Blackberry Storm

I stopped by the Verizon booth in the mall the other day to try out a
Blackberry Storm, the new one with the touchscreen. I'm a current Verizon
customer, and my antique Moto Razor is about to do the El Croako. I'd heard
the Storm had a good browser and a great screen for viewing media. Since
Verizon has treated me pretty well and I've no complaints about their
service, I was curious about their new phone.

The guy at the booth let me play with theirs. I tried typing on it, and was
not very successful.

Using laptop touchpad as gesture controller

Has anyone tried developing PC based prototype for touch gesture UI
using laptop touchpad?

The problem situation is:
The laptop touchpad record the movement as relative, so if I move my
finger from left to right on touchpad, the mouse cursor reaches the
right edge of the monitor.
Then when I lift the finger on touchpad and start scrolling left to
right again, I would like the mouse cursor to reposition itself to the
left of my monitor screen.

So, I was interested to know if anybody know how can we re-calibrate
the laptop touchpad to respond in Absolute terms and not relative to
the previ

User Acceptance Tests (UAT) as inroads for User Experience

Has anyone been able to get usability engineering into a software
development process by becoming involved in the User Acceptance Testing?

Many applications are developed in my company, which is a large
financial corporation. During our software development process there is
no requirement for user experience or usability involvement. (There is
little chance right now of adding more requirements to the development
process, such as heuristic evaluations or usability testing; our
developers will accept no more requirements.

ADMIN: Invites from Social Networks

Today an invite went out to the IxDA Discussion list inviting people
to a social network on behalf of a subscriber.

I haven't spoken to this subscriber yet, but I am going to assume the
following. They said invite everyone in my Gmail contact list unaware
of the fact that their contact list consists of everyone they have
ever written an email to including discussion lists like this one.

Ok, yes, the person didn't want to do this, but they did and they have
to be responsible for it.

principles of content placement hierarchy?


Sorry if this is not the right way to start a new thread. I'm new to this
site, and couldn't find a way to start a new topic. I know the summary
sounds somewhat cryptic, but I'm not sure how else to put this. I know each
website has its own requirements, but I'm wondering if anyone out there has
any "industry standards" (ie Jakob Nielsen, etc.) for "best practice"
principles of layout in terms of where to place content on a page according
to how important it is to the user. For example, I have a client who has 2
"functions" he wants on his homepage...
