To use a colon or not to use a colon after field labels

Could anyone help me on the subject of whether to use colons after field
labels. I have found one accessibility paper and a few other
not-so-respected sources that indicate that colons after field labels
help screen reader users, as well as normal vision users, to expect an
input field. However, after years of including colons after field
labels, our copy dept now maintains that a colon is punctuation and
shouldn't be included after field labels. I've also found Jarrett's, "No
one cares about colons but UX people" and Luke W doesn't mention it in
his book :(.

Looking for great examples of customer reviews for ecommerce.

Hi,    I'm looking to collect some best practice examples to feed into a ratings and reviews project I'm working on for an ecommerce site in the UK. Can you think of any great examples - maybe something you've seen or something you've done you wouldn't mind sharing. 

  Thanks in advance for your help.   Cheers

Prototyping vs annotated wireframe deliverable

I am wondering if it is possible to create annotated wireframes with a browser chrome or a device around the UI that can be viewed in an annotated deliverable but then be able to remove the chrome/device in the prototype version of the same wireframe file. I.e. Maybe put the device/chrome in a layer that can be turned off when the prototype is generated? Anyone have ideas which programs may be able to do this?

Difference between Heuristic Evaluation and Expert Review

Hi all,

In Heuristic evaluation, evaluator evaluates design with reference of
design principles to find out the usability issues.
How “Expert Review” is different from this? Is there any major
difference or it’s the same?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Branding - including .com in logo/name?

Hi folks,

This isn't necessarily IX, but maybe it is. I have a client who is working
on a new app, a portal. Let's say the name is "DirtyChicken". Their logo is
a simple logotype of "DirtyChicken.com"

I've always wondered if the ".com" is necessary in the logo - particularly
because it isn't .net or .org - .com being the most popular. It seems to me
that successful sites brand themselves as what they are indistinct from the
web address (even though the name is the same).

Responsive Product Comparison Chart

We are currently working on creating responsive designs for a web site which provides/sells service-based products. The client wants the designs based off their desktop experience. One of the pages compares the service features in a side-by-side column format. Looks great in the desktop view but it not going to work in the smart phone view.
