Have you had your cute overload today?

Need to see something cute? Then I have a Website for you!

And, no, this is no Ajaxian. Cute Overload doesn’t have anything useful. Just cute pictures of dogs and cats and stuff like that. Oh, so cute!

But if you want to learn something, especially when it comes to Ajax stuff, Ajaxian is my choice.

Today they show off a continuous scrolling trick like what Google Reader uses.

If you watched my Microsoft Research video last night you’d know that eye track research shows that scrolling is good (the second demo we got there was with a guy who does EyeTrack research on how people use the Web). It’s why I argued to make PodTech’s pages scroll down so that surfers could scroll through the river and fish for interesting stuff. If you watch the MS Research video you’ll actually see how this works on an EyeTrack machine and we talk about why Live.com turned off its continuous scrolling capabilities (the engineers there couldn’t make it work smoothly on all browsers).

  1. I really like how this video is being filmed showing the building around and how Microsoft star researchers showcase the latest research and capability of Microsoft.

    Scrolling works well when you are scanning images on image sites. Image stock sites gives you choice to show 20 images, 30 images and 40 images per page. To make the decision faster, usu it is better to show maximum images per page so that you can scroll up and down to select the image instead of clicking back and forth.

    Another scrolling situation is well-adapted by Top marketing guru across the nation. Heavy-weight established marketing guru discovers it is better to have their marketing site to be a very long letter on homepage. They have done extensive research and survey to find this very long letter page that you have to scroll all the way down to be very effective in selling. These are the marketing guru that charge $5000 for a one-day of seminar. Still there are hundreds of marketers are willing to pay the price to attend.

    Eyetracker may be limited in research area. In marketing research course, we discuss the possibility of how eyetracker integrated into targeted advertising. Marketers implanted eyetracker on wall-sized advertising. A shopper stops and watchs the ad. You carry a cellular phone embedded with credit card chip using technology in Near Infred, aka Contact-less. This chip functions similar to the magnetic strip on your credit card. Once near contact is made, NF reader can read your identity, credit history, along with your shopping profile. The advertising screen will response with targeted advertising to you. Say you just purhcase a house that prove you have good credit and financial ability. The advertising screen will show you your next dream vacation you should take.

    Smart card didn’t take off for numerous reasons. NR is the technology that credit card industry is moving to. Web SIG will cover how these NF technology merged with web and mobile devise next year, and credit card transaction. It seems like many focus on Web 2.0 stuff like webtop app, social networking, social media. What about Transaction 2.0?

    Paypal used to get all the spotlight. Google checkout is kind of quiet. We will make some noises on the new wave of transaction at Web SIG.

  3. Haha veronica, that sounds like one of those cute cat pictures.

    It’s kind of disorienting to see a page like this at first, and the loading isn’t smoothly streamed for me; I wonder if it could buffer, not unlike streaming audio.

    And OH for those of you who would rather not see cute things, there’s a page for you too:

    ;)

  5. Robert, Interesting set of statements…

    “Today they show off a continuous scrolling trick like what Google Reader uses”

    Vs

    “why Live.com turned off its continuous scrolling capabilities (the engineers there couldn’t make it work smoothly on all browsers).”

    I wonder why this is the case ? after all most of brightest set of programmers work in both business houses ? SO why did one group fail and the other group succeed ? Is it because the underlaying framework, is truely not supportive of the Ajaxian stuff ??

  7. The fact that Cute Overload received a People’s Choice Webby Award calls into question the whole premise of the Wisdom of Crowds.
