    Sadly they missed some of them while designing webOS -> Calendar/ missing Agenda:

    Most importantly, focus on the inner tranquility of the customer. Do
    you swear at your computer? (If not, you must know plenty of
    people who do.) Machine hangs. “*&#*#!!!” Lost data. “*@#$(@#!!”
    Network down. “&#@^$*#?!” Have you ever noticed you don’t feel
    that way with Palm OS products? Want to see your schedule? Press
    a button and there it is. You’re in control. You don’t wait. You don’t
    get confused or frustrated. It’s all very elegant and pleasing.
    Some of them they got right -> JustType:

    User testing also helps flush out terminology that need to be
    replaced with plain language. We get so used to our own jargon that
    we forget. To avoid using jargon, think what you would say to a
    person with little computer experience. For instance, if you’re
    explaining how to use the Find function, you wouldn’t say, “Enter
    your search string into the text field of the Find modal dialog.” You
    would say, “Write the word you’re looking for on the line.”
    To clean up jargon, ambiguities, and other language problems, have
    a documentation writer, copy editor, or at least a literate friend go
    through your application’s dialogs. It’s a good investment of time.

    A Zen suggeston for us? Now one for Palm - don't scare off your customers with the ghostly woman... Because that's just not Zen

    Yes, I'll post it.

    There's about a half dozen TV commercials for the Pre- starring Tamara Hope. I'll try to find all of them for you

    Here's some commercials, as promised:


    ..is the first one, and not necessarily creepy, but the following four were shot "portrait-style", showing only the face and shoulders, making her look like a naked apparition of Queen Elizabeth (the 1st) or of the Mona Lisa...

    IMHO, too much talking and barely showing any of the phone's capabilities:

    Here's a funny one.

    I do wonder: a lot of people, mostly former PalmOS users, still love Palm... will there ever be something like Phoenix is doing for webOS but then for PalmOS? If so, will there be people to use it?

    No no... These ones are creepy...



    Did you know:

    webOS ran on a Treo 800 during initial development.

    Unfortunately, AccessDevNet, where the Zen of Palm document was hosted, appears to be on renewal from GoDaddy... *sigh* I have the PDF. I am going to see what legel rights I have to put this on my website for distribution. I suspect none...
