Although many of Jakob Nielsen's observations are sound, I'm not a fan of his recent writing -- I stopped reading AlertBox a few years ago when too many of his postings seem to be of the 'here's some cursory information -- buy the whitepaper if you want more'.

If you want a quick, simple book on usability concepts for web design, take a look at Steve Krug's Don't Make Me Think. It's the first book I typically give people on usability, as it's a very usable book itself.

    [Corion]: GrandFather: Yeah, in that aspect, hardware is far more a black box than software
    [GrandFather]: Oh, and the manufacturer tells lies too! I'm sure they don't mean to, but I know for sure some of the stuff they say is just wrong. It's possible they don't understand what we are asking, but that's not a good look either
    [Corion]: GrandFather: Ah, unit testing hardware is fun, especially when the hardware is uncalibrated ...
    [GrandFather]: Us: "What scaling do we need to apply to the numbers from the SDK for the wibble?". Them: "Oh, the numbers from the SDK for the wibble are already correct, they don't need scaling"
    [GrandFather]: In our code: wibble range 1 scale by 1, range 2 scale by 2, range 3 scale by 4, range 4 scale by 8
