RE: looking for Mobile UX tool to do everything

I know that this doesn't exist but:

Is there a tool that can:

Create site maps & Flows?
Create wireframes?
Create output from the wireframes and test it in a mobile device emulator ?

We're currently using a mix of Macromedia Studio MX 2004, Visio and the openwave emulator, but haven't arrived at something we we can do wireframes and test the wireframes in an emulator. We approximate the size of the device layout in the wireframes, but the Product managers aren't convinced that it isn't 100% accurate. They want a way to have us quickly test a design in an emulator.

Workload Hardcopy vs Electronic Documents

Hello,

Does anyone know about any studies on the evaluation of the workload on using Hardcopy vs Electronic Documents? I am particularly
interested on the validity of a subjective evaluation method (like NASA TLX or SWAT) to assess the variation in workload in that
specific scenario.

Thanks in Advance

Cultural Aspects of Information Graphics

Could anyone point me in the right direction for cultural effects on
infographics? Articles, books, sites..
Would love some distinctive examples.

I saw an interesting turkish newsgraphic that told the story of a
carcrash and an infant flew out of the window and it was all very...
graphic.
Another example is the Ikea manuals in Saudi Arabia (if I remember
correctly) where the women in the illustrations are very passive.
According to these manuals, women are perfect for holding the tools
while the man puts the sofa together.

Best
