designing mobile interfaces for semi literate and illiterate people

Hi friends,

there are so many better mobile user interfaces for literate people.
but what could be the possibility of designing mobile user interfaces for
semi literate and illiterate people.
is using regional language a solution?
is using more images, icons and combination of real+virtual world a
solution?
what could be the possible scenario for the people who are novice mobile
user and illiterate?
are there any good existing interfaces specially made for illiterate people?

this is one of the emerging topic in some countries.

Why do designers prefer Mac instead of Windows

Why do designers prefer a Mac instead of the Windows platform?

Probably it is an old topic but I still need to know. I've read substantial amount of blogs, comparisions and write ups on this topic and most of them says there are no big differences between working on a Mac and working on a Windows based PC. However, as I look for universities and colleges across the US which offers Design degrees, especially Interaction Design and Media Arts, almost all of them ask the student to get their own Mac systems.

So please share your views on this.

Identifying Stakeholder Requirements

Here’s my take on a key first step in the development of any
functional spec – the identification of stakeholder requirements.

Let's start by defining the term 'stakeholder'. A stakeholder can
be anyone who has an interest in the successful completion of a
project. This may include the individual(s) authorizing the project
as well as the folks who will actually be using the application. Once
you have identified the stakeholders, at a minimum, you'll need to
get answers to the following questions:

Responsive Product Comparison Chart

We are currently working on creating responsive designs for a web site which provides/sells service-based products. The client wants the designs based off their desktop experience. One of the pages compares the service features in a side-by-side column format. Looks great in the desktop view but it not going to work in the smart phone view.

JJG's IA Summit 2009 Keynote

The longer that thread gets, the crankier I get, so I'm starting a new one
specifically to talk about Jesse James Garrett's talk at the IA Summit last
weekend. It's what he wanted us to do, anyway.

How can I get the best out of a UX discovery workshop

I'm starting on a project in the New Year where the client has
arranged a 3 hour UX discovery meeting with 20 stakeholders right at
the beginning of the project before I've had any real time to do my
own research.

The client's objectives for the meeting are to define the personas
and user journeys and the first draft of the structure for the site.

After the meeting I will have an opportunity to conduct one-on-one
interviews.

The project itself is to develop a fairly laborious offline
application process into a streamlined online process.

New IxD Techniques to Try in 2007

Hi!

I'm putting together a list of new IxD methods and techniques I've
found that I want to try next year:

http://www.odannyboy.com/blog/new_archives/2006/12/new_interaction.html

Oddly enough, however, looking back over the blogs I follow, I didn't
find too many new methods this year.
