The Difference Between UI and UX

As long as there is still confusion among few, these DTDT posts seem relevant. ‘Filed in Graphics’ (sic!)

“In today’s creative and technical environment, the terms UI (‘User Interface’) and UX (‘User Experience’) are being used more than ever. Overall, these terms are referring to specialties and ideas that have been around for years prior to the introduction of the abbreviated terminology. But the problem with these new abbreviations is more than just nomenclature. Unfortunately, the terms are quickly becoming dangerous buzzwords: using these terms imprecisely and in often completely inappropriate situations is a constant problem for a growing number of professionals, including: designers, job seekers, and product development specialists. Understanding the proper separation, relationship and usage of the terms is essential to both disciplines.”
