  • Six things I think I think about UIs

    Premium-Inhalt. Software without a good user interface is -- well, it's useless. Unfortunately, UIs aren't nearly as well understood as more objective "speeds and feeds" kinds of product characteristics. Products with snazzy demos often prove disappointing in real life.

And so, to steal a line from sportswriter Peter King, here are six things I think I think about UIs.
