High-tech products are supposed to make everyday life easier and more productive. However, we need to assess if this is really the case. Do bloated software and unwieldy hardware improve our lives or increase our stress levels? In this practical view of usability, we will first discuss poor software and hardware designs and how they affect the consumer and the businesses selling those products. Then we will explore how companies can realistically create easier-to-use products through interaction design. It is not necessary to abandon your current process. With some minor modifications, you can drastically improve the usability of your products. These modifications can be made within the technical, financial, and time constraints of your company.
