According to a Harris Interactive poll conducted in September, 49% of Americans believe “wearable tech is a fad.” That sentiment seems to be a result of the less-than-stellar reception given to recently released devices such as the Pebble and the Galaxy Gear.

Here is a nice idea from the new G+ app for iOS: when you click the ‘add link’ button, the app suggests what’s in the clipboard starting from the idea that you probably will not type the link but that you have copied it in the clipboard.

Here is another real life example after my Another (good) example of (bad) UX design.

Do you want some water? Put the glass in the proper place and push one of the two buttons over the glass: one is supposed to give you cold water, the other water at room temperature.

Now the question: which is the button that gives you cold water? The white one or the blue one? Pick your choice :)

p.s. And don’t ask me about the small round red button next to the glass: I’m too scared to push it!

Extremely interesting study by Google on the usage of smartphones, tablets, PCs … or better on the usage of ‘screens': The New Multi-screen World.
