Telecom Self Service (Web & Mobile)

Hi Everyone.

I am doing an impossible research. Currently I am trying to find out how all the different telecom self-service portals work. As it's almost impossible for me to be a customer for all mobile carrier (around the world), I am asking the community to help.

This thread can act as a resrouce gathering for pattern study in telecom self-service. (if we manage to gather enough screenshots) I think this would be benefitial to everyone as this is not just a portal, not just a website, but more of a service design on the web.

Showing User-Entered vs. Default Values in a form

I'm working with a client that has a consumer-based application to provide energy-saving tips.  There is a long questionnaire, so the system uses a lot of intelligent defaults based on what utility and third-party information the system has access to, as well as local, regional, and national averages.  

So, at first glance, the user fills out a handful of fields and gets energy-saving tips and savings estimates.  But, the more fields that they fill out with real information, instead of the defaults, the better the estimates.

Usability testing software for Mac?

Hi everyone,

My company's working on a new Mac product that we will be doing usability
testing on. We use Morae for our Windows products and like the features it
provides.

We're looking to find something comparable for testing Mac software. We are
doing testing on-site, so remote testing software is not necessary.
However, we would like reliable screen capture. Remote observer capability
and real-time marking/flagging would also be nice to haves. For those who
have experience with testing Mac software, would you be able to share your
experiences and process?

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.

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?

UX Certification?

So I've been asked at work to research UX Certification programs. While I'm
glad that an interest is being taken, I feel to a certain extent that the
whole certification thing is outdated. I'd rather just go to one of
Adaptive Path's UX Intensives (http://www.adaptivepath.com/events/2009/uxi/),
but because no 'certification' is involved, it's not even being considered.
Does anybody know of any programs out there? Anything worthwhile? Cooper
offers certification but they are very vague about what it entails...

Loan Calculator

Scenario: A loan calculator (for amounts under $50,000 / £25,000)

Option A:
Two sliders (with associated input fields) one for total amount,
second for duration.
Moving the sliders affects a results panel which shows amount
repayable per month & total cost of loan.

Option B:
Three sliders, as option A but this time also including a 'monthly
amount' slider. Moving 'amount' and 'duration' moves the 'monthly
amount' automatically.

Pros and Cons of Wireframing tools

Hi All,

My team is evaluating wireframing tools, and I would love to get some
feedback from this list. Things tend to be leaning towards Visio at the
moment. Being a designer, I'm not too thrilled at the idea of using
Visio.
