Photoshop, Illustrator & InDesign

Hi All,

Tool Question:

So I create my designs in Illustrator, my colleague in Photoshop. But we
both use (she plans to) InDesign to document our F&BS and U&DAs. As for the
F&BS, there is the writing, layout of the doc, and then there are the visual
design (screenshots). Do any of you use these tools to produce your docs?
And if you do, I'd like to ask how you solve the following problem.

I create the images, and paste them from Illustrator to InDesign. But then I
make changes to the native file.

re: McAfee UI Design group wins big w/ 90% drop in support calls

I read this article couple of months ago.....first I was glad to seesuch article.

Then I started talking this with my colleagues (more business/marketing folks...).......our conclusion was that 90% seems little high - we felt it was exaggerated. There could be variety of reasons why McAfee didn't receive much support calls - one reason might be people simply didn't really use it.....and list does on.
