A while ago I was lucky enough to receive a free copy of ‘WebUser’ Magazine, from Freeinuk.com. This magazine covers a variety of topics related to the Internet and issues surrounding the subject. It is probably one of the easiest to understand for a computer novice such as myself. The language used is not flooded with fancy computer jargon and so is accessible to complete novices such as myself. Phew!

Readers and Hints pages is probably my favourite section of the whole magazine, because ordinary people write in with some simple or complicated problems and advice is given my the professionals. The good thing is that they are often common problems and tips are always helpful, even the simplest problem is addressed and helpful hints or comments are provided to make computer use easier.

Advertisements are few within this 90page magazine, but those present are computer orientated. The current issue of ‘Web User’ is available at your local newsagent at the bargain price of £1.20, so hurry while stocks last!

*My Copy*
The copy of ‘WebUser’ Magazine, which I received, was issue 4. It covered the following topics in a simple to follow, step by step guide:
1) Choosing a default browser.
2) Installing AltaVista, Quick Search.
3) Java.
4) Saving money by working offline.
5) Sending pictures by email.
6) Set up a FireWall.
7) Sort out email by category.


**Published**

This magazine is issued on a weekly basis. It is currently on sale for £1.20 but subscribing by direct debit regularly every 6 months reduces the costs to £12.87 instead of £15.60. At £1.20 it’s worth a browse to see what you think.


‘WebUser’ Magazine also contains features about Internet auction sites too. I must subscribe on Direct Debit and then I will keep up to date and not forget to buy the latest issue! (The cost may now have increased, as I have not brought it for a few weeks). It is quite informative and gives a guide as to what to find and where to find it. ‘WebUser’ Magazine is available from most supermarkets and newsagents. If it is not on the shelf, just ask!

User Centered Web Design - Addison Wesley

User Centered Web Design - Addison Wesley

Status: New - In User Centred Web Design, usability expert John Cato outlines a design ... more

process that has a Web site visitor's needs in
mind. He offers both theoretical discussions and
real-world case studies. Although the
illustrations in this compact book are small and
not always well-printed, the insightful advice is
clearly communicated and would be valuable to
anyone setting out on the open sea of Web
development. And, with its analyses of various
corporate Web sites, User Centred Web Design
addresses particularly important issues for those
involved with e-business. This is not a software
how-to book or a showcase of what's cutting-edge
on the Web today. But it does inspire the sort of
careful thinking found in Don Norman's The
Psychology of Everyday Things. Throughout the
book, Cato offers diagrams, paradigms, and to-do
lists, the first being his looping description of
one's relation to the world: Awareness >
Understanding > Action. His model for designing is
Discover > Design > Use. Discovery includes the
vision, exploration, "the 'Ah ha' moment". Design
is where it is all born, and Use involves market
testing and verification. These are just a few of
the theoretical game plans he offers. Cato uses
case studies to show how one can make user
profiles contribute to the design process. It
feels very similar to learning good marketing
skills in business school. The book also takes a
careful look at the visual techniques used on many
sites today, breaking down what works and what
doesn't, even proposing alternatives. For example,
is the user confused over whether something is a
button? Cato writes, "Make it buttony, and employ
mouseovers to give confirmatory feedback", and "Go
for creative ways of grabbing attention; they do
not have to be large things." You'll also learn
how to push your creativity, get over your fears
and believe in yourself (good all-around life
advice). There's even a section that looks at
design issues for Web-enabled cell phones. This
book won't wow you with its visuals, but the ideas
and inspiration within may help you wow others
with your Web design. --Angelynn Grant
