Scroll-wheel friendly select dropdown/combobox

I realize that the select dropdown version of a listbox (or a combo-box if
you can edit it as well) has been around for a very very very long time.
Scroll-wheel mice now are at least 7 years old in mass-production so you
would think in that time the selectbox/combobox would have been changed to
have some new behaviors to match the needs of a the almost ubiquitous
(outside Mac) use of a scroll-wheel mouse.

What's the problem you might add. Well ... it has to do with the way a
combobox retains its focs after onChange.

Forrester First Look at Convergence Fact and Fallacy

Some recent thoughts from the guys I keep an eye on.

Research & Event Highlights From Forrester
07 March 2005


Convergent Technologies, Divergent Devices

Convergence has been a popular topic for years. The term has scared
executives into bad mergers (anyone remember the $2 BILLION that
Disney lost after buying Infoseek?). We hear about the convergence of
TVs and PCs, voice and data, media and distribution, marketing and
customer service, content and advertising -- and more.

web design (and frames)

Frames and web applications

At DCTM we used frames (7 of them) in our application. Oy! Did they ever
cause problems. I can go over the list but that would be too long.

Bookmarking and search WERE even in an internal enterprise application
issues that had to be delt with. Of course there are probably other
applications where these wouldn't be issues, so I'll concede, "it depends".

My main point of my post is in a relatively stable xHTML world ... Why
bother anyway?

Where can I get Flash maps of US, including counties/districts?

I was looking at the NYTimes.com's and CNN.com's voting results displayed on
interactive Flash maps.

Is there any software or plug-ins of the United States offered in
Illustrator or Flash, that outlines each
states and their respective counties?

Does anyone know anyone who works at the NYTimes or CNN online whom I could
contact to ask?

Re: [IxDA] Suggestions, Examples or Patterns for a Touchscreen Radio Button / Binary Control?

Working on iPhone for the past year, the touchscreen binary control is a switch that is labelled on or off. Or, if you need to explain in more detail, a two-part segmented control works, too. Descriptions of both are listed in the Apple documentation. http://developer.apple.com/library/ios/navigation/index.html

Anyone knows Public space / architecture IXD best practices, or examples?

The participation in urban design and architecture projects had some
"utopian" developments in the 70's mainly due to computer developments
but since then this practices had been reduced until the latest years
where we can seen again some interest from citizens and technicians in
application of this kind of practices.

In my point of view the IXD have a very important role in these
developments, but I don't know best practices or examples.
Dan Saffer in "designing for interaction" refers very well the
importance of IXD not only for digital screen solutions or
