http://ml.hoogerbrugge.com -this is good harmony between technology and user because the technology allows the user to navigate the site well-Good because the user goes on the website to play around with the animations and that is all the website does.-good because there is no extra items on the site that you don’t need that will make the sight load slower

this is a good example of the perfect harmony between technology and audience need because it is well designed and allows for users to easily access everything provided on the website, the design is not overcomplicated.  With each separate page, the background remains the same and the main text changes out from one single location on the page.  The complicated technology is there, but the audience doesn’t necessarily realize that.

I chose this obscure site for my good link today.  Although it is pretty simple and somewhat unnecessary, it uses technology in  a fresh and creative way that entertains its audience without making the material too complex for the average user to understand and follow.  http://onemilescroll.com/

http://theovenreinvented.com/ a website advertising a new oven techology that allows you to virtually cook different kinds of dishes-all the necessary information is available-you can compare the time the new oven takes compared to the conventional time-depending on what dish you decide to cook, it automatically highlights the features in charge and that are needed to make that dish-you also have the option to see the finished dish-there is also a human chef interacting with you.I think this is a very successful website, because it functions the same way as the product it is advertising. The websites is as simple to use as the oven itself. The link between product an website is very clear and well made. If you know how to use the website to virtually cook a dish, you also know how to do the same on the actual oven.Really well done in delivering that message of simplicity to the user. After playing around on the website, it really made me want to purchase the product 🙂

For my good link this week I chose http://neckerisland.com. I chose this website because for the target audience, the rich and famous, this is a pretty good site. The video at the beginning shows that they are all focused on you and that when you come to our island that you will never have to do any work and we will be at you’re beck and call. It has pretty easy functionality. It looks very clean, crisp, and beautiful. The navigation is very easy and folds up and down. It is very picture oriented and is not very text oriented which is good for the purpose of the site. They explain the activities and services on the island by showing you through pictures with very minimal text. They are trying to convince the viewer that this is going to be the most relaxing, comfortable, fun, and amazing vacation they have ever been on while promoting class, quality, and the best experience. Most people if they are looking at this site have a lot of money and don’t really care too much about the details of cost and what many people worry about when booking a hotel.

http://www.hollisterco.com/hol/homepage.html

For my good link I chose a simple website involving a clothing line which I’m sure everyone has heard of “Hollister” Why? Well when it comes to shopping online the audience obviously needs some simple navigation, and I don’t know about anyone else but I know when I shop for clothes online, I obviously know I’m a guy so I’m going to look up clothes in the guy section, and I want a button up shirt so I’m going to click on button ups. This website is pretty straight forward to that point, and any other clothing website I’m sure is the same way.

Martin + Osa is a division of American Eagle, Inc. brands. Named after the modern day husband and wife explorers, Martin & Osa Johnson, the brand is devoted to creating a personal, exclusive shopping experience on a broad scale for modern, middle-aged Americans with a contemporary lifestyle. The website illustrates harmony between technology and audience. The site isn’t overwhelmingly flashy but the index page is appealing … a bar at the top of the page has a rotating list of reasons why shopping at Martin + Osa is a superior experience (free returns, etc.) The content is very well organized, and mouseovers highlight related categories, which makes the content appear more succinct and easier to navigate. One can shop “a la carte” or by outfit. The basic, simple technology on the website is right in line with its target audience.

http://www.amtrak.com/servlet/ContentServer?pagename=Amtrak/HomePageI thought that this was a good website because it had a lot of technology incorporated into it,but the site doesn’t seem overwhelming.  The audience needs to be able to interact with this site in a complex way to book a train ticket, but by breaking down a complex task into simpler, smaller steps, the task becomes more managable.
