Usability consultant in Norway.

My main focus is usability engineering and usability testing. I have my own usability lab with eye-tracking features.

comment Why are graphical user interfaces considered user-friendly?
Hehe. I have a three year old who constantly tried to hit the "play button" on move-ad on the juice carton.

I think it illustrated the power of GUI very well ;-)

Programmers do develop console applications (and services without any user interface at all!). It's is the user's needs and the purpose of the application that determines whether the application should be GUI or not.

comment How can I get useful usability data from a focus group?
What a challenge! Could you try collect some "usability goals" from these folks instead? Rate of success, time per task, efficiency, effectiveness, etc, etc. Then use this as a basis for further "quality assurance". Letting them perform a task through consensus sounds like a good idea. Perhaps you could use the goals you have set to point out the areas that needs more attention and actual user-testing afterwards ;-)

comment Apart from safety, has there been any research conducted, hopefully current, with respect to user-experience and right- vs left-hand traffic?
Yes. That was my point. If you drive a LHD car (with the driving seat on the left side of the car), then your gear stick and radio and air-condition would be on your right side. Right? Since most people are right-handed, I would claim that it is easier for the majority of us (70%-90%) to control a LHD car. All the stuff in the middle would be controlled by the dominant hand. Thus: less mental work and distraction, and more maneuvers with the hand you are more skillful with.

People driving on right side sit on the left side in the car and can maneuver most controls with their right hand. Since most people are right handed, I would assume that this would be a better solution...
