Size isn't everything: Why the iPad isn't just bigger; it's a whole new UX, and how to design for it

In this session we will explore how the variations in hardware and OS capabilities between the iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad demand and deserve individual attention to the how user experience and design are applied to applications through the exploration of the unique contexts of use, physical constraints, input methods, and connectivity options of each device in order to exploit their inherent opportunities to create more targeted, enjoyable and successful applications

MVP: Minimum Viable Product vs. Maximum Value Product

Start-ups and product reboots are all thinking the same thing - how quickly can we get to market? The app market is break-kneck, and being first-to-market, or soon-to-market can be important, but, not at the expense of quality. In this talk we'll explore the motivations for being first, and argue the values of being "better".
