Refresh: The App a Secret Agent Would Love – Nir and Far
I used to do this at AnySystem. I wrote down all the little things I learned about someone (how to pronounce their unusual name, what their kids' names were, anniversaries, new car they bought or want, etc) and I'd casually drop those things while we talked... the key is to casually mention it, not say it all in one breath like you can't wait to get it out. People remember you, they end up liking you and they buy from you.

design-product, user-interface = Wow! What a difference. Amazing results by "niching down" ---------> "By connecting the app to my calendar, I would receive a notification promptly after my meetings to ask, “What would you like to remember about your meeting?”

Unfortunately, results from the prompt were lackluster. Asking users to input notes with an open-ended question worked for some, but didn’t engage those who were less motivated.

That’s when the team came up with a novel solution. Instead of using the old vague prompt, they decided to test structured categories. Names of family members could be put into the “names and people” category, while notes on a big upcoming vacations could be entered under “big events.” The seemingly simple change made a massive impact. The new prompt increased the number of notes entered by users 3X over the old method. Shah’s app was finally becoming a user habit."

Jeremiah Owyang - This will go down in the halls of bad design as...
What the fuck were they thinking designing this stupid fucking card like this? It's exactly the way untrained, unthinking mutants communicate. Which is why the world is the mess that it is. (and people like me are in high demand)

If You Start Reading This Story on a Phone, You'll Probably Finish on a Laptop
The experience almost always results in increasing screen size. Although, if you ask me, I think the screen size is the more minor of the observerations - or rather, it's only causal. The real issue is that people are going for easier input methods -either a larger virtual keyboard or a real, full-sized hardware keyboard. .......... But because there are no devices that pair small screens with large keyboards, they didn't realize their mistaken observation.

▶ Was iOS 7 created in Microsoft Word? - YouTube
filmmaking-technique = Interesting how the video is sped up and he just talks over it. He could have made this a 30 minute video if he didn't speed it up and explained each thing has he did it, but he chose to speed up the video and talk over it, sort of "glossing" over the process, opting instead for a high level overview of what is going on.

Security warnings do better if they use scammers’ tricks, research finds | Naked Security
"Anderson and Modic advised software developers who create warnings to follow this advice: --- The text should include a clear and non-technical description of the possible negative outcome. --- The warning should be an informed, direct message given from a position of authority. --- The use of coercion (i.e., threatening people so that they feel like they have no option but to do as told) tends to be counterproductive, whereas persuasion (i.e., getting people to voluntarily change their beliefs or behaviour) tends to get better results."

Seth's Blog: Sort & search
"For example, the way a restaurant sorts the wines on the wine list at will have a dramatic impact on what people order. If you list the cheap wines first, people will probably end up spending less. And when your wine list migrates to an iPad and you let the diner sort by price, popularity and other indicators, consumption patterns will instantly change." ............... This makes me think about Computech and how products can be arranged or sorted in a variety of ways: most to least processing power, "bang for the buck" (price-to-performance ratio), physical size, age, discontinued-vs-not, etc

Introducing the Leap Motion - YouTube
Leap Motion represents an entirely new way to interact with your computers. It's more accurate than a mouse, as reliable as a keyboard and more sensitive than a touchscreen. For the first time, you can control a computer in three dimensions with your natural hand and finger movements.

The Leap Motion works on Windows Vista/7/8 and Mac OS X, with Linux being on the agenda.

In this video, we are running Windows 7. The display is an Apple Cinema display.

How To Improve Usability With Fitts’ and Hick’s Laws | Van SEO Design
Due to the larger transmission hump both acceleration and brake pedals were moved a few inches to the left. This increased the distance between the foot and brake pedal making it more difficult to apply the brakes. People were mistakenly stepping on the acceleration pedal when they meant to step on the brakes. This was a design error and specifically a violation of Fitts’ Law.
