This is an excellent example of ‘users not knowing what they need!’ It is so difficult for users to come up with innovative and effective ideas. Unless they have put these ideas to work and customized these innovations. Else, asking users what they think is a good idea is only likely to elicit ‘defensible’ yet ‘may not be usable’ results.

It’s also a good example of “usablity testers” not knowing how to usability test! While they’re at it, why not show the test participants the source code for the product to see if they can find bugs? ;)

“Clippy to the Rescue” is also an excellent example of a comic that turns your screen the color of whatever you happen to be drinking at the moment. Bravo!
