The Bloomberg Machine

I always wondered what the Bloomberg interface look like. Given the success of the company and it's dominance throughout the world's trading floors, you would think they would have an excellent user interface. Turns out, it's not very good. Or at least, it's not very good for someone like me. Despite it's ancient green terminal screen looks, traders apparently don't even focus on the screen, but rather patterns in movement and color that indicate an opportunity. It must be like playing some retro video game except there are billions of dollars at stake. Check out the article at UX magazine
