When I started at Microsoft in the 80s, I'd heard there were usability
lab videos of people who read the instructions "Click and drag the mouse
from the
upper left to the lower right of your display" and then physically put
the mouse on the screen and...well, you know.
I always wanted to see these videos, but no one there could find them.
