Default A Conversation with Bill Buxton and Albert Shum; Microsoft's User Experience Gurus

"...I sit down with Bill Buxton, Principal Researcher for Microsoft Research and Albert Shum, Director of Mobile Experience Design for Windows Phone 7 Series to talk about creating compelling user experiences, how developers and designers can work together in harmony and random Canadian trivia."

Bill Buxton is a Principal Researcher at Microsoft, and Albert Shum is a Mobile Design Partner - curious titles, but if you want to understand some of the background behind the user experience of Windows phone 7, this video is a must-watch.

UPDATE: The video embed code from channel9 doesn't want to work, so you'll have to jump over to their site to watch the video.

I would like to see an interview with whoever it was that decided copying the iphone was a good idea.

Edit: seems we also have to ask who was the genius who decided not to include COPY & PASTE!!

I don't think they copied the iPhone. The experience is quite different, in fact.
That said, I'm not sure I like either.
Sad but true, I'm probably going to stick with WM6.5 for at least a while and look seriously at Android.
