Trends : According to google insight people are lesser and lesser interested in usability

>From the Google page "What does these numbers mean"

"The numbers on the graph reflect how many searches have been done
for a particular term, relative to the total number of searches done
on Google over time. They don't represent absolute search volume
numbers, because the data is normalized and presented on a scale from
0-100; each point on the graph is divided by the highest point, or
100.

retry: what is your favorite mobile/touch web site?

What web sites do you use on your iPhone/Opera Mobile/Pocket IE/
Skyfire device? Which ones do you think are well designed? Why?

I'm not looking for design recommendations here, but sites that you
like or that inspire you.

browser text zoom inconsistency

Hi Abhishek,

Firefox defaults to the behavior you describe, where the entire page is
zoomed in or out. There is also a View / Zoom / Zoom Text Only menu item
that causes the browser to zoom only text within the original size bounding
blocks (like how IE behaves). This flexibility allows people with visual
disabilities to choose the behavior they find most useful.

Draw (from memory) amazon.com

Apologies in advance for the shameless plug, but I thought some of
y'all might be interested in participating. Over at my company's blog,
I have a post up that asks people to sketch (from memory) what they
think Amazon looks like. I'm interested in what the lingering
impressions of a site are--and what things are most memorable.

[Event] Chicago IxDA --Topic: Sustainable Interaction Design --Wed October 8th

Hello fellow Chicagoans,

Please join us on Wednesday, October 8th for our next Chicago IxDA
gathering!

Frank Gruger, and his colleagues from Orbitz, will be facilitating a
discussion on Sustainable Interaction Design. As interaction designers we
may have felt immune to the call of sustainability and the green movement.
Up until now it seems to have been largely the concern of architects and
industrial designers connected to the use of green materials.

Heuristic Evaluation Criteria for Physical Devices

Good Friday!
I'm trying to find a list of criteria when doing a heuristic evaluation on a
physical device. So far the only thing I've been able to find is
Useit.com's list,
http://www.useit.com/papers/heuristic/heuristic_list.html which
is specific to screen interfaces. Is there anything out there for non-screen
based testing?

Thanks in advance!
David
