The video created by Microsoft employees emphasizes the value in simplicity. I think the video did a good job of showing multiple ways that overloading something with information does not help. Having too much stats, features, and logos can cause them to compete with each other for the customers attention. It comes to the point where all of it is too much and important things or the whole product will be overlooked. It is interesting to see the huge differences in Microsoft and Apple's advertising technique. Apple has used extreme simplicity and it has worked very well for them.

Completely original ideas are hard to come by these days. Creativity has become more and more rare. Those who can't come up with original ideas often look to others to get "inspiration". Even if these people may have the best intentions, they can often unfairly take others ideas and make profit out of it. This is why creators should protect their intellectual property. Their ideas may not feel important all the time but in the right hands and context they can become something great. Unfortunately, getting credit for that greatness can be hard to get.

Documentation Project Research

By on

Adobe Acrobat is a very wide ranged program with many applications and useful parts. It is a lot more broad program than I expected and learning about it has changed what I thought my Documentation Project was going to look like. It is good though because I hope to use my Documentation Project to be able to help someone in the same position as me learn about Acrobat and what it can be used for. I have learned that Acrobat as a whole is used to view, create, edit, print, and organize PDF files.
