False Goals

Most of the software-based products we use every day are created with false goals in mind. Many of these goals ease the task of software creation, which is a programmer's goal, and this is why they get promoted at the expense of the software's user. Other false goals have to do with tasks, features, and tools. They are means to ends, but not ends in themselves, and goals are always ends.
