Fwd: search results display

This may be a stupid question but it leaves me stumped!

Why does google (and other search engines) display the url under each search
result? I mean, it's already hyperlinked to the search result title, right?
Why spend extra line space for each result? Does it help the user to know
the url of the page he may go to?
Any answers?

Interaction Awards - Why Are There Fees for Entry?

Since the launch of the Interaction Awards last week, a few people have asked us why there are fees for entry, and where all of that money goes. The answer is simple: the entry fees are in place to fund the Awards program itself, and to create a new platform within IxDA for recognizing tangible examples of design excellence.

The scope of the Interaction Awards is ambitious. The impact of our growing field is wide and diverse, and it is our mission to reach beyond our community to demonstrate the value of interaction design within the global economy. Creating this conversation on an international scale requires commitment, logistics, infrastructure, and, well, travel. It’s these things, and hopefully a lot more, that your entry fees will support.

Looking for great concept videos


I'm exploring the use of concept videos in communicating product and
user experience concepts to executives and product stakeholders.

There was this series of concept video that I saw somewhere on the
Internet about a year or two before. Unfortunately, I can't quite
remember the details of it.

There were about five short video clips. Each clip narrated a usage
scenario. They featured real actors but with their face masked by a
white oval. The product concept was related to smart homes and green

If you know what I'm talking about, please let me know.
