"It won an award" is a four-letter word

I'm reading The Design of Everyday Things right now, and Norman presents a truism that when confronted by an object or system that has (or seems to have) very low usability, you can bet that it probably won an award for its design. Well, that appears to still be true [ /. ]. Like many design award-winners, it appears aesthetically pleasing and prone to error and misuse in equal measure.
