk, and nearly every digital camera manufacturer has done the same, and yet the mobile phone manufacturers all feel like they have to invent a new connector and approach.. and make you buy and carry yet another power brick!

And simple often wins. There are many reasons for the overwhelming success of the iPod, not the least of which are the simplicity of navigating the device and the simplicity of updating the device from the desktop compared to competitive offerings.
