I just came back from lunch at a fast food restaurant where they were heavily promoting how you can over 100 flavors of soft drinks now. They had 2 brand new Freestyle dispenser machines. The part I found fascinating: despite a large, interactive touch screen display and a *fairly* siimple task, the restaurant had not one, but two, assistants helping each and every person get a drink.
We're starting to build the case/need for a UX designer internally; however, I need to provide a list of anticipated software/hardware requirements. Might anyone have any insight as to what items might be basic for a new UX designer? Mac or PC?

The customer experience for a retail banking or credit card consumer may have never been as bad as it now. The government did what it could to help an industry that basically imploded, intervening particularly on behalf of consumers to protect their rights. But by the time the dust settled, people’s faith in their banks, credit card companies, and lenders had been severely –and in many cases, irreparably– damaged. This unfortunately comes at a time when people need more help than ever with managing their finances and staying out of debt.

I'm freelance graphic designer. I know web design programs such as HTML, dreamweaver, flash, actionscript, jquery, CSS. I can design and build a website, but I have hard time "breaking" into the web design/interactive design job position/title. I need your advise. Should I go to back to school to get MA in interactive/interaction design or UX design? or certificate course will do. BTW, I also do pro-bono web design work for non-profit, but the process has been really slow.
