Graphics, User Interfaces Ah, Jakob Nielsen. Anyone who has ever been involved with serious document design or web usability will know his name. If you've never heard of him, the best way to describe him would probably be this: he's the Richard Stallman of usability. He has a set of very clear ideas about user interface and document design, which more often than not get in the way of beauty. He has performed a usability study, with real users, on the iPad.

Tablet PC

Just a quick question. Since iPad is just a new TabletPC similar to concepts which have been around for 5-10 years or so. Beyond that it obviously lacks a lot of UI consistency. I think it'd be interesting to see this TabletPC (iPad) vs other tabletPCs from say 5-6 years ago up 'til today.

I'm fairly certain that even 5 years ago there were quite a lot more usable tablets than this one, even with flash on top.
