Design Centrado no Usuário (DCU) é o processo de design em que as necessidades, desejos e limitações do ser humano são levados em conta durante todas as fases de concepção e desenvolvimento de um projeto. DCU é focado na criação de produtos e serviços fáceis de usar e se baseia especialmente em pesquisa, prototipação, teste com usuários, nos princípios de design de interação e usabilidade. Empresas que são orientadas pelo Design Centrado no Usuário possuem a inovação em seu DNA e atuam de forma diferenciada em seus segmentos: CESAR, IDEO, Nokia, Intel, Philips, Apple, entre outras.
I'm an avid iPhone user myself and I really love and appreciate the overall experience and the device itself.
But, being so successful, I feel that iPhone surprisingly has numerous undiscoverable UI features. Many of these, unless accidentally discovered, will never be known to a user. Also, many of them are not even listed under iPhone Tips & Tricks also! (I bet more than 90% of iPhone users wouldn't care to read the iPhone User Guides).
An article of mine was published by core77 yesterday and I'm interested in hearing your reactions. Does the article resonate with you? What did I miss? Get wrong/right?
Designers of interactions have the opportunity to move their purview
beyond the shallow plane of interaction into the design of systems,
organisational capability and culture; to tackle very complex problems
and affect profound and lasting change.

The Call for Proposals to co-host Interaction 12 has now formally closed. I'd like to thank all of the groups who showed interest in the process and the opportunity to bring the IxDA's conference to their city.
Submissions will be reviewed and evaluated over the coming few days. Groups may be contacted for clarification of their proposal, but material changes to the submission will not be permitted.
I've written a usability report that I converted from Word to a PDF (based on limited tools I have to work with), but wanted to add some interactive elements in it -- namely the ability (1) to show larger images and (2) play embedded videos from a link. Unfortunately, despite the limited tutorials I've found and Adobe's mediocre help content, I haven't been able to figure out how to do it, and was hoping someone else has done something like this.
Hi, maybe you guys already know about this, but we found this great tool. It's positioned as an "art" tool, but it's been great for us to quickly view mouse and click activity. It's free and available here: http://iographica.com/
[Actually, it IS nice art as well...]
