FW: info on Button Behavior

Jerry John said:

"i'm looking for a good reason to leave the button disabled ..."

I think leaving the button enabled can induce the user to see the next set
of results when there are none...forcing the user to load another page where
he or she will be warned of that fact. I would definitely disable it.

Best Regards

Easy to read = Difficult to Remember

I found this blurb on Engaget very interesting:

http://www.engadget.com/2011/01/17/princeton-study-shows-that-easy-fonts-make-things-harder-to-reme/

"...[a Princeton study] has shown that readers retain information more reliably when they are challenged with so-called "disfluent" fonts..."

The American People / Politicians = The Users / Developers (?)

Watching a YouTube presidential campaign clip the other day, the candidate
kept saying "The American People this" and "The American People that".

The way it sort of trilled off the tongue reminded me much of developers
saying "The Users this" and "The Users that".

We've all heard of or employed various ways to work the design past "The
Users" when creating software: user research, personas, inviting a couple
representative users onto the design team, etc.

Re: [IxDA] Suggestions, Examples or Patterns for a Touchscreen Radio Button / Binary Control?

Working on iPhone for the past year, the touchscreen binary control is a switch that is labelled on or off. Or, if you need to explain in more detail, a two-part segmented control works, too. Descriptions of both are listed in the Apple documentation. http://developer.apple.com/library/ios/navigation/index.html

User Experience Research Issues

I am reading a book about User Experience and came across the
following in the Research Plan chapter:

"The competitors' design is a lot less polished and much more
chaotic, yet they get twice as much traffic with a similar amount of
advertising."

How can you find such information about the competitor's traffic?

Is such information available for everyone?
