A big downfall in the IT industry is fixing inventing a problem that doesn’t need fixed. “Problems” are fabricated and “fixed” because we’re too eager to use new technology. This eagerness manifests itself as a superfluous new feature, an implementation that is stimulated by a common misconception that adding more features is a market advantage. This couldn’t be further from the truth. This downward path usually ends in badly.
