A common mistake people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools. - Douglas Adams
The customary quote out of the way, KicksandKisses is a Design and Usability Blog started by Gajendra Agrawal and K.A Anand. It would mainly deal with user experience of systems. But that said it may have anything depending upon the whims and fancies of it’s creators.
The purpose of the Blog is to make users aware about Usability issues of a product or a system. At the same time helping them to make a usable product choice. This Blog will also be useful for engineers and designers to take feedback about design and usability to further improve upon their innovation.
p.s. Feel free to thrash both of them if you see errors in reasoning :).
