Technologies have a life cycle says Donald Norman and companies and their products must change as they pass from youth to maturity Alas the computer industry thinks it is still in its rebellious teenage years exulting in technical complexity Customers want change They are ready for products that offer convenience ease of use and pleasure The technology should be invisible hidden from sight br br In this book Norman shows why the computer is so difficult to use and why this complexity is fundamental to its nature The only answer says Norman is to start over again to develop information appliances that fit people s needs and lives To do this companies must change the way they develop products They need to start with an understanding of people user needs first technology last the opposite of how things are done now, No description available, Did you ever wonder why cheap wine tastes better in fancy glasses Why sales of Macintosh computers soared when Apple introduced the colorful iMac New research on emotion and cognition has shown that attractive things really do work better as Donald Norman amply demonstrates in this fascinating book which has garnered acclaim everywhere from i Scientific American i to i The New Yorker i i Emotional Design i articulates the profound influence of the feelings that objects evoke from our willingness to spend thousands of dollars on Gucci bags and Rolex watches to the impact of emotion on the everyday objects of tomorrow Norman draws on a wealth of examples and the latest scientific insights to present a bold exploration of the objects in our everyday world i Emotional Design i will appeal not only to designers and manufacturers but also to managers psychologists and general readers who love to think about their stuff, From water faucets and airplane cockpits to the concept of real time and the future of memory this wide ranging tour through technology provides a new understanding of how the gadgets that surround us affect our lives Donald Norman explores the plight of humans living in a world ruled by a technology that seems to exist for its own sake oblivious to the needs of the people who create it i Turn Signals i is an intelligent whimsical curmudgeonly look at our love hate relationship with machines as well as a persuasive call for the humanization of modern design
