list SPAM last night

Hi Everybody.

It looks like we somehow got a bout of spam in the discussions last night.  I've deleted it all and blocked the user, and I'm looking into how that could have happened so that we can fix whatever hole they used to get in.

Really sorry that happened, stay tuned for an update and a fix for this issue.

You might, but I don't, and neither do many of my friends. I either
buy/rip physical CDs or buy MP3 or FLAC files directly from artists,
record labels, or amazon.com.

Mobile app with Video?

Can anyone suggest good iPhone (or iPad or any mobile) apps with video - ideally instructional video.

Jamie Oliver's 20 Minute Meals is a good example, or Nike Women Training Club.

Yup, u b right ... But ...

I think that there is definitely a trend to be moving in this direction.
This can't just happen. We have to earn our stripes and we need to work with
the best allies we can find in the organization.

Best UI you ever used

Hi everyone,

today I happened to find a thread on UXExchange titled "The best UI you have ever used...?"

While the thread isn't as insightful as I hoped, I thought to throw that question at you guys. Guess we agree that this is mostly about sentiment and not quite measurable :-)

Since we want to maybe learn something, it would be nice to submit some rationale, too. And to further narrow it down, please stick to web-based UIs.
