interface standards - the CE space

Dave Collins makes an excellent point regarding consumer electronics:
> In the case of stereo equipment, the companies are still jockeying for
> position, and whether they like it or not, the interface to their device

Top firms take on the impossible. Re-designing theBloomberg interface

Interesting makeovers... aesthetically, at least.

Functionally, however, I would expect it to be a different story.

It is difficult to tell who these designs are actually targetted at. The functionality displayed in these design concepts, and how they are visually executed, appear targeted at first-time or ocassional users of Bloomberg terminals, as well as individual investors (who would not be paying the $1800
per month subscription fee). For new or ocassional users, these interfaces would definitely seem more intuitive, less uncluttered and easier to learn.

neat little JS app mocking an iPhone


The behavior needs some tweaking, but to me there are a few things in
there relevant to the "animation" threads.

Personally, I still think "designing transitions" is a lot more
palatable than talking about "animations" when it comes to IxD, but
that's me.

Anyway, the example is interesting, built using YUI components so it
is totally takeable.

What's your job title?

Hi, I'm new to the forum but not new to usability!

Drag-select convention

Anyone know what the convention or solution is for
allowing a user to select a bunch of objects in a
drawing application via box-select, where the start of
the drag is on an object that is not to be selected.


I have a map-based drawing application where many
thousands of zones are drawn by the user.

When manipulating these zones, using standard mouse
gestures, it is particularly difficult to deal with
performing a box-select operation, because there is no
background to click on...it is covered with zones.

The common result is that when the user does
box-select a set of zones, a
