Brand new type of interface! The tongue!

Slashdot.org has passed along news that the University of Electro-communications has created an artificial, Internet-enabled tongue. You manipulate a control with your tongue, and a paired control somewhere else mimics your tongue's movements inside someone else's mouth.

There's also discussion of Ubuntu's new user interface, which seems to have suffered from the rush to put out the latest version of the linux-based operating system. One user claims "Ubuntu is doing a great job throwing away years of UI experience." Ouch.

language translation vs. international sites

Just wanted to get some opinions / experiences on this matter:

Our client is based in the U.S. has about 10 or so International sites in the respected domains, in addition to the .com U.S. site. On the .com site there is a fairly hefty drop down menu to change your site. Now, they also want to add a google translate bar to their U.S. site. The international sites are not mirrors of the US site, but they are specific to their world brand and events. I'm not very familiar with any international/languages best practices and was just curious on some outsider input.

Advise needed on career change

Hi everyone,

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.

Thx

Smart-phones: Portrait vs Horizontal orientation

Hello Everyone,

I'm wondering if anyone has done or is aware of any research on the use of smart-phones in portrait vs landscape orientation?

Let's take a theory, that since portrait orientation is a natural "phone" orientation, anyone who changes to landscape switches to a non-phone use mode.

If someone is using an app, switching orientation would be a proof of an increased engagement and a form of commitment to use the device as a platform for the app, not a phone.
