Usability analytics tools?

So my role on our design team has recently been tending towards data-mining
and analytics. I've been able to get a *lot* of interesting answers to questions
using a combination of direct SQL queries, Perl, and Excel.

"Usability Meets TV Advertising?"

OK, it's a new year but an old problem:


"Experience from overseas (notably the UK) and some activity here in the US

Ease-of-use: Efficiency vs Intuitiveness ?

In thinking about the ease-of-use of a product or application, there
seems to be an assumption with some designers that give and take must

that is both efficient and intuitive?

Hey folks,

were designed, what criteria for user-centered design were followed, what

design circles.

Usability Budgets

Hello there,

I need some stats on the budgets allocated to the interaction design/
usability process in a typical project (Online application/ Software).
What percentage do the big guys spend on usability/Interaction Design/ in
comparison to the cost of developing the entire product.

Warm Regards,

Usability in the home

Is anyone out there working on usability in the home? I'm especially
interested in usable kitchens. I have yet to encounter one. I seem to
find a lot of work surrounding 2 dimensional interaction...what about 3
