Another way to keep it simple ...

"One more thing that’s cool about underdoing the competition: You get to streamline your documentation.

For example, this Sony Handycam manual (PDF) has 40 pages. Compare that to the quickstart guide that comes with a Flip camera: (below)

Wow, an instruction manual that actually gets read. Impressive.
