The more complex they make the technology, the greater the risk of malfunction. K.I.S.S. applies most everywhere.

Plus if you’re the product manager which side will give you the least customer service calls?  Err on the side of false negative or false positive?


Oh wait. What did you say? Just make the product work right all the time?  Silly boy.

Probably not. I am in the computer industry and I have seen salespeople talk about a known defect (bug) and call it a feature to sell the product.
The time for action is upon us and the enemy is at our gates. Let us not allow them one more inch of advancement but instead throw them through the gates of Hell.

Gee.  Sounds like Microsoft and Excel they rolled out several years ago.  They were trying to entice the unwashed masses by making it "easy" and "intuitive"....it was a steaming POS.  The first Excel I'd had since 1989 or so that had serious bugs in it.

Clippy was way before my time with a computer, but I heard he was really annoying.

It was annoying, but way ahead of his time when you look at all the autocorrect, auto insert, and AI now being deployed.
