The Problem With Printers

Not everyone agrees with the development philosophies of 37signals, but you can’t deny that they do have some ideas that are spot-on. This, for example, on printers and why they are so damn annoying:

What makes this an even tougher choice is that the products look so different and yet so similar. They’re all either black, white, or grey. They’re all roughly the same size, They’re all roughly the same shape. But they still look so different. […]

Sounds like an industry awaiting a revolution.

I couldn’t agree more.
