Why did gmail take away the checkmark in their checkboxes?

I find this to be rather confusing. The first few times I used the new gmail design, I kept clicking on my checkboxes. Rows were highlighting and unhighlighting, but I didn't understand what was happening. Then I noticed that the last one I selected had this litte, tiny 1 pxl border color change around the checkmark itself--I suppose to indicate that this was the last item I had selected.

Interaction Design Exercises (Amazon's Gold Box)

I have four guesses.

1. Same as Dave. An awareness tool to show people that there's more than
books and CDs on Amazon.
2. A clearance tool for items that are glutting up the warehouse.
3. A research tool to gauge what types of items customers are -really-
interested in.

optimized keyboards(lay-outs) target users?


there has been a discussion here on who might be target user of redesigned
optimized keyboards (lay-outs) here: professional typist or the one who is
about to get familiar with typing with keyboards?! that is if I'm optimizing
a keyboard in user centred design process, which of those two should be the
one who gets involved in UCD iterative process and gathering feedbacks. One
side says: if a professional typist could type with some optimized lay-out
well, then the one with less knowledge of computer should enter text well
too; the other side says vice versa.

RE: [IxDA] Should I stay or should I go?

In a situation where an employee that announces their intent to leave A, then remains because they were offered terms that matched or exceeded their offer from B, two interpersonal outcomes are typical. In the first, A's management views the employee as a more valuable individual. Apart from the increased money, the individual feels more appreciated and everyone is happy. Unfortunately, it's been my experience that more typically A's management feel cornered into matching B's offer; and from that point on no longer completely trust the employee.

HELP: Need to recruit quickly for user-research


I'm looking for someone who can point me to a kick-butt recruitment agency
to help me get people for some validation work I'm doing right now (maybe
again in the future). The main issue is numbers and timing. I don't want to
put too many details in this message.

Experience with the business side of the financial community is a big plus.

We will actually be supplying a whole lot of the contacts and can supply you
with a good chunk of background information.
