Why Apple and Google are struggling to design simple software

I was recently reminded of this when I tried to quickly snap a picture at a recent Apple event. I tried to double-click the home button on my locked Galaxy S6 to call up the camera. But I took just a moment too long, triggered the fingerprint reader and unlocked my phone instead — and completely missed the shot.It was a momentary irritation. But it did make me — at the ripe, old age of 30 — a little wistful for the days when buttons on devices had one function. And it also made me sympathize with the many readers I hear from who say that managing their devices, or even just using basic software, is just getting too complicated.
