Exploring mobile gesture design at Nokia--In the wild

Just saw this across the Twitter stream. It’s a video of Nokia design team doing gestural design research for a new device. While I’m not sure if it’s an ad or an attempt at a B2B viral video it’s still somewhat interesting nonetheless. As a super-proponent of design through user research it was great to get a glimpse at how Nokia (or at least a part of their team--possibly) goes about it.

Usability Reports: A waste of time?


I'm wondering: how many of you think that writing a big report on
the findings/recommendations for a project is inefficient?

>From my experience, it seems that I end up discussing (and often
justifying) almost every single thing I write on the report, no
matter how logical it is.

Isn't a better way to just sit with the client's development team
and/or management, and get things done together?

I know Steve Krug is against reports, but I wanted to know what other
professionals' take on this matter.

The World's First Open Source Circular and Spiral Dock

Circle Dock is a free open source dock-style applications launchers
for Windows that appear where your mouse is instead of you having to
move your mouse to the dock like with other programs. This is
accomplished by making the dock a circular or spiral shape so that it
can be placed anywhere, even near the edge of the screen. The
offscreen portions of the dock are easily reached by just scrolling
with your mouse wheel or arrow keys.

Its Windows only But i would like to see..if anyone has tried this App.

Telling Interactive Stories - At NYCUPA Event

I'm curious what everyone has to say about last night event at Bloomberg
with Andrew DeVigal. Was everyone aware of this stories on the The New
York Times?

Do you think newspapers readers understand how and what to click in
order to view and comprehend the stories as they are told?

I told my story here http://user-experience.iterating.net/
