Mac OS X As you have surely noticed by now, Apple's CEO Steve Jobs held his keynote speech yesterday at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco. So far, the responses have been mixed; I have seen a lot of excitement, but also a lot of disappointment. Personally, I am not really sure where I stand.

Absolutely not. Some of the best kinds of testers for an application are people who have never used it before, or who don't use it on a regular basis...especially for usability studies. More often than not they'll reveal flaws that other folks would have overlooked due to the different ways they use an app.

The first thing I do with any personal projects I release is park my technical-as-a-rock girlfriend in front of it and watch her click around...it's amazing how much more I learn about non-geek usability that way.
