Working in the US

Hi all

I'm considering relocating to the States and really not sure about the visa issue. Does anybody know if it's very difficult for British passport holders to get a work visa in the states? What is the procedure? Can we apply by ourselves or must have a company to apply for us?

Any advice and sharing of experience will be much appreciated.

Regards

Christina

Writing Interaction Documentation for iOS

I've completed the UI and UX design for an iPad app and now it's time to hand everything off for development and I was wondering if there were any best practices for documenting the interaction design for the developer. Our dev is in house, so I can just pop over and talk to him, but I think documentation would be best for workflow.  

If you've had experience documenting interaction design for iOS in the past, please share. 

Cheers, 

Emmett

Can an Activity Feed be a Pull rather than a Push?

I'm looking at various UI patterns for activity feeds to inform my designs for a SAAS application and a development parameter is that this feed can only be refreshed by the user by either a page refresh or a refresh button or icon. Is this a valid element for an activity feed (a pull rather than a push of information to the user)?
