The common result is that when the user does
box-select a set of zones, a

where and how to call an about us link

We're planning a corporate website. We did a card sort test

Agreed that the state of microwave control UIs is a joke. But missing from this discussion is the ecosystem aspect: companies creating products (microwavable food items) with instructions that don't map to the available capabilities.

For example, a frequently seen food preparation instruction is to heat the product at e.g. 50% power for 8 minutes.

Hi folks,

It's that time again. :) We're expanding our Design team here at
Infragistics with some interesting and challenging spots that call for some
specialization in interaction design that is not standard.

Who is Infragistics <http://www.infragistics.com>? Among other things, we
make Quince <http://quince.infragistics.com/>, a RIA design patterns tool,
which we just updated to enable folks to have their own private libraries
and annotated examples.
