Trust and URLs

I am fishing for some information about general public and URLs
structures.

Here is an example for me to ask my question:

Say there is a domain name of ‘fruit.com’. They deal with the general
public (not B2B).
‘Fruit.com’ wants to set up a site called ‘pear.com’.
When someone types in ‘pear.com’ they are redirected to
‘fruit.com/pear’.

Any repercussions from the users/visitors? Trust issues? Confusion?
Don’t notice?

Thanks

Breadcrumb trail at the bottom of the browser window

Inspired by the recent Cuil discussion I've made a breadcrumb trail that's
always visible at the bottom of your browser window.
I'm testing it on an intranet where:

• users spend anywhere from five minutes to several hours every day

• there are thousands of pages in many folders, etc

• the built-in navigation scheme isn't always consistent, due to different
products/portals/systems being used

Lessons so far:

• with just one consistent navigation item at the bottom of the viewport,
it's easier to leave out all those top, left and right menus and concentrate

Indicators for cells with multiple values in a datagrid

Hello, IxDers,

I need to indicate that specific cell in a read-only datagrid contains not
one, but multiple values. Putting the cell in focus would reveal the values
in it.

The project team have suggested displaying "Multiple..." link in the cell.
Clicking the link would open a popup showing the values.

iSIC: information through music

I found this very intriguing:

iSIC is short for information music. It is a unique research project
which explores the use of musical rules as a way to convey
information. iSIC is a monitoring system, sort of a baby sitter for
big complex systems. The complex system could be a large network, a
server farm or a nuclear facility. iSIC lets operators mind the
activities of systems through precisely mapped sounds which play
pleasantly in the background. To achieve this the sounds are expressed
as a musical paradigm.
