Software made in Korea

by Volker Weber

This explains everything:

Sources told me that LG had a policy in place to reward managers with bonuses or even promotions if their features were part of the final product. The result was a constant feature bloat, as everyone tried to add on one more thing.

I always wondered how you can possibly add so many useless features to a product. Let's hear it from Steve Jobs:

People think focus means saying yes to the thing you've got to focus on. But that's not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully. I'm actually as proud of the things we haven't done as the things I have done. Innovation is saying no to 1,000 things.

Amen.

Like I said: saying 'no' to the right things is an art.
