Looking for some inspiration about how to orient people to a UI in a
novel way. Of course, no training should be required, but there's some
legal reasons why we need to do it for a project. Anyone seen any cool
vids/demos/tutorial modes out there lately I could check out?

The video tour at www.umoo.com is quite good.

You could spend tens of millions of dollars on placing advertising
that does little more than demo the product, the way Apple did with
iPhone.

(I'm only half-joking. It was a brilliant move on their part.)
