One of my team sent me this hilarious video on how Microsoft would have designed the packaging on the original 2005 iPod.
This is something we deal with every day in the design of FirstRain. We strive continuously to simplify, make our product (both visible and invisible aspects) more elegant and it is an ongoing, never ending discipline. There is Great Art in making something very complex (like a high quality digital music device and music store - or intelligent business search) deceptively simple. It is a wonderful thing to see.
And this is not something Microsoft is any good at!
