Ease of use refers how well a user can understand how to operate a

product. When consumers become overwhelmed by a product or technology

they have a simple solution -- they take it back to the store. Industry

reports that about 30% of consumer technology products are being returned.

There is an enormous gap between what consumers think products do and what

they actually do. Join our panel as we discuss the problems with product

design vs. the cry for "make it easy to use"
