    in the interests of human-nature design

    Apple’s products like imac, ipod and iphone are worldly used in the interests of thier human-nature design and comfortable experience of usage.

    What does the underlined sentence mean? Can you paraphrase it for me?

    Re: in the interests of human-nature design

    Look up ergonomics, sometimes - especially in the IT world - called 'Human factors'.

    The sentence is very badly written (there is no such thing as 'human-nature design" - 'human nature' [what human beings feel about things to do with life] has little to do with 'human factors' [the way human beings relate to things as objects/technology]); Apple is famous for attention to ergonomics (how things look and feel, the 'user-experience' [another buzz-word]).
