Editorial It's conventional wisdom that computers need to be "easier to use." But do they? More reliable, yes. Easier to troubleshoot, yes. But now that so many people use computers so much, I think there's something to be said for making them less easy-to-use and less intuitive.

The more people we have using computers the more information they can gather and use to get things done more efficiently and then they can move on to spend time on more important things like family...

I'm not sure that anyone has ever in the history of computers been able to go home early because they finished their work quicker.

On the contrary, computers make you easily accessible and therefore decrease your free time.
