Using Google Analytics to Monitor Qt Applications - Part 2
A previous blog post described how we have been using Google Analytics at ICS to collect usage information for a Kiosk application. In this second blog post, we present technical information about how to use Google Analytics from C++ code and how Qt makes this very easy to implement.

Internet of Things: Should Designers Focus on Devices First or Services First?
So often, the Internet of Things (IoT) is discussed in terms of the technology that enables it, particularly focusing on cool, smart gadgets that will propagate in our lives. At its foundation, the IoT represents a whole lot of technological innovation, albeit driven by certain human desires, but herein holds many opportunities for usability design.

Internet of Things: Context of Use Just Became More Important
As the Internet of Things (IoT) proliferates, some user experience (UX) designers will migrate to working on unique one-off computer appliances rather than platform specific apps. On IoT projects, there are likely to be more context of use issues to consider.
