Alternatively, whenever anyone posts a question where the answer is so
clearly "It depends," the original poster has to donate $10 to IxDA.

Re: [IxDA] where to use eye tracking?

I'm with Jared,   Eye tracking tells you about common user bahaviour, how people read pages and what they are likely to look at. If you're farily clued up on that already and know your theory it is unlikely you'll learn anything new.  Eye tracking tells you what people are looking at but not what they are seeing or what they comprehend.  Contextual studies and talking aloud during traditional testing will tell you far more than eye tracking can and are still needed to make sense of any eye tracking work you do.

Why not ask for *opinions*? (was "The old Play/Pause toggle")

Why do so many list questions always begin with "Are there any studies
about...?" instead of "What is your expert opinion about...?"

It seems to me that quite often the question being asked is unlikely to show
up in any relevant research studies anyway.

Remote Control

I have been testing a touch screen remote (Marantz/Phillips) as part of my
research. Of the 100+ people that have done my experiments, only about 10
of them did not find divided attention an issue. They get very absrobed in
the small touch screen and have to be prompted to look at the TV screen to
do part of the task (setting VCR clock via on-screen menu).

However, the remote is very versatile if you have a lot of devices (eg home
theatre), especially high end devices with a lot of options.

Quote from Ziya's sig

At the bottom of Ziya Oz's email signature is the following quote, "In
design, interaction is the last resort." I'll assume since he doens't
attribute it to anyone else, it is his.

For people unaware of Ziya, he is a former list member here, but is
more active on the SIGIA-L where he is a pundit for DESIGN.
