    Yahoo’s share of search in the United States has dropped for the first time since it signed a deal to be the default search engine in Firefox. The drop follows two months of impressive gains. The loss suggests that a “high water mark” has been reached for gains the deal can produce for Yahoo and that “switchback” by Google users may now slowly cause Yahoo to give back share. A Small Drop For Yahoo

    In the middle of last November, Yahoo because the default search provider for Firefox users...

It is a fantastic exploration of empathy in design, and includes a framework for making empathy part of our everyday work in a very practical way:

    Designers will be the first to admit that not every empathic observation leads to a miraculous insight. However, it’s called “Design Thinking” for a...
