This is a great example of the things I wrote about in my article "Simplicity Rarely Means Less". By adding content and details you actually make it easier to accomplish your goals.

To clarify, add detail

- Edward Tufte

Note: Although I do like many of the concepts brought forward by Edward Tufte, I rarely agree with his sense of design. For instance, I do agree that the built in stock-market application on the iPhone is not that useful, and that Tufte's concept gives investors a more valuable tool. It also seriously lacks the elements of design. Functionality needs design to become really useful.
