First paragraph: The ideas behind feature interaction were first identified in telephony. Telephone subscribers can choose various capabilities as features that augment the basic call. For example, a subscriber might choose to forward incoming calls when busy, to queue incoming calls, or to have a distinctive ring pattern. Since these features may be independently designed and tested, they may not fully cooperate with each other. For example, call forwarding on busy and call waiting will conflict when the user is on the phone and a call arrives. The former would forward the call, but the latter would allow the user to accept the call.
