Low Cost, Off Site, Remote Testing Options and Strategies

Hi All,

I was wondering if anyone has experience with very low cost, off-site
testing software and strategies.

In the next few months I may have to conduct several off-site
interaction observations but will not be able to travel. At my disposal
are some quiet testing rooms equipped with computers that have web cams.
I'm looking for suggestions of low cost remote testing software that I
could employ to run / record interaction sessions with subjects
remotely.

scientifically-sound random (yet grammatical) text for the users to

Is there a standard?

Best practices for Country location and languages on Global Websites (was Language Picker)

Jason,

Did you read my mind I was just about to send out a similar post.

My line of thought was about best practices on how users select countries and languages on global websites.

A few questions...
Should sites auto detect IP addresses and serve default settings according to country, language?
Should users have ability to chose their preferred country and language preferences off a splash page as in Ikea.com on a first visit (and/or subsequent visits) and have the ability to change at will?

Hi All,
I am looking at a survey similar to the one posted on

That is from 1994. Am looking for something very recent.
If at all you can help me with some information on the usability labs
housed in your companies, it would be a great help!

Thanks,

iPhone sketching tools

Hello everyone,

I’ve been experimenting with a variety of tools & templates for
creating iPhone app designs. Balsamiq is clearly the most “sketchy”
and well-suited to the concept phase. The templates for Omnigraffle,
Fireworks, and Illustrator will create higher fidelity designs.
