List ordering: alphabetical vs. logical?

Does anyone know of any studies, tests, or standards of practice that
discuss when to organize a list of items in alphabetical order vs.
another designed order (such as one based on expected frequency of
use)?

I'm most interested in this topic for web site navigation, but
applicable references for other contexts (e.g. menu design in desktop
applications) would also be appreciated.

Thanks,

Dmitry

Question about streamlining Axure prototypes, Feb 3

Hello,
I'm generating an Axure prototype that's morphed quite a bit over time.
How can I clean up the prototype folder to get rid of unused files and
folders?
I don't see a "Clean up/remove unused files" feature on Axure.
Does one do this manually?

Thanks!
Gloria

Blackberry Storm

I stopped by the Verizon booth in the mall the other day to try out a
Blackberry Storm, the new one with the touchscreen. I'm a current Verizon
customer, and my antique Moto Razor is about to do the El Croako. I'd heard
the Storm had a good browser and a great screen for viewing media. Since
Verizon has treated me pretty well and I've no complaints about their
service, I was curious about their new phone.

The guy at the booth let me play with theirs. I tried typing on it, and was
not very successful.

LiveScribe Pulse Pen

Anyone else use the livescribe pen? Looks like pretty cool
> > technology. Is it worth the $$?

Also second Chauncey and and Michael's posts.

I've been using the LiveScribe pen since it first shipped and have been very
happy with it. Personally, note taking in usability tests and meetings had
been problematic. I could never scribble fast enough.

With the pen, I'm able to relax and know that all the audio is being
recorded, plus I always have the option of starting and stopping the
recording.
