  7. 7. Usability and UX – a scenario“The customer, looking for a new digital camera, goes to the largeelectronic retailer’s website. She quickly finds the camera she wants,puts it in the cart, and without incident, pays for it using the option topick it up at the store that same day. Quick, easy — she is pleased andexcited to receive her camera. Website usabilityWhen she arrives at the store, she initially doesn’t know where to go,as no visual clues present themselves. After a ten-minute wait at thecustomer service desk, she’s told she’s in the wrong place and needs tofind another desk, this one labelled “Online Receiving”. Once she findsthat desk, the clerk, who obviously can’t wait for his shift to end, sighsand says the camera she’s purchased is out of stock. She can buy adifferent camera at this point, but to receive a credit for her originalonline purchase, she needs to call an 0800 number. She ends up leavingthe store without a camera and a charge on her credit card she needsto resolve.” User experience Jared Spool http://bit.ly/QkzSxJ
