Digital/Interactive TV usability & interaction design

Hey folks,

I am looking for software to use in testing TV-applications, does anyone
have any experience in conducting digital/interactive TV tests?

Are there any good books or references about digital/interactive TV interaction
So far, I haven't found any and I am wondering how the existing applications
were designed, what criteria for user-centered design were followed, what
guidelines etc..
Obviously more and more interactive TV applications are being created and

Articles etc on interface structures

I'm writing some workshop material on high-level structures for
interfaces - explaining different high-level patterns that an interface
may use (e.g. linear, two/three panels, canvas plus tools, dashboards etc)

the high-level structure.

Any ideas for articles or references?

Mocking up applications for the iPhone

Hi everyone,

I'm a student currently learning about Interaction Design, on Exchange from Canada in Germany. A group that I am working with is developing an iPhone application aimed at helping cancer patients organize a wide variety of tasks and self-care needs that come with the disease. I have worked on projects with the iPhone before, as an intern and developer. I don't have any experience though mocking up the application on the iPhone, without going through the process of actually building it.
