From Personal Computers to Personal Information Environments: Apple's "MobileMe"?

Just watched the WWDC 2008 (I know, I know, iPhone3D... half the
price.... but that's not the point I want to bring to the table) and I
personally think one of the most interesting services introduced in
the keynote was the new .mac, now called "MobileMe"

"You might have a Mac at home, a PC at work, and an iPhone or iPod
touch. The challenge is keeping multiple devices always in sync.
Enterprises can use a server like Exchange.

Any suggestions for design training for a beginner?

I¡¯m a Year 3 student in a business school. However, I want to apply
a graduate program of interaction design.

I have only a year before application and decide to learn by myself.
Some knowledge can be acquired by reading books and articles. But
I'm really confused about how to practice "design".

As far as I know, design relates painting, photography, expression of
color and material etc. I had learned painting for 6 years, 2 years
for sketch.

Best UI you ever used

Hi everyone,

today I happened to find a thread on UXExchange titled "The best UI you have ever used...?"

While the thread isn't as insightful as I hoped, I thought to throw that question at you guys. Guess we agree that this is mostly about sentiment and not quite measurable :-)

Since we want to maybe learn something, it would be nice to submit some rationale, too. And to further narrow it down, please stick to web-based UIs.

Designs for a happy life

Toasters, clock-radios, vacuum cleaners - everyday devices, found in
everyday homes. So how do manufacturers make us buy more of what we
already have?

I did not pledge!

Just kidding!! :-)

Of course I pledged! I would not be without the daily ramblings of all you
grumpy old mac-apologists!
Seriously, this is a great resource and I read and learn from it daily.

Since I'm an ignoramus from the back-woods, I thought that "pledge" ment
"promise". That we were supposed to pay regularly. I expect you consider
introducing an annual membership fee at some time? I would absolutely
support that.

What to do when linking to documents?

Hello IxDers,

I would like to know from you what you use to do in these situations

The option I thought were opening in a new window or to force the download
of the file.
Opening in new windows are almost a standard but what about big files?
Many times happened to me to click on a pdf file and my browser stop
responding because of that.
Someone said that maybe I should offer both options...

something like "name of the document [PDF - 345kb] save | open "

But that still have problems with accessibility ( link's should have meaning
even without being in a context)

I have been try
