Separate Navigation labels and page titles

I¹d love to hear people¹s opinion on how closely navigations titles should
match page titles.

E.g. A primary nav might include ³Products | Services | Customer Service |
About Us². These titles need to be short to fit into the space and to make
choosing one easy and strait forward.

Clicking on ³Products² in the navigation would bring you to a page that has
an top heading (H1).

Should that H1 title be exactly the same? E.g ³Products²
Is it OK if it is a little friendlier? E.g ³Our Great Products²
Is it OK if it very different?

Pointers to Browsing UIs

I am looking for examples and pointers to visualizations of browsing UIs.
What is used on the iPhone is one example but I'm hoping this group can
point me to others. Specifically, browsing through multiple documents under
a specific category.
Thank you in advance,

interactive interiors: further info

Thank you all for commenting

Nik, Iam waiting for your comments about the IIEED proposal I sent you

Mukesh, interesting link shall dig it more

Angel, the line between an active interior space and another art
installation is one of the possibilities an interior designer can fall into,
my idea was to develop the engagement qualities between the users or
visitors and the space to achieve a more sensory, mind manipulation and
emotional interactive experience.

Good examples of transitions

Hello all,

Have a tabbed interface where a user will be doing work on a tab and
submitting that work. Problem is the tab just goes away and goes to the next
process they are working on and this has the tendency to confuse people.

I am looking for examples of elegant transitions that dont require a person
to to click anything or accept anything but lets them know that that
something has happened and they are moving on.

I have seen some good examples, but need more...
