  1. The above interview of the famous scientist has provided a lot of knowledge about the usability testing. This post is really very useful. Thanks a lot.

  2. I think with eye tracking, heat map interpretation is very tricky indeed. Great interview.

  3. some really great insights into this area of experience and the optimization of the use of technology.

  4. A very interesting interview – thank you for posting. I was also pleased to hear Charles’ “on the spot” review of the Skype first user experience; I wonder – did you send Skype a bill for that insight? :) For others who don’t have time to listen the the whole interview, look for another post on this site called: Why Angry Birds is so successful and popular: a cognitive teardown of the user experience.
