I recently saw an advertisement pop up on my Facebook timeline comparing European and “American” police vehicles. I tried to post a comment explaining some of the problems with the image and that people shouldn’t buy into it and the person who shared the image deleted it. Well, some people don’t like hearing the truth, but considering how many people actually believe this nonsense, I’m going to blog about it instead.

The world of user interfaces is a dreadful one. Trying to account for every possible thing a user can do can be quite tedious, and making your user interface easy to use in all those cases even moreso.

Whenever a user has the potential to do more than one thing wrong at a time, they should be shown all those things they’ve done wrong when they first submit. This seems to be where most developers have trouble. Let me explain.
Most people see Santa as a magical character living on the North Pole with all the magic in the world, a person who just shows up once a year to hand out presents.

See, he’s experienced every situation life can throw at a person.
I was bored laying in bed one night and was trying to figure out something to do. I like playing card games but the fun ones requires multiple people. All I could thing of as far as single player was boring old Solitaire, which gets really lame after the first or second game. So, I decided to come up with my own game. I love playing Blackjack and Poker (Texas Hold’em style) so I created a little single player mode so I could play by myself. Basically, you’re just playing against the ‘house’ like you would at the casino.
