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?

Forms design - I'm researching and need help

Where are we on forms design today?

How far have we come on designing effective, intuitive, intelligent web forms? I'm researching forms design, both best practice and the more innovative ones. But I'm having a hard time finding really good examples.

HiOscar the insurance company is one example with some innovative qualities and certainly worth a study. But I'm searching for more advanced forms with higher complexity.

Software/Hardware for UX Designer

Hello, 

We're starting to build the case/need for a UX designer internally; however, I need to provide a list of anticipated software/hardware requirements. Might anyone have any insight as to what items might be basic for a new UX designer? Mac or PC? 

Thanks!

Interaction Design vs Interactive Design

Hi Folks,

I am trying to understand and there are some confusion between the two. Are they the same field of design? Is there a clearly defined difference between the two?

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.

Interaction Design Career Path

Hi all.... I can't remember whether there was a conversation about career
paths in our realm, so I thought I would start one. Currently I am a senior
IxDer and starting to plot out my career path. Would love to hear from
those who were in my shoes before that made the transition to the next step.
I'm curious as to not only your personal view on the career path, but the
employers' view on career paths in this realm too.
TIA,
David

Hi all, I'm new to this discussion group and have been a systems
developer/web developer for quite a while. I only recently heard the term
"Interaction Design" used to refer to those doing interface design.

So, my question immediately was. what's the difference?

Best practices for time out (log out) warning

For a web-based password-protected site with sensitive information, the user
usually is logged out after a period of inactivity. (In part, this is to
prevent others from seeing/changing the data on their screen, if the user is
on coffee break.) Ideally, the user would be warned before the time-out,
with an option to extend the time.

What are the best practices for this time-out warning?

Note that the user may have multiple browser windows/tabs open (with other
web sites) or may be working in a desktop application. Should they be
interrupted or not?

Sites with good examples of bad UIs?

I hesitate to ask this, because I have lost hours wandering around in such
sites, but anyway:
I'd appreciate recommendations for sites that analyze/discuss/make fun of
bad UI designs. Examples are www.buigallery.com*, http://www.baddesigns.com,
etc. I know I have seen others but I'm not remembering/finding them at the
moment.

Thanks,

Al
