"Simplicity changes the world. Convenience is a force multiplier." - Jonathan Schwartz in a Fast company interview

Case in point - search engines. They make searching so much easier. Everytime my Oracle database throws an exception with an ORA-<some number> code, I just Google for it, rather than going to Oracle and looking it up there. Usually, someone has already written a friendly description or even found a way to fix it. So the service that helped me solve my problem is really the search engine, for making things so simple, so convenient. Even for some colloquial words or phrases, I just lookup in a search engine and always end up finding the meaning of that word or phrase.

So the search engine guys took a very complex technology and added a simple interface to it and made it convenient and easy to use.
