Examples of engaging privacy policies / terms of engagement

Seen any privacy policies, credit card policies, terms of engagement, service agreements etc that don't just make your eyes glaze over and turn the page?

We're looking for examples (web based or paper based) where people manage to make this legalese heavy, text heavy interaction a positive one, or at least one that people don't just skip over.

UX/UI Design constraints for Android platform?

Hello all !

We at Desolve are planning to design a new Android home screen experience.

We believe that the future of home screens will no more be 'idle' but dynamic and fluid like the Vodafone 360, Microsoft Kin. Our vision for the interface we would like to design is in the direction of the Microsoft Kin (with our own twist to it) which will make the home screen come alive.

Designing a long list of items that people must choose from.


I'm looking for some advice, examples or even recommendations of who might
be good at solving this particular problem for us.

In the context of a longish multi-page web form we have a need for the user
to tell us at a fairly granular level what their occupation is. the total
length of the list is long, more than 1,000 choices. The accuracy of the
answer is pretty important to our business as is our desire not to stop the
users flow through the application because of either the difficulty or
perceived intrusiveness of the question.

Education for a team of none

Hi all,

Over the past few years as a web designer I’ve noticed a lack of
education specific to people like me.

I wrote an article on the subject, and I implore you to read it.


In my article, I use an example of building robust personas. I
recently saw Jared Spool present on the topic.

Looking for examples of Gui\'s for persons who never seen/used a computer. For example the GUI of the one laptop per child project

Hi All,

I've been ask to think about a GUI concept for users who have never
seen a computer before.

For the time being and inspiration I look for examples. Things like
the GUI of the "one laptop per child" project:

The things i sort of decided on, are:

- using a touch screen for direct interaction. Non direct interaction
using keyboard or mouse will steepen the learning curve.

- using color coded sections and working a lot with the concept of
spatial recognitition.

Touchscreen Examples

I'm looking for environmental touchscreen examples along the lines of the
Accenture Interactive Network installed at O'Hare last year:

Anyone familiar with other touchscreen examples that are somewhere
in-between your typical Walgreens kiosk and Jeff Han's multitouch demo (in
terms of complexity)? There was a nice IxDA thread about this a few years
ago, but I'm looking for more recent projects.
