Got to keep up with the web. Here is a collection of pages I've bookmarked.
Garrett Dimon is going it alone again. Great article - I hear everything that is being said
Wise words from Tim Berners-Lee. Why are so many URIs appalingly crap? More on this soon...
This is always really tricky, but this is a good go at a function to do it and is very useful
The 7% solution
So think about this one. Then think about it again. Now apply it to your own market sector.
Not UI (although many lift control panels need better thinking about) but this collection of lifts from around the world is great. However, a glass floor lift - Not me...
Windows Mobile is appallingly bad
Been using it all day and it is rotten. I mean, why have both a "Wifi" and a "Wireless LAN" control panel - both of which do different things???
KDE 4 goes RC1
Apparently not finished on the UI polish yet - but looking damn cool
No comments found here
New scientest look at web comments and why they tend to the abusive side of a conversation
Easy to use mobiles
Massive gap in the market here - and still not filled. Warning - shockingly bad web-site
Firefox 3 sees Beta 1
Must be something in the air - all the browsers (minus IE) are getting great upgrades just now
Beautiful concept - if it sees the market this will go down very well
There are lots of UI possibilities here (do one thing well) - although I do want to know how on earth you would enter a WEP password on the demo device...
Hooray for eye candy!
Once you have the basic functionality nailed - what makes people buy your product? DESIGN
Marketing is not a dirty word
Of course not. UX and marketing are entirely complimentary - when your UX and marketing people work well together, all are happy
Apple has set the standard
And others are failing to live up to it - looks like Windows Mobile has got very little going for it (a cursor on a mobile???)
The long wow
This is it, totally bob on. You want people to constantly enjoy using your UI
How to engage a design team
Design is a two way process (if you want to get the most out of it) - some ideas from the Adaptive Path team
Breaking UX down
User Experience involves a lot of different skills. This is a great breakdown of what is involved in the various aspects
Common usability issues
Reordering last weeks list of problems - some of these really annoy me when I am actually looking for something
Using the space dimension
Using space is becoming more and more important - and it offers an incredible number of opportunities
State of the art with CSS
Still good to see the working group pushing on - shame that the modules we really wan (Advanced layout and Grid layout) are still only being explored...
