All I want for Christmas ... is a new mobile phone

One of the first lessons in usability is that people vary and that designing for ‘average’ doesn’t work.  Nowhere is this more true than in the highly competitive world of mobile phone design.

Actually I don’t want a new mobile because I have an iPhone and I love it.  Of course, it’s not perfect but once again Apple has demonstrated that it understands the importance of the ‘user experience’.  Even its cardboard box is beautiful.


The Web Week in Review

Perhaps I'm simply tiring of the economic news (or becoming immune to it). Increasingly, I find myself being drawn more and more to random news stories unrelated to the flurry of bad news that seems to come on the economic front.

Tis the season to be jolly, right? Here's this week's hodgepodge of news and it's not all bad.

It was another crazy week for the global economy and there was plenty of news to follow. Here are the tech stories that caught my eye.


Reaping what they sow part deux

In past posts, I have noted that the problem of intellectual property theft on the internet was likely to become a problem for consumers as those who are impacted by it look to implement more draconian measures.

And so it appears that consumers in the United States may reap what they sow much sooner than they anticipated.


The Web Week in Review - Mobile Edition

I thought I'd focus on tracking what's going on in the world of mobile this week, so without further delay, here's what caught the eye of the mobile Drama 2.0.


MySpace Music sings a disappointing tune

The unveiling of MySpace Music last week was eagerly anticipated and was notable because the site managed to launch with all four major record labels as joint venture partners.

But as a product, does MySpace Music live up to its promise? I decided to give it a test drive to find out.


The Web Week in Review

For some reason, the news that interested me the most dealt primarily with two words: music and Google.


The Web Week in Review

Admittedly it was difficult to pay attention to all of the news in the technology industry his week - the news in the financial markets more than overshadowed it.

This week's Web Week in Review has to touch on the financial crisis but there were other tech-only stories that did manage to make it onto my radar.
