Research/paper/insights on Use of mobile technology by Professionals on the move


I'm currently working for an internal paper for my organization.

I need to collect research material on usage of mobile/technology to meet user needs, specifically of professionals that are constantly on the move. I'm also looking for content on behavioural and motivations for such professionals.

Any relative links or cues in this direction will be a great help.

Looking forward for more enriching information.

NYT:Digital Designers Rediscover Their Hands

"Some people thought we were crazy to do this," says Michael Gough, a
vice president for design at Adobe. "But for others, the experience
has started to inform how they work," giving them a better
appreciation of how customers experience Adobe's programs.

My son has never dismantled a bicycle. For me, it used to be an
annual ritual to take the whole thing apart, lovingly clean off the
dirt and grime and make the parts shine, and then put the thing back
together again.

Google SearchWiki

Have you played with Google's new SearchWiki features?


I think Google has done some really nice interaction design on these
new features. They've added some very useful functionality that will
fundamentally change the way we use search.

RE: 'interaction design'? (ADMIN Note; do not reply here)

This posting fell under the "what is IxD?" title which we said we would not
discuss here. However, there are some specific aspects to this question that
after some consultation with others feel is worth a more general discussion
among the open list.
I do however hold the right to decide if the discussion goes way off course
or not and then turn on moderation if necessary.

harnessing technology's potential without being harnessed to technology

Hi All,

Long-time reader, first-time "post-er." Here's my question for all of you:

As interaction designers for the web, we need to at least *understand the capabilities* all of the latest and greatest technologies (e.g., ajax) so that we can use that knowledge to inform our designs and ensure that we are always designing to maximum technological potential.

Hey everyone,

My name is Austin Brown. I am a Senior Industrial Design Student at

Any Ixder's working on physical products inthegroup?

In answer to the original question, I am working on the design of some
physical phone related products and am happy to start a dialogue about that.

In terms of the ipod discussion below...I have an ipod and I love it *in
spite* of the interaction which frankly I often find confusing. Very
frequently, I am hitting the menu button at the wrong time instead of select
and I find the term "Menu" which really means "Back" on an iPod (sometimes)
to be very confusing and difficult to use. Having spoke with others, I know
that I am not alone in this observation.
