Re: info on Button Behavior

Hi Jerry,

What's the user's most likely expectation?
1) Results from even a Google search have a last page. (more likely based upon assumption than actual experience ;>)
2) If the button is labeled "Next" and lets me click it, there are (still) more search results to peruse.

Isn't it best to meet the user's expectation in the absence of a compelling reason to the contrary? Seems to me more rude to leave the Next button enabled than disabled.

Apple Content vs. the rest of the world (was iPad.

The larger issue at hand is the way the iPad handles files in general.
It seems there's no way for files to be shared from app to app
without the need to connect to a network file server.

Your point is fine, but it wasn't the point I was making.

Avoiding subjective topics in meetings

Often, when dealing with clients, they love to discuss subjective
topics that have no validity, because they have no empirical
evidence. These could easily be obviated with usability studies, but
very often, clients do not want to these studies. Also, time with
clients is limited, so meetings are wasted on useless discussion and
not important decisions.

These topics can often include: colors, toolbar/button placement,
logo placement, transitions, etc.

Does anyone know of good "best practice" methods to avoid this
waste of time.
