Google suggest

http://www.google.com/webhp?complete=1&hl=en

Is this the Google version of the ms 'paperclip' or is it genuinely
predictive text?
Technically very interesting in an 'under the bonnet/hood etc' way. The
relevance is very useful.

[RE:] tooltips standards

There's something on this in "Research-Based Web Design & Usability
Guidelines" (Sanjay Koyani et al); guideline 7:10 Use 'Glosses' to Assist
Navigation. It says, among other things, "Users prefer the preview
information to be located close to the link, but not placed such that it
disturbs the primary text.

Event Report :: The Future of Digital Product Design

Dirk Knemeyer is an excellent speaker with a flare for the dramatic and put
together a great presentation on "The Future of Digital Product Design."
Showing a very interesting diagram that illustrated all of the forces at
work in product design--marketing/engineering, the business vision/the
product's functionality and its enabling technology/people and their
experience of a product--Dirk discussed the anatomy of product design. His
talk then touched on the evolution of digital products--including digital
convergence and next-gen digital products.

Google Groups - When Interaction Design goes wrong.

I need some help here,

I have been an avid user of google groups for a few years now (and was using
deja news before that). The first version of google groups was a bit clunky
but once you worked out how to use it you could find and read messages very
quickly. To keep track you could search for someone and track your posts
just click on your name. Sure the way to find groups meant sometimes groups
where hard to get to. Gradual improvements where that - improvements but
there was some room for a few changes.

The along came the google groups 2 beta.

Re: Tooltips Standards

The default time it takes for a tooltip to show on hover (In the MS
world) is 500 ms (Cooper also describes this as the acceptable delay).
That value is drawn from the mouse double-click time in the control
panel. You can tweak it however you like for your app, though. In the
app I work on we needed to slow tooltip display significantly because
we were bombarding the user.

The standard for placement of the tooltip WRT a text field is that it
be centered underneath the field itself.

tooltips standards

Hello,

I am adding tooltips to a desktop application and am trying to find out what
the standard/best practice is for tooltips associated with fields. Should
the tooltip appear when the user hovers over the field label, field itself,
both? How long should they hover before it appears? Any online documentation
about this would be super.

Julie
