Don’t be a laptop loser!

October 30, 2007

I am an UCLIC’er – if there is such a thing -, yes we all love to whinge about everything that is wrong with products, it is a habit that seems to stick, but every so often something just hits a nerve.  Rachel Benedyk, UCLIC’s ergonomics lecturer finally snapped after seeing several years worth of students slacking around with laptops and   actually did a study about how much they suck (WARNING -this is a 500k PDF, obviously user experience is not Rachels strong point!) – good for her though – hmm but I remember earlier lazing against the radiator with my big clunky via on my knees whilst watching tv – i don’t see that changing very soon.   The poster is good too.
