Simple is hard, over-thinking is easy.Simple is useable, complex is not. Simple is elegant, elaborate is gaudy. Simple is refined, complicated is naive. Items that appear to be simple in design and function, in most cases have been labored over more than an item that has all the bells and whistles. They're not trying to be all things to everybody, they need to do one thing well for for as many people as possible. This is no easy task. Simple inspires me to explore the many options and subtract that which is not needed. It forces me keep the user in mind and make their life as simple as possible. Simple is hard, useable, elegant, refined, and makes our lives easier by minimizing frustration.
