User Interface Quotes By Gerard Meszaros

User Interface Quotes By Robert Patterson

Perhaps the most versatile and useful plug-in in the collection is Mass Copy. It is certainly the one I use the most. Due to limitations in how plugins can interact with Finale, Mass Copy has a somewhat unusual user interface. — Robert Patterson

User Interface Quotes By Astro Teller

Every day, hundreds of millions of people stab themselves, bleed, and then offer, like a sacrifice, to the glucose monitor they're carrying with them. It's such a bad user interface that even though in the medium-term it's life or death for these people, hundreds of millions of people don't engage in this user interface. — Astro Teller

User Interface Quotes By Jakob Nielsen

To design an easy-to-use interface, pay attention to what users do, not what they say. Self-reported claims are unreliable, as are user speculations about future behavior. — Jakob Nielsen

We'll continue to expand our footprint ... Oracle's Fusion cloud applications for HCM, CRM and ERP all have a new simplified user interface and an integrated social network that makes our enterprise applications as easy-to-use and familiar as Facebook, while enabling better collaboration and teamwork among your employees and your customers. — Larry Ellison

User Interface Quotes By Sharon Lee

The principles of good human-to-computer interface design are simplicity, support, clarity, encouragement, satisfaction, accessibility, versatility, and personalization. While it's essential to heed these, it's also important to empathize with and inspire your audience so they feel you're treating them less like a faceless user and more like a human being. — Sharon Lee

User Interface Quotes By Joel Spolsky

A user interface is well-designed when the program behaves exactly how the user thought it would. — Joel Spolsky

User Interface Quotes By Ron Conway

Pinterest is offering consumers a way to discover things on the web, in a serendipitous way, with a beautiful user interface. So it's offering a whole new paradigm called 'discover' and allowing users to be creative. — Ron Conway

User Interface Quotes By Quentin Delaoutre

Yonomi Yonomi rules are called "routines". I really like the user interface on the Yonomi app. As Yonomi is dedicated to automation on smart devices, they propose some specific services. When you signup, you can launch a discovery of your devices. It is way easier than checking each device available on the Yonomi platform to see if there is one you own. One of the other advantages of Yonomi was the ability to have several actions linked to one trigger but IFTTT recently did an update to propose the same features. Yonomi will have a simpler way to trigger routines than IFTTT. Because they have an Alexa skill, they let you use queries such as "Alexa, turn on [routines name]" or "Alexa, turn off [routines name]" which feels more natural than the trigger keyword from IFTTT. — Quentin Delaoutre

User Interface Quotes By Francois-Henri Pinault

I closely follow everything about user interface or human-computer interface: technology that makes computers closer to the way the human being actually functions. — Francois-Henri Pinault

User Interface Quotes By Nicholas Negroponte

Computer science departments have always considered 'user interface' research to be sissy work. — Nicholas Negroponte

User Interface Quotes By Bill Gates

Steve Jobs' ability to focus in on a few things that count, get people who get user interface right, and market things as revolutionary are amazing things. — Bill Gates

User Interface Quotes By Linus Torvalds

In many cases, the user interface to a program is the most important part for a commercial company: whether the programs works correctly or not seems to be secondary. — Linus Torvalds

User Interface Quotes By Erik Naggum

They don't make poles long enough for me want to touch Microsoft products, and I don't want any mass-marketed game-playing device or Windows appliance near my desk or on my network. This is my workbench, dammit, it's not a pretty box to impress people with graphics and sounds. When I work at this system up to 12 hours a day, I'm profoundly uninterested in what user interface a novice user would prefer. — Erik Naggum

User Interface Quotes By Andy Hertzfeld

People who work on the user interface side need to have empathy as a key characteristic. But if you are writing device drivers you don't really need to understand humans so well. — Andy Hertzfeld

User Interface Quotes By Linus Torvalds

Often your 'fixes' are actually removing capabilities that you had, because they were 'too confusing to the user'. GNOME seems to be developed by interface Nazis, where consistently the excuse for not doing something is not 'it's too complicated to do', but 'it would confuse users'. — Linus Torvalds

User Interface Quotes By Frank Bentley

A mobile device adds rich contextual sensors and is aware of the world around it. Context is now much more than knowing where you are in an interface - it is where you are in a densely rich real-world environment. No longer is it enough to present a "map" of archived, published information. No longer is it enough to simulate a virtual world. The mobile device must be able to sense where a user is and facilitate actions situated in an immediate, living moment of experience defined by real places and times, by real states of being. — Frank Bentley

User Interface Quotes By Weili Dai

Women have their own strengths, like fashion. In technology, we can contribute in a big way in terms of the design of the user interface. — Weili Dai

User Interface Quotes By Karen Blumenthal

was one of those sort of apocalyptic moments," he said later. After seeing what Xerox called a graphical user interface (sometimes pronounced — Karen Blumenthal

User Interface Quotes By Douglas Coupland

User Interface Quotes By Jakob Nielsen

A general principle for all user interface design is to go through all of your design elements and remove them one at a time. — Jakob Nielsen

User Interface Quotes By Christopher D. Manning

The key utility measure is user happiness. Speed of response and the size of the index are factors in user happiness. It seems reasonable to assume that relevance of results is the most important factor: blindingly fast, useless answers do not make a user happy. However, user perceptions do not always coincide with system designers' notions of quality. For example, user happiness commonly depends very strongly on user interface design issues, including the layout, clarity, and responsiveness of the user interface, which are independent of the quality of the results returned. — Christopher D. Manning

User Interface Quotes By Philippe Kahn

Radically simplify the user interface, reinvent it, enough face lifts! You can put as much lipstick on a chicken as you want, it's never going to look good! — Philippe Kahn

User Interface Quotes By Steve Jobs

It was one of those sort of apocalyptic moments. I remember within ten minutes of seeing the graphical user interface stuff, just knowing that every computer would work this way someday. It was so obvious once you saw it. It didn't require tremendous intellect. It was so clear. — Steve Jobs

User Interface Quotes By Jeff Bezos

I don't want to use my creative energy on somebody else's user interface. — Jeff Bezos

User Interface Quotes By Aza Raskin

To the user, the interface is the product. — Aza Raskin

User Interface Quotes By Ted Nelson

A user interface should be so simple that a beginner in an emergency can understand it within ten seconds. — Ted Nelson

User Interface Quotes By Walter Isaacson

Jobs's intensity was also evident in his ability to focus. He would set priorities, aim his laser attention on them, and filter out distractions. If something engaged him- the user interface for the original Macintosh, the design of the iPod and iPhone, getting music companies into the iTunes Store-he was relentless. But if he did not want to deal with something - a legal annoyance, a business issue, his cancer diagnosis, a family tug- he would resolutely ignore it. That focus allowed him to say no. He got Apple back on track by cutting all except a few core products. He made devices simpler by eliminating buttons, software simpler by eliminating features, and interfaces simpler by eliminating options.
He attributed his ability to focus and his love of simplicity to his Zen training. It honed his appreciation for intuition, showed him how to filter out anything that was distracting or unnecessary, and nurtured in him an aesthetic based on minimalism. — Walter Isaacson

User Interface Quotes By Seth Godin

The librarian isn't a clerk who happens to work in a library. A librarian is a data hound, a guide, a sherpa and a teacher. The librarian is the interface between reams of data and the untrained but motivated user. — Seth Godin

User Interface Quotes By Jeff Gothelf

It's often the case that teams working in agile processes do not actually go back to improve the user interface of the software. But, as the saying goes, "it's not iterative if you only do it once." Teams need to make a commitment to continuous improvement, and that means not simply refactoring code and addressing technical debt but also reworking and improving user interfaces. Teams must embrace the concept of UX debt and make a commitment to continuous improvement of the user experience. — Jeff Gothelf

User Interface Quotes By Howard Rheingold

When designers replaced the command line interface with the graphical user interface, billions of people who are not programmers could make use of computer technology. — Howard Rheingold

User Interface Quotes By Anonymous

A great app starts with a great user interface. — Anonymous

User Interface Quotes By Thorsten Heins

The user interface on the iPhone, with all due respect for what this invention was all about is now five years old. — Thorsten Heins

User Interface Quotes By Neal Stephenson

Disney and Apple/Microsoft are in the same business: short-circuiting laborious, explicit verbal communication with expensively designed interfaces. Disney is a sort of user interface unto itself - and more than just graphical. Let's call it a Sensorial Interface. It can be applied to anything in the world, real or imagined, albeit at staggering expense. — Neal Stephenson

User Interface Quotes By Mitchell Baker

I like to see photographs: I like to see my family. To me, when I open a basic browser, and it's that very elegant silver simple user interface, I am unhappy. I don't need elegant and silver and simple! — Mitchell Baker

User Interface Quotes By Steve Jobs

Well, Apple invented the PC as we know it, and then it invented the graphical user interface as we know it eight years later (with the introduction of the Mac). But then, the company had a decade in which it took a nap. — Steve Jobs

User Interface Quotes By Walter Isaacson

There would be times when we'd rack our brains on a user interface problem, and think we'd considered every option, and he would go, " Did you think of this? " said Fadell. " And then we'd all go, " Holy Shit." He'd redefine the problem or approach, and our little problem would go away. — Walter Isaacson

User Interface Quotes By Edgar Bronfman Jr.

You need to look no further than Apple's iPhone to see how fast brilliantly written software presented on a beautifully designed device with a spectacular user interface will throw all the accepted notions about pricing, billing platforms and brand loyalty right out the window. — Edgar Bronfman Jr.

User Interface Quotes By Marshall McLuhan

The user of the electric light
or a hammer, or a language, or a book
is the content. As such, there is a total metamorphosis of the user by the interface. It is the metamorphosis that I consider the message. — Marshall McLuhan

User Interface Quotes By Nathan Myhrvold

Computing has gone from something tiny and specialized to something that affects every walk of life. It doesn't make sense anymore to think of it as just one discipline. I expect to see separate departments of user interface, for example, to start emerging at universities. — Nathan Myhrvold

User Interface Quotes By Brian Behlendorf

I'm not of the opinion that all software will be open source software. There is certain software that fits a niche that is only useful to a particular company or person: for example, the software immediately behind a web site's user interface. But the vast majority of software is actually pretty generic. — Brian Behlendorf

User Interface Quotes By Steve Jobs

I'd like to create an integrated television set that is completely easy to use. It would be seamlessly synced with all of your devices and with iCloud. It will have the simplest user interface you could imagine. I finally cracked it. — Steve Jobs
