Settling in with the iPad (or, how Alan Cooper saved my marriage)

Wife (happily emailing on the new iPad): “How do I attach a photo to my email?”

Me: “Hmm good question. How about you find the photo first?”

Lesson learned: Object first then Action. One of the first rules of interaction design. Thanks Alan Cooper 🙂

(PS Alan, if you’re reading, please can you sort out your website. It’s like AntiRom 1994 in there! All very wizzy and everything but I just wanted a URL to link to your very fine book. Unfortunately it #failed)
