Blackberry Storm

I stopped by the Verizon booth in the mall the other day to try out a
Blackberry Storm, the new one with the touchscreen. I'm a current Verizon
customer, and my antique Moto Razor is about to do the El Croako. I'd heard
the Storm had a good browser and a great screen for viewing media. Since
Verizon has treated me pretty well and I've no complaints about their
service, I was curious about their new phone.

The guy at the booth let me play with theirs. I tried typing on it, and was
not very successful.

usability study methodology

I'm conducting a usability study of a U.S army corps of engineers website.
The most important component is a task analysis. In this case we sit along
with the subject and have a dialogue with them as they go along with the
task (talk to them about what they are thinking, try getting their thoughts
out), and give them hints if they are stuck etc, until they get to the
result (all info is captured in the coding sheets).

Another research I recently noticed used a diametrically different approach.
They just give the task to the subjects and left them on their own.
