Looking for Usability Recruiting Firms in Western Europe

We are working on a project that plans to start testing in Germany,
France, Spain, Austria and Belgium specifically and I was hoping to
get some good recommendations on usability recruiting firms in those
countries. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

How to define heuristics specific to a system ?



We are currently working on complex systems unificating various interfaces. Various modules (physical and interfaces) are interacting together, like in a train, car or plane.

Each module thus have its own goals and dedicated tasks.

To reproduce our analysis and communicate comparable results we would like to develop heuristics grids specific to each sub system, based on Nielsen's and Bastien&Scapin's ones, but including task oriented criterias.

Magic Wish #2 for IxDA

Local groups are great. There are a lot of people who are working hard
to bring interaction designers and other interested folks together
locally on a regular basis.

Wouldn't it be great if local groups had a dedicated space that
brought events, discussions, and jobs into a local-centric space?
Wouldn't it be great if ixda.org could expand the ability of local
groups to communicate & collaborate?

Your wish is about to be granted:

Launch is set for 5 days and counting!

Specialized search forms - examples?


I am currently working on designing search forms for adverts service.

There are 4 main categories: houses, cars, jobs, holidays&travel. I am
looking for examples of good, usable search forms of these categories and
any advices.

My plan is to give users classic Google-style text-box search on 1st place,
specialized search form (with possibility of e.g. defining desired cubic
capacity of car's engine and so on) on the 2nd and additionaly link to very
detailed search form with some extra options. There is still a lot of
questions about details of each section, though.

Apparently, the signal bars on a mobile phone don't mean much

Is an interface component like this useful even if it is not very
meaningful? What if the signal bars were eliminated completely?
