WebKit HTML5 wrapper for Google Gears

Folks here were wondering about compatibility of client-side data storage
implementations between (Apple) WebKit and (Google) Gears. It turns out be
extremely simple:

XSRF - cross-site request forgery (was: Keyurbsorathia wants to share Favorites with you)

(Maybe not the right list... but good to know)
It is actually a minor case of XSRF attack (cross-site request forgery).

The link above is a google search but it might have been transfer X
amount of money to Y. That's of course will work If your bank is
stupid enough (some are) to allow *significant and predictable*
action by HTTP request, and you're happen to be logged into your bank
account (in a different tab maybe?).

This attack is "statistic", but an attacker can send endless number
of emails.

Single Search Field v.s. Modal Searchbox? Research?

Hi all,
Designing a search component for a travel site that requires you to search.
Can search by city/state, address, point of interest, airport . . . the
usual stuff.

Some travel sites default to a searchbox defaulted to the fields for city.
If the user wants to search by airport or by point of interest they have to
select another mode or tab on the searchbox to get those fields. My
contention is that people get a lot of error messages because they put in
say a point of interest without seeing the mode tab (we know they get a lot
of error messages at this step).

"Narcissism of small difference"

So what's the idea behind ''Massive Change'' [1]?

Bruce Mau: There's a design revolution coming out of North America. It dares
to imagine the welfare of the entire human race.

You mean, like the iPod?

Bruce Mau: No. It's not interesting to me. One of the most important things
we did was take the visual out of design.


Let's hear it from the Canadians, anyone seen it yet? Posturing?

User Acceptance Tests (UAT) as inroads for User Experience

Has anyone been able to get usability engineering into a software
development process by becoming involved in the User Acceptance Testing?

Many applications are developed in my company, which is a large
financial corporation. During our software development process there is
no requirement for user experience or usability involvement. (There is
little chance right now of adding more requirements to the development
process, such as heuristic evaluations or usability testing; our
developers will accept no more requirements.

Does User Experience Save/Make Money?

So, try as I might, being a new UX developer, I'm trying to find reputable data about reputable companies who saved/made [insert actual dollar figure], and how usability testing was responsible. I was actually told at work today that "there is no way you can prove that usability testing makes money." It's a personal challenge now. Smile

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?

How do you avoid canned designs?


When you work on two sites that that share the same goals, top tasks
and audience; would try to come up with THE optimal architecture and
interactions for both and just play around with their
aesthetics/branding to make them look different? or would you
experiment with each of them until they end up with different layouts
that work?

This is becoming an issue with some of my projects, since I keep
reusing layouts that worked.
