FW: Bumptop

I can't decide which I want more...the "bumptop" or the "$$$" ring one
of the narrators is wearing.

For those of us designing Tablet based stuff, this might be really interesting:

Bumptop is a new interaction model for working with objects that we
keep on our desktop.

I find the "pliability" demonstrated in the demo to be quite high, and
the engagement factor of manipulating objects in such a "real" fashion
to also be high.

Check it out! And be sure to watch the whole thing. I didn't start
really liking it until I got towards the middle to end.

Yahoo Messenger bottom fillet

Hi all,
At the risk of sounding uninformed:

Why does not the right bottom part of yahoo messenger
have a fillet?

Is this a yahoo/web standard. I haven't been able to
find any reference to the same.

What is the logic? The window can be expanded both
ways, so whys the fillet missing on one end only?

Any clues?

Thanks and Regards

Navigation on WAP sites


Is it better to give a deeper navigation structure on a WAP screen? Is it
good practice to put all all the links (that are there on the Home page) on
all the inside pages - shallow navigation; as compared to putting only the
link 'home' on all the inside pages, so a user has to come back to the home
page to select other activities - deeper navigation?

Considering that a mobile screen has limited real estate, is a deeper
navigation better?

Design-oriented Conferences for 2007

Hi Everyone,

I'm shopping for a conference that will inspire me as a designer. But the
list of the usual UX standbys feels like it's focused on research methods
and tools rather than the actual craft of design. Granted, the best part of
*any* conference I've attended has been the networking, but this year I want
to be immersed in the design portion of what we do.


Here's a list of links to UX-y Conference programs I considered. It's too
late for me to plan for SXSW, and the program for Connecting '07 is too
vague at this point for me to make a decision.

Remote usability testing and participant feedback


It's been a while since I heard anything about the remote-usability testing

I've personally used online questionnaires, postcards, discussion forums and
