Steve Jobs and design

Hey folks -

I'm a reporter at Reuters, I like design, and I'm doing a story about Steve Jobs, Apple and design. My two main questions are 'how do they do it so well?' and 'how do they manage to ship when their sites are so high?' Please drop me an email if you have insite and would like to talk. I'm also interested to watch discussion on this board. My email is peter.henderson@thomsonreuters.com.

Thanks -

Windows Photo Gallery for user testing?

Hello fellow IxDers,
I am getting ready for some user testing for a web site upgrade. I'm
working with a company who is mostly interested in feedback on the
taxonomy and general look and feel of each page of their web site. I
am using .jpgs for this test.

However, I prefer scenario based testing whenever possible to add a
dose of reality to how they see the page, ("See if you can find
information on plant nurseries in your area"). This test will likely
be a combination since you cannot actively "click through".

No, we're not. If we're to agree with MW - Amazon and eBay as a *whole*
are web apps since they use HTTP/HTML. Their payment processing engines
in particular are not necessarily web apps.

I would agree that it's problematic.

A New Approach to Interaction Design

Hello IxDA:

This message is to encourage you to preview and purchase a book which
describes a new perspective on IxD. While IxD appears in most
universities as either an adjunct of HCI or as a Design skill in the
department of Mulitmedia/Art, this treatise argues IxD as a scientific
pursuit which sees no boundaries to the topical application of its
form, encompassing all of science.


"Interactivity is not merely the study of computational interfaces,
but observation and application of universal behavior with respect to
all systems, sciences and processes.
