Week 2 started off a little shorter than most, due to the memorial day weekend. The unofficial end to summer meant distractions were inevitable.

The need to create products and allow the user to complete a task easily is not only an advantage but built into how our brains work. After the reading, I began to take a closer look at some of the products that I currently and started to notice where they fell short.
