Nice article on the design of the Tivo remote controlin tomorrow's Times

When is someone going to realize that people watch TV w/ dimmed or no lights
on? How often I've been watching a DVD or something off the DVR and I get a
call and I can't find the stupid PAUSE button. Would it kill them to make a
remote that is backlit like a phone touch pad?

Otherwise, I agree w/ Nielly about the FAV button.
What I wanted for a FAV button was something that limited my GUIDE, not
something that went up (you can't go backwards) a shortened chain. Why is
that? Well Ok, I love TV, right? My FAV list turns out to have hmmm?

Does User Experience Save/Make Money?

So, try as I might, being a new UX developer, I'm trying to find reputable data about reputable companies who saved/made [insert actual dollar figure], and how usability testing was responsible. I was actually told at work today that "there is no way you can prove that usability testing makes money." It's a personal challenge now. Smile

Early-bird-priced ticket for Interaction12

Hello IxDA peeps,

Long time no speak! Hope everybody's doing very well. I have an early-bird-priced ticket (575 euros) for Interaction12 that it doesn't look like I'm going to be able to use. I'm heart-broken to break my streak of attending all the Interaction conferences to date, but c'est la vie....Transferring registration from me to you is perfectly OK according to the conference website.

Got an App for Projecting Time?

Hi Folks,

I'm looking for some kind of app that can help me visualize how booked I am with projects and when I will open up. I'm thinking something that allows me to list out my projects, indicate how many hours I expect to work day-by-day or week-by-week over a period of time into the future. Then I can see when the total hours falls below my available working hours.

I don't want to use a traditional Gantt chart, but something that allows me to see real numbers. In that way I want to see if my total is above, below, or spot on the number I have available.

What do you call this?

I do this--


--and it's been very useful.

The author calls it "wireframing," but everyone else in the world says that
a wireframe is a low-fidelity mockup.

Do other names exist for this sort of clickable, text-only, HTML

Philips USA CEO: Do People Need the Gizmos we're Selling?

I get a daily new digest from my co's marketing research team. Thought this was a relevant article for this list. Sadly I could not find "Current Analysis" on the web, so I've included the article, not a link. My apologies.

Reminder: IxDA Silicon Valley Event at Yahoo! :: Jan 23 2013 :: Steven Hoober on Designing for Ecosystems Instead of Screens and Pages

Too often, we design systems for boxes—whether big, metal boxes that it would take a forklift to move or little plastic boxes that we carry around in our pockets—rather than thinking about how they are connected and how people can share and use them to do work. When it’s all about the computer or device, we design systems, tasks, and content that fit into those little boxes.
