Robust Flowcharts in Adobe CS?

I've been working as an interaction designer for less than a year (student, interning) and have struggled with finding a good tool to use for creating product flows.  Programs like Fireworks and Flash Catalyst are great for making clickable prototypes.  And programs like Visio are decent for creating flowcharts showing the overall organization of an application.  But the two remain largely separated.

Why would you do email verification for people who sign up?

We're having a debate about this.

You could do email verification so that there's something of an audit trail back to a person, but since anyone can set up a new hotmail or gmail at the drop of a hat, does that count for much?

You can do it so that you know it's a working email address, for data quality, although you could just delete non-verified accounts after a period of time.

Consistent Usage of Log In/Log Out versus Login/Logout

Greetings to all!

I have noticed that many sites utilize inconsistent label terminology
for links allowing a user to enter/exit an online account (be it an
e-commerce site, e-mail system, etc.).

I would expect that since these labels describe an action initiated
by the user (rather than a state), verbs and not nouns must be used:
Log In/Log Out, not Login/Logout.

However, often I see the following combination: Login (noun used to
enter) and Log Out (verb used to exit).

In your opinion, what do you think is the best label combination and
why?

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.

Accessibility; font size and color contrast

i'm looking for a tool (or information) regarding accessibility. of course i know the common tools and w3c pages. what i'm looking for is a way to check the combination of fontsize and color-contrast.

tools like Colour contrast Analyzer are nice and helpful, but  i'm absolutely sure contrast can be lower using  - for example -  helvetica/50px/bold instead of times/12px/light/italic.
