International Phone Formats

I'm currently working on a form for which a major goal is to save as

Need Help on Web Portal Logins

<discuss at lists.interactiondesigners.com>Hi Guys,

As a part of a startup we are launching a web portal in the domain of
student careers.
During our experience strategy there is an issue that seems to be nudging us

It is observed that logins and sign ups are majorly irritating for users as
it takes their time and needs them to fill up forms etc.
In our application we have some information content and some playful and
functional spaces.....Both are critical to the application as a whole.

Brainwaves as Input Method

A convincing twin of Darth Vader stalks the beige cubicles of a
Silicon Valley office, complete with ominous black mask, cape and
light saber. But this is no chintzy Halloween costume. It's a
prototype, years in the making, of a toy that incorporates brain wave-
reading technology.

Behind the mask is a sensor that touches the user's forehead and
reads the brain's electrical signals, then sends them to a wireless
receiver inside the saber, which lights up when the user is
