Standards for power indication, LEDs?

Anyone know of a standard for power indications on equipment?

Specifically, I'm looking for any international standards that discuss
LED color, state, etc. for when a device is:

1) Connected to mains and ON

2) Connected to mains and OFF

3) Connected to mains and POWER SAVING

If there are standard iconography for these things, I'd like to know
about the references as well...

Interview with 9 kids, 12-years-old, Sweden - results

I used iMindMap (available for both Mac and Windows). It's not free, though
- I had to pay for it - and it's not too cheap, either (but not extremely
expensive). For me it's worth it though, despite some things that could be
improved (and the new version they just got out seems promissing)

Overall, the best on the market, I think.

eCommerce Search and Product Availability

Hi all,

I am trying to locate any studies or papers that indicate how people
use search on an ecommerce site to determine the availability of a

Our company is bouncing back and forth between two scenarios, and I am
looking for information that will sway it to the most relevant one.

Scenario 1: Person types in a search term. The site returns results.
Person then refines their search by size. Resulting page shows
everything in that size, including items that are sold out. Sold out
items show "sold out" next to item image.

Scenario 2: Person types in a search term.

Do we really need to use Vowels to call ourselves a Designer?

Or, put another way:

D w rlly nd t s vwls t cll rslves dsgnr?

After all, we've seen the successful removal of vowels from sites like Flickr (though it's true they just didn't want to pay the extra dollar for the 'e' -- the life of cost-cutting startups).

But, do I as a dsgnr have to really invest in understanding and using vowels on a regular basis? Is it really important for me to dsgn ntrctns?

I contend that vowels only get in the way of good ntrctn dsgn, so I'm thinking nt.
