And flickr is beautiful (although the interface is very simple). Of course what is inside is more important than design but beauty is attractive, don't you think? An ipod is a nice product and it helps.

Of course benoit, If on top of basic good functionnality the design is there then it s even better, as i mentionned at the end of my post. But we over estimate the need for appearance and should focus on providing a good service. For example Skype is a great product but the design is not competing with Yahoo Messenger. But if it was nicer then great! Ipod is the ultimate combination of design and functionnality so it stands out of the crowd


You're ignoring something critical. People accept crappy interfaces that are free. When you pay for something it's a completely different hurdle. You can't compare iPods and craig's list. Would you pay $300 for the "craig's list" of iPods?? Or would you pay $20/month for craig's list? $1/month?

Then you're going to tell me that people happily pay for craig's list job postings. That's just companies trying to reach a large audience...not the same thing as paying for access.


I have noticed the same things in the frum world. It seems that the two most popular sites and Have the worst possible designs, but people eat it up. It seems to me that it is also about community. They are so hard to build, but once you have it, then it doesn't matter what you look like.


It reminds me a post on business2blog about "how MySpace beat Friendster". Their answer is that you have to let people express themsleves the way they are, even if you don't like what they are. So maybe, when you care too much about the design you don't care enough about your users...

Have to agree on the Crocs shoes - just got a pair and they are really comfortable and sort of a cross-walking model for home/outside wear. Their quirky form and design just add to the "coolness" ranking.
About the trendy side - they've been gracefully adopted by many medics at hospitals.

If you were going to buy a golf club, you wouldn't walk into a store and buy the first one you see, would you? Of course not; especially if you want to improve your golf game! You'll want to hold the club, take some practice swings, hit some balls if the store has a practice spot, and look at the price, of course. If you are considering buying running shoes, you need to go through a similar process and take the time to find the perfect shoe.
