Issues with iPhone update 2.0

Has anyone else lost their contacts, photos and calendar on their
phone but not on mac? I have tried all the "work arounds" on
apple.com and mobileme to push contacts but no joy. I contacted
iPhone tech support and await their reply.

Target ratios for skill sets or roles

clarification.

At work (software company), we're wondering about the "typical" ratio of developers to usability staff. I may as well go whole hog and do a proper survey.

Is this an appropriate list of roles?

- Interface/interaction designers.
- Usability testers.
- Software developers.
- QA-testers.
- Technical communicators.
- Product managers.
- Development managers.
- Project managers.
- Subject-matter experts (customer domain, not software).

Please e-mail me any missing roles. I'll set up a survey and then invite you all to respond.

"Narcissism of small difference"

So what's the idea behind ''Massive Change'' [1]?

Bruce Mau: There's a design revolution coming out of North America. It dares
to imagine the welfare of the entire human race.

You mean, like the iPod?

Bruce Mau: No. It's not interesting to me. One of the most important things
we did was take the visual out of design.

Microsoft Sync article in the Seattle Times

There was an interesting article today in the automotive section of
the Seattle Times about Microsoft Sync. It's a set of voice-activated
controls installed in a 2008 Ford Focus. Mark Phelan, the Detroit Free
Press reviewer, thought it worked pretty well (better than the car it
was installed in). Don't know if maybe a few 'softies on this list
might have worked on the project and would like to comment.

Two-factor Authentication and Biometrics

Hi,

Out of curiosity, has anybody implemented two-factor authentication
using biometrics (e.g., fingerprint, voice, etc.) as the second
factor?

Thanks!
