What do you really really want in a relationship? Well, it should feel like a breeze, no? Someone should just know what you need and as your needs change with time, that same someone (that is if you are still together!) should somehow get telepathic and still understand your needs…what a beautiful relationship!
They say you should keep your expectations low in order to have a fulfilling life…but then what would that be like…boring? Perhaps!
Now why am I talking about relationships when I meant to talk rather write about user interfaces and interactions…after all aren’t we also trying to create relationships here?
A beautiful interface may seduce you but if it is not satisfying your needs it ain’t going anywhere with you…no way! Is it helping you find a Chinese eating place when you are looking for one or asking you zillion questions instead? Is it helping you find a cab when you need it the most? Or is it helping you find long lost friends? Perhaps it is. Perhaps it isn’t. But you will stick to the one who keeps you most happy, of course.
To all the designers and developers who are out there busy marking their to do lists for the day, do stop and ponder…will what you just ticked, make someone happy or just tick someone off
