Very good article!

You know, engines for race cars are very important: they give you power and speed to win races.

But have you ever driven a car on ice? No matter how soft on the pedal you are, it seems that all that power causes a lot of troubles … so you end up spinning around 🙂

That’s the same concept for race cars: if you have the most powerful engine but it is un-drivable you end up losing races maybe not being able to accelerate out of corners due to the high amount of wheelspin.

I think you have a similar effect with user interfaces of our applications: you may have the most powerful software to solve a specific problem but if your user experience sucks … your app sucks and sorry but you are going to lose: as easy as that.


I’m really impressed by the new UI of the Google App for iPad: polished, essential, nice …

Lately I’ve started being interested in presentations design: I’m attracted by the way in which designers can represent info in a good and simple way for people to understand the concepts behind them.

FlowingData is a blog that explores how designers, statisticians, and computer scientists are using data to understand ourselves better – mainly through data visualization.

In a recent post, Worldwide Obama Buzz Visualized, they show a visual representation of the mobile phone activity during the celebration of Barack Obama’s 100th day as the President of the US. Here is the result:
