==========

Convergent Technologies, Divergent Devices

Convergence has been a popular topic for years. The term has scared
executives into bad mergers (anyone remember the $2 BILLION that
Disney lost after buying Infoseek?). We hear about the convergence of
TVs and PCs, voice and data, media and distribution, marketing and
customer service, content and advertising -- and more.

How to best prototype RIAs?

Hello,

I am searching for a suitable way to prototype a business application which will most likely be implemented either using Adobe Flex or Silverlight.

The application will probably use such functionalities like drag&drop, calendars to select a specfic date or a date range and several kinds or charts etc.

Examples of UI fading in and out over content?

I'm a bit curious about the emergence of a pattern in recent years.

In embedded Flash movie players it has become pretty common to see
player controls (play, ff, rw, etc.) fade out after some time of
inactivity or mouse out, and fade back in on action, mousein, etc.
We can also see this when you use a quicktime player in full screen
mode.

The benefits of creating a seamless way to shift focus are obvious.

I was wondering if anyone could add a few more examples of when a UI
changes opacity to shift focus from control to consume? Or for any
other reason? Other examples than web?

Cheers.

/- impacts of 'address verification systems' on online forms

>From a user point of view, yes, complexity will always increase
abandonment rates, however one of your stakeholders is the business
and if it keeps the data "clean" and data maintenance costs down
then that benefit has to come into the pro and con equation.

Validation and verification CAN help a user fix simple typos and
assure the User that the address has been entered correctly.
