What is product?

A product can have following attributes

  1. solves a primary problem
  2. easy to use
  3. adds value
  4. simplifies living
  5. connects lives 
It need not solve a unique problem. It can solve a problem that has never been defined. More importantly it should connect with the user. 

It is an expression of the creator.  It shows the care taken before presenting it to you. It is a way of communicating that I am trying to help you in ways in which you have not been treated before. A way of connecting with the user.

It is integral to your living but at the same time not addictive. It solves quickly and goes back to hibernate. It does not take away your productivity and hints that you have spent more time than is the norm. 

If there is a value to the user then the creator also benefits monetarily. Its a crime to charge somebody who is trapped and has no way out. A willing user who comes to the product by choice is better. 

It should come to you through friends, it should be discovered to you when you need it, it should be forced into your view when you don't have the need for it. 

It is not the sweat and effort of creator but the process of creation. How and what you felt while it was being created reflects in what it eventually becomes?

What does a product mean to you?
