Multi-channel retail experiences: best practices

Hi everyone,

I am doing a research on best practices of multi-channel retail experiences.
I am particularly interested on integrated experiences connecting online and
offline retail. Does anyone have good examples I can learn from?

Thank you very much,

Direct manipulation Model vs. Object Manipulation Model?

Hey guys,

i guess i've got somehow a stupid question for you but I couldn't
really find a solid answer on the net so I would like to bother you

I am a student who is writing his final thesis which involves a huge
amount of Interaction Design. I never had lectures in this topic so
nearly everything is learned by book or net. That is why I consider
my question as a rather stupid one.

You guys all know about the direct manipulation model. The software I
designed used that in the first concept as well.

reading/scanning - tables the facts

Many kinds of information is best presented in tables.
For example information that we want to compare on
different attibutes e.g. financial information.

But also information about e.g. songs in an mp3player
is good to present in a table allowing sorting on
different attributes.

My question is - what is the ultimate design (shading,
horisontal, vertical lines, no lines)of a table from a
reading point of view.

I remember that Tufte suggested that vertical lines
between columns was inappropirate - since "lines" was
formed by the info in the columns (like below).
