Toronto - UX Irregulars Meetup - Nov 3rd WUD!

Hi All,

There's a Toronto UX Irregulars meetup next Thursday, Nov 3rd to celebrate
World Usability Day. We're going to meet at the Rhino (1249 Queen
West) at 6:30 and go until about 9:30.

There's Wifi, so bring your laptop/whatever and feel free to do a
little show and tell/whatever if you're so inclined. It's the typical
eclectic affair.

iPhone Number Conversion

Does anyone know how you can PREVENT the iPhone from taking a string
of numbers and trying to convert it to a phone number? I know that
there are ways to code a link as a phone number, but we have several
strings of numbers on a mobile site that we want to prevent from
being converted to a useless phone number.

I did some searching, but couldn't find anything relevant.

Real-World Research

Designers know the benefits that design research provides in shaping
good user experiences for products and services. But practicing
effective design research for technology products in the corporate
environment (whether for start-ups or for international corporations),
requires ingenuity, flexibility, and a sense of humor. Want to try
your hand at it?

'R&D' vs. 'mainline' design & usability

Hello -

Do you have similar experience you can share? I'm a solo usability practitioner
responsible for both analysis and design for a small software company. I'm
getting mixed signals about what my priorities should be, especially because we
are simultaneously dedicating lots of resources to pure selling, and to
improving what customers already use. So, my time is being divided between the
needs of our pre-sales team and development.

My question is - how common is this?

Gadgets are great... if your customers can figure them out.

Here's a good article from The Consumerist... it states that consumers
often return electronic gadgets under the assumption that they don't work,
when in fact, they just can't figure out how they work.... to the tune of
$14 billion per year.
