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.

Its Just UX

During the closing plenary of the IA Summit on Sunday, Jesse James
Garrett said that “Information Architecture is not a profession …
and neither is Interaction Design … we have and always will be User
Experience Designers”. I’m paraphrasing a little from memory (the
podcast isn’t out yet) - but the gist is there.

I’m a big believer in this viewpoint (and I chaired the IA Summit
last year!).

Next & previous button order

As discussed by LukeW in Web Form Design, it's best to have the primary
action of a form be the first button that the user sees. For left-to-right
languages this means having the primary action on the left and any secondary
actions on the right (see A in this illustration

Distinguishing between UCD, UX, and usability

A friend and sometimes client told me over lunch this week, "I think
of you as the usability guy." I didn't much care for this, because
I think of usability in terms of activities rather than an identity
to aspire to. It got me thinking about related terms, like "user
experience" (UX), and its cousin, user-centered design (UCD).

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?

Searching for UX principles for designing an Arabic language website

I'm sat here in Doha [Qatar] in the middle of a week of user-testing an English/Arabic travel website. One concern for our design approach is to not just "flip the text RTL" for the Arabic translation. We'd really like to actually do something meaningful for the Arabic version [yes, its early in the project and our hopes flourish].

Primarily I'm trying to find UX principles for designing an Arabic language website. From both Western and Arabic-based UX practitioners. Articles, thoughts and examples on designing Arabic language websites.
