Usability applied to life
Why not take you own medicine and make your life more usable. Chad Lundgren – definitely obsessed with usability - has a listing of nine usability heuristics, which he applies to his own life.

Be sure to read Joshua Kaufman’s contribution to the heuristics, they are even more fun.

Play with the big guys and girls
Web Trumps is an online version of Top Trumps for the web generation.

Play off web celebs, such as Jakob Nielsen, Josh Davis, Jeffrey Zeldman, Bill Gates, and Steve Jobs, against each other. Each celeb has been allocated 200 points, split between the four categories design, innovation, wealth and usability.

The game-play is as exciting as a usability expert’s web site, but if you like brain-dead games such as solitaire, you’ll love this one.

IKEA fan site
There’s nothing new about sites that violate basic usability guidelines by purpose just for the fun of it. But it’s never seen in a commercial context. The IKEA’s fan-site has it all - ugly spinning animations, a disturbing background picture, a hit counter, frames, etc. The site is supported by TV commercials and is the cleverest advertising I’ve seen on the Internet.

The site is in Danish - but you’ll get the point. The commercials are also there and are worth seeing. Click the button "Se vores reklamefilm".
