Paranoia in Your Pocket

Too many features, too little time

A few years ago, columnist Jim Sollisch wrote about his struggles with "feature fatigue," a condition that occurs when having too many choices results in inaction for fear of making the wrong decision. This condition is also elegantly described in The Paradox of Choice: Why More is Less by Barry Schwartz. I loved this book, and recommend it to anyone who is frustrated with current technology and marketplace. If you're in a position to choose simplicity and focus within your own work or company, please take pity on us consumers and opt for less, not more.
