Designing for a TV screen

I'm doing some design research for a client who offer a Video On Demand service in the UK. Currently, the service is predominantley available in a desktop browser environment. Sensible, they are now starting to get the service on to televisions via the slew of devices able to do this (games console, internet ready TVs etc...).

iPhone usability tests

User Centric released a summary of the results of their early
usability study they performed on the iPhone. I liked how the keyboard
while "frustrating" performed better than comparable systems. The list

Take a look.

Starting week 2 and my current response to on the street queries to
"do you like it?"
"It has the same number of problems as any other phone smart or
otherwise I have owned, but 10x's the enjoyment.

Who is taking over the UX world? (notes from STC conference)

This week, I attended the 52nd STC (Society for Technical
Communication) conference. It's a major event with close to 1,000 of
attendees and up to 25 sessions running in parallel (multiple by 3
days by 3-4 session slots per day). In other words, it's big, well
established and influential in its world.

What totally surprised me is that both opening and closing keynote
speakers chose absolutely the same theme: User Experience Design. I am
not that familiar with the STC world, but the surprising choice didn't
seem to be coincidental.

FW: ADMIN: Topics (was RE: Issues raised at London meet)

hey there folks,

sorry I didn't jump on this earlier today. I should have. The topics that
david raised are all good ones.
If the topics were meant to be specific to the londoners I suggest that the
people who led the london discussion have another less formal face 2 face as
follow up for IxDers who are interested in meeting again in London to talk
about those issues.

If the topic was meant for a wider international discussion, this list is
not the appropriate place for this discussion.
