Dashboard for non-trending data?

I've been tasked with designing an interface for an application that reports on SQL and Sharepoint data. I'd like the default home page of the application to present some sort of summary information, and I thought a dashboard would not only jazz things up a bit (I've also been asked to try to make reporting 'sexy' - not an easy feat!), but also provide an entry point for newer users.

However, dashboards tend to lend themselves to trend-type data, or reports that generate simple numerical results such as 'number of databases: 24'.

what won't be I*offshore* outsourced

I would change "literally" to "virtually", but otherwise I agree.

In my previous post, I was referring to offshore outsourcing.

iPhone usability tests

User Centric released a summary of the results of their early
usability study they performed on the iPhone. I liked how the keyboard
while "frustrating" performed better than comparable systems. The list
of strengths was a longer than its weaknesses.

Take a look.

Starting week 2 and my current response to on the street queries to
"do you like it?"
"It has the same number of problems as any other phone smart or
otherwise I have owned, but 10x's the enjoyment.

the latest issue of the International Journal of Design
(http://www.ijdesign.org/) has this interesting article that
introduces a human-centered design approach -- the Three-in-One User
Study -- which applies a set of methods to speed up and focus on the
design process.
