On this page I will collect examples of poorly designed products.

Hotel Light

If you designed this hotel light, would you hide the ON button under the arm and also add a second separate “master” switch” (the square gray one) without a label? If so, you should not be designing lighting products. Or anything else.

Who, by name, is responsible for USB-A cables having no symmetry, so you get it wrong half the time? He is an enemy of humanity. There should be an international Computer Crimes Tribunal to judge and sentence him. Death would not be too severe a penalty-- seriously. He has cost mankind a lot of hours and energy.

Who is responsible for USB-C cables having two-way symmetry? He is smart, or, at least, of ordinary intelligence, and should be commended for it.
