Why is technology so badly designed? An important question. Here is part of the answer. Read Don Norman as he talks about trying to fix the poorly designed power switch Apple computers used to have.

On that note, why are PC power switches so badly designed? They're put on the back of the machine -- sometimes there are two of them! My radio's powerswitch is on the top. My TV's powerswitch is on the front. I do not own a single appliance where something as important as the powerswitch is tucked away around the back out of sight.
