E-newsletter usability

I'm thinking that this may have been around the block a few times but I'd like to have to have opinions and links to research, if possible.

We send several short monthly e-newsletters and are redesigning them. The layouts are pretty much the same for all: 2 column, wide on left wtih the right column for links, etc. Our new Web manager wants to have an "In this issue" list in the right column. We-the writers-think that's redundant. Because we use a title link with a short intro, readers will see all the contents, usually. Thanks for your help!

Test protocols for evaluating LCD displays

My current company designs & manufactures embedded devices (handheld
instruments, etc.) My previous experience has been more in Web/Application
design & evaluation.

My current task (a fire drill, really) is to evaluate several display
options to determine which are best for our users. I've never done this
before and envision we'll need to do this again, so am using this exercise
to build a test protocol for evaluating all displays that go into our

My question is have any of you done something similar?

Good design examples of conversion.

I am conducting research on how to best represent a conversion of one
content item to another. Does anyone know of some good design
examples or websites that feature this type of switch? Could be
anything, currency, weight, metric, etc.

Thank you.

Any latest Radio Button interactions with accordion combined??

Hi Folks,

I have a design dilemma and wanted to get thoughts from folks here:

The challenge is that I have 2 radio button and one of the button
when selected has a list that drops down and it is a mini datatable
with 2 columns and a dropdown. This would be okay if the number of
rows remained constant but it changes all the time and can be very
long for a drop down and almost feels like some optical illusion

Any ideas on what is the best/optimal way to address this issue?

Microsoft Sync article in the Seattle Times

There was an interesting article today in the automotive section of
the Seattle Times about Microsoft Sync. It's a set of voice-activated
controls installed in a 2008 Ford Focus. Mark Phelan, the Detroit Free
Press reviewer, thought it worked pretty well (better than the car it
was installed in). Don't know if maybe a few 'softies on this list
might have worked on the project and would like to comment.
