designing interfaces for mobile

hi all!

just wondering if anyone has book recommendations on designing
interfaces for mobile devices?

even though i've been doing ia for 9 years, it seems that i can't get
a job in mobile until i've done mobile (nice.) so i thought i'd do
some design work on my own to put in my book.

any suggestion would be most appreciated (i'll post all to the list)

New personas book

Hi all -

Just a quick note to announce the release of my book on user research
and personas, with the understated title "The User Is Always Right: A
Practical Guide to Creating and Using Personas." If you attended the IA
Summit in Vancouver, you might have heard me give a preview of some of
the book's content on adding more science to persona creation.

A quick guide to readings

Note: I posted this to my blog (which is rarely read ;-), but thought
it might make a good starting point of discussion for the group. Many
of the posters here seem to be searching for references, short cuts
to expertise and experience, and general good insight. - Mark Schraad

A quick guide to readings

I have spent a great deal of time reading in the last few years. Much
of it wasted. It occurs to me that there are some patterns observed
that may be worth sharing.

AJAX and CSS2 books

Hi, just wanted to know from members of this group which AJAX and CSS2 books helped them and would like to recommend to someone who is a 'designer' more than a 'programmer'.

Sneak preview the all-new Yahoo.com. It's not radically different. Just radically better.

book recommendation for everyone

I'd like to recommend that everybody read the new edition of Cost-Justifying Usability : An Update for the Internet Age.

I just finished reading the majority of it, and thought that it was an excellent read. While it is a "usability" book, it's a valuable resource for interaction designers also, particularly if they have to ROI activities.

In addition, there was an excellent chapter that detailed how to think about improving internal social return on investment.

The folks at the SAP Design Guild (G-d! Shouldn't every major org have
this?)

Put up a review of this book.

Anyone else read it? Recommend it?

Ps. I wonder if they are using pervasive to mean ubiquitous, or am I just
getting these terms wrong.

Reading suggestions

I'm trying to update my skills in graphical design and design of GUI. Last
time I focused on the excellent "Designing Visual Interfaces" by
Mullet&Sano. Anyone got suggestions for other good books on GUI-design and
communication oriented graphical design? What books are essential and why?
I'll appreciate all answers.
