Andreas Pfeiffer on Features

In eWeek, Andreas Pfeiffer writes about the problem of overemphasis on features rather than usability. Key grafs:

"More features isn't better, it's worse. Feature overload is becoming a real issue."

"Forget about the killer feature. Welcome to the age of the killer user experience. When technology achieves something desirable without being in your face, when it knows how to integrate itself into your wishes and desires without distracting from them, that's when technology lives up to its potential."
Via Steve Johnson.
