    how can we be sure that this is not a device that tricks the brain into thinking it likes Microsoft products?

    Interesting. After Microsoft has proven they don’t have an interface design bone in their body, they are going the scientific route and trying to fine tune their products with trial and error.

    I give them props for trying. It would be interesting to see comparisons made between various operating systems.

    I wonder why they can’t just ask users: “How hard was it to perform this task?”

    I had the chance to visit the lab of the Microsoft researcher who’s working on this project. His name is Desney Tan, and he was one of Technology Review’s TR35 honorees. Here’s are a couple of articles I’ve written about his research:

    I’m confused. How can they get a patent for something that so obviously doesn’t work?
