Data Visualization + UI.
robick is a great example of the power of data visualization to make user interface fun.

That is so sad.

seldo:

This is genuinely Microsoft’s idea of a “streamlined”, “optimized” UI for Windows Explorer. They were so proud of it they wrote a blog post about it.
The post is a sort of masterpiece of crazy rationalization, but I think my favourite part may be this screenshot:

Here, they proudly overlay the UI with data from their research into how often various commands are used. They use this to show that “the commands that make up 84% of what users do in Explorer are now in one tab”. But the more important thing is that the remaining 50% of the bar is taken up by buttons that nobody will ever use, ever, even according to Microsoft’s own research. And yet somehow they remain smack bang in the middle of the interface. The insanity is further enriched by this graph:

Again, this is Microsoft’s own research, cited in the same post: nobody — almost literally 0% of users — uses the menu bar, and only 10% of users use the command bar. Nearly everybody is using the context menu or hotkeys. So the solution, obviously, is to make both the menu bar and the command bar bigger and more prominent. Right?
Microsoft UI has officially entered the realm of self-parody. That is so sad.

Sorry Google, but after the COMPOSE MAIL blood thingy… these very confusing inbox options are not helping the Gmail UI.

Tea for iPhone is so beautiful you want to start drinking a lot of tea, if it’s not already the case.

Look at this settings controls. Very, very polished.

I can keep scrolling Nizo’s page all day long. It’s sad because it’s an app site, but the effect is desktop only.

With the Foodish interface, you actually wanna to keep track of your meals. I’m hungry now. :)
