But the folks at 37signals keep telling us that “less is better.” Less features! Less options! Less! Less! Less!
So who do we believe? Are they of two different worlds?
Actually, I think both companies strive for simplicity in their systems. While no one wants to think of buying “less” computer (we always want bigger, faster, more in hardware, don’t we?) people do like simplicity in their software. Both Apple and 37signals try to offer simple, easy to use software, and I think they’re both succeeding in that area.
