can we make it to easy?

I was reading about Microsoft having recruited Adobe's (think
photoshop UI and more) Mark Hamburg to work on user experience. I
don't find Adobe product o be particularly user friendly, but I do
find them to be consistent and remarkably efficient once you get over
a learning curve. I appreciate that approach a lot. I found my self
wondering if, for professional tools, there is greater adoption,
product loyalty and stickiness in leaving a certain amount of

do users understand the terms "ascending" and "descending"?


My team have been discussing how to word the labels presented to non-sighted users for sortable table headers.

The terms "ascending" and "descending" are popping up like gophers. My instinct is that parsing these terms requires a lot of work on the users' part, so I'd prefer to use labels like  "A-Z", "0-9" and "newest first". Naturally, I'm getting some pushback from my development team, since this requires a different label depending on the data type of the column.

hosting provider for design firm recommendations


I am looking for a new web hosting provider for my business site.  I currently use ipower but they put a limit on email storage. When your mail box is full they do not notify you.   I've had mails bouncing with no notification to me that my mail was getting close to the limit.  My mail fills pretty quickly as people are typically sending files without any notice to give them an alternative method for sending.  I'm looking for a hosting provider that does not limit the size of your mailbox.  

Any advice appreciated.

wireframes to line up just so.

help you get there.
