Email/Newsletter testing tools

Hi all,

Looking for some of your best suggestions for tools used to test email content formatting.
Should be for both browsers and mobile devices.
Litmus is great and offers a variety of browsers and device comparisons, but I'm looking for other options here.

IXD 2013 > Slide decks for the speaker's presentation

At the conference this year, the speakers said not to worry about taking pictures b/c the conference would make the presentations available after then conference. So, I didn't take any slide photos, just notes. Now, I haven't received any follow-up information on where to get access. Where can attendees get the slides?!

Also, I heard that IXD would be offering videos of each of the presentations. So attendees could also see presentations they may have missed due to scheduling conflicts.

Information on day and night modes for iPad

Hey everyone,

We are currently working on an iPad app for pilots that will require different viewing modes for day and night. We are aware of the built-in feature that iPads have, but are curious about common practices and conventions that may exist in regards to this sort of design. Does anyone have any idea where we should be looking for information on this?

Who's in charge of "strategy"?

I am from South Korea and studying new media advertising in the U.S. I am really confused about the UX career responsibilities. There are so many titles such as planning, UX, research, usability and human factors. Is there a difference between planning and UX and research and usability and human factors – or is it all the same job?
