Marco.org - Overdoing the interface metaphor

DVD players don’t make fake whirring noises for five minutes before letting you eject a disc to simulate rewinding. Similarly, nobody should need to perform a full-width swipe gesture and wait two seconds for their fake page to turn in their fake book1, and nobody should need to click the fake Clear button and start their calculation over because their fake calculator only has a one-line, non-editable fake LCD.

JD’s Blog » Blog Archive » Business porn: the company dashboard

by 2 others
Few people know this, but I absolutely love seeing the dashboard or backend systems of various businesses. Thankfully, in this age of e-businesses they’re becoming more and more prevelant and more and more sexy. I’ve been meaning to post about this in the past but had not got around to it when I spied a hacker news post about the new Panic Status Board. I really recommend reading the thread.

iPad Application Design » Matt Legend Gemmell

I held a 6-hour workshop at NSConference in both the UK and USA recently, focusing on software design and user experience.

I gave a 90-minute presentation on the subject to start each workshop, and I want to share some of my observations here.

The Newspaper Tablet Concepts - @Baekdal

Penguin Offers a Glimpse of The Future of Ebooks - @Baekdal

Earlier this week Penguin presented their vision for how they could translate their book into the ebook format. Or rather, how they can really make us of digital publishing to create much better books.

LukeW | New Multi-touch Interactions on the Apple iPad

by 1 other
During Apple's 90 minute unveiling of the iPad this week, a lot of new multi-touch interactions were shown off. But they went by fast. So as a service to digital product designers everywhere, we took the time to extract 8 minutes of new user interface demos from the iPad keynote. Now you can quickly just catch the UI in action on Apple's new native iPad and iWork applications.

The Weathered Underground: Interactive Trailer Lets You Choose

Interactive Cinema has been promising to break through for more than a decade, but Hollywood has yet to calculate how to make interactive films and what to do with them once they're made (like, you know, to make money and that sort of thing).

Convertbot - Tapbots

Convertbot Convertbot is a unit conversion robot. Convert currency, length, mass, time and much more in an exciting new way! Converting numbers will never again be a mundane task.

Other converters require you to convert that to 5.75 ft in your head before being able to enter it. Convertbot allows mixed units like Foot + Inches, Pounds + Ounces, and more!

Information Architects » Blog Archive » Designing Firefox 3.2

In January 2000, T-Online asked us what we’d do if we could design a browser from scratch. Our answer was “Tabs”. Eight years later Aza Raskin, head of user experience at Mozilla, asked me what I think a new tab should look like. The answer after days of mailing back and forth: “Forget tabs!”

Official Google Blog: The evolution of Gmail labels

I love labels in Gmail. Most email programs use folders, which only let me put mail in one place at a time. With labels, I can organize mail in multiple ways. Combined with filters to automatically label incoming messages, Gmail offers powerful ways to organize email.
