The Downside of Benefits

Downside of Benefits

That’s not a benefit.

If it takes more time than you’re trying to save to figure it out, that’s not a benefit.
If its explanation distracts from accomplishing something, that’s not a benefit.
If it gets an upgrade for the sake of modernity but loses usability, that’s not a benefit.

A fridge with a menu of blue lights instead of a “water-ice” slider doesn’t help anyone.
A microwave that starts cooking when you press the “1” button is confusing. How do I cook for 1:45?

Please don’t squelch functionality and common sense for flashy updates.
