Maximum permissible delay between user action and feedback from Television


I am working on television EPGs. I was wondering about the maximum permissible delay between a user action and the feedback from Television.

Eg: User presses ChannelUP button on the remote control. TV responds to the action by changing channel. What should be the maximum allowed delay between this for a good user experience?

Jakob Nielsen talks about 3 response times - http://www.nngroup.com/articles/response-times-3-important-limits/

I am not sure whether it is applicable for TV watching scenario too.

filters for a profile search

Hey IxDAers,

I'm designing a site that enables law firms to search law student profiles
to find job candidates, and have have to build the interface attorneys will
use to search the student profiles. I'm struggling with how to start the
search. Most fields have set values (state, law school name, law degree,
field of practice, state licensed in), and it seems we'd kick it off with
filters. There are about 15 such fields to search by, and we've got the
primary filters list down to 5 (those stated above). other filters will be
progressively disclosed.

Accessing repetitive motion in a web application?

Howdy Folks,

I was wondering if anyone has suggestions on how to best access repetitive motion in a web application. I'm also be super curious if anyone had automated testing around it in their QA departments, but would be just giddy if I had a better way to access it initially.

Thanks very much,


Becky Reed

Research/paper/insights on Use of mobile technology by Professionals on the move


I'm currently working for an internal paper for my organization.

I need to collect research material on usage of mobile/technology to meet user needs, specifically of professionals that are constantly on the move. I'm also looking for content on behavioural and motivations for such professionals.

Any relative links or cues in this direction will be a great help.

Looking forward for more enriching information.
