Is Eye Tracking too expensive or complicated?

Hey All,

I just put together about Eye Tracking
(http://www.insideria.com/2008/04/is-eye-tracking-out-of-reach.html)
but I thought I'd put the question out to the list:

"Why isn't eye tracking used more in design and testing of rich
internet applications?"

I really have no experience with it, but am going to be working with
it this summer so looking for thoughts from some of you more
experienced with usability testing and eye tracking.

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.

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.

Interaction Design methods library

About two years ago I came across a pretty exhaustive list of IxD methods, with advice on when to use them and examples of implementations. It covered prototyping, interviewing, ethnography research, information architecture, sketching, user testing, research analysis and synthesis, etc. - the whole shebang. It was nothing short of amazing, and yet I didn't bookmark it / lost the bookmark. Every few months I try to find it again. Really hoping I didn't dream the whole thing up. I faintly recall it being curated by a school, but that could be a red herring.

Mobile Sites and Breadcrumb Navigation

Hi all -
 
Wondering if anyone has any insight or can point me to information on use of breadcrumb nav with mobile sites. Some sites use it, others appear to rely on a back link (or browser back) and a home link as a hub.

Inserting jQuery into Axure

Do you mean integrate it into the generated HTML prototype, or into
the actual .rp file? I don't think you can do the second - and the
first is obviously a problem because your code would get overwritten
when you re-generated the prototype. I'd recommend coding an
HTML/jQuery prototype outside of Axure if the interactivity is that
important.

Centred Layout Vs Left Aligned

One of those old chestnuts that keeps rearing its head in discussion with client and/or the visual design team.

Left aligned (fixed width) sites are evil right? ;-)

Anyone got any evidence to the contrary?

Love to hear your thoughts.

Desktop GUI prototyping tools...

Hi

Any recommendations on GUI prototyping tools specially for desktop
application prototyping. I could find a good list at
http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?GuiPrototypingTools and am looking at any feedback
on the ones listed or maybe a new tool not listed there but somebody has
used and strongly recommends.

The need is to capture the paper prototypes into higher fidelity prototypes
that can be tested and reviewed before getting commited for actually coding.

Thanks
Pankaj

Prototyping with Adobe CS3

Hi all,
Ever since Thermo came out, I've started paying more attention to Adobe
products and their potential for use in rapid prototyping. Previously, I've
thought of these products as being massive, teetering piles of features that
need to be "integrated" (read: "made even more complex") in order to produce
effective prototypes. But the UXP I saw demonstrated in Thermo has wreaked a
little havoc with my prejudices.

Have any of you worked with the trio of Fireworks, Dreamweaver, & Flash to
do rapid prototyping? What is your process like?
