    2. 2. “A user forced to use something they don't like because of how it looks or feels will be unhappy to some degree…” “Craft is about details. The rounded corners and smooth edges. Making sure the pixels line up and nothing is out of place. Getting the palettes just right so there is no flashing. Precision is what creates energy and movement in a design. Users may not notice in a conscious way, but they will feel the difference between getting the details right and having bits out of place.” Scott Berkun, UI That Kills: Swords, Craft, and User Interfaces
