Two unrelated posts; both usability-related:
- I’m sure that Microsoft has used personas in design and evaluation before, but have they advertised it so broadly–even bragged about it? I think one of the major benefits of personas is that it focuses development (and evaluation) reducing feature creep; something that the old Windows phones were definitely guilty of [Engadget].
- This third-party “fix” for Apple’s Mighty Mouse is simple and interesting. Is the original mouse a case of form over function? [Switched]
