Best UI you ever used

Hi everyone,

today I happened to find a thread on UXExchange titled "The best UI you have ever used...?"

While the thread isn't as insightful as I hoped, I thought to throw that question at you guys. Guess we agree that this is mostly about sentiment and not quite measurable :-)

Since we want to maybe learn something, it would be nice to submit some rationale, too. And to further narrow it down, please stick to web-based UIs.

Malicious User Interfaces

Some time back I picked up a PDF on malicious interfaces. I've attached the PDF to this post for reference. Basically, it's the use of UI design to effectively coerce the user into considering material (ads, etc) that they don't want to deal with, or to create an outcome that may run counter to what the user actually wants to do.

How is your team structured?

I am dreaming of the perfect division of ia, ux, and visual design in a team. Should we stick to being generalists, and wear all of those hats at once, or should we allocate resources to each role? I am curious to know  how other companies have approached this.

Suggestions, Examples or Patterns for a Touchscreen Radio Button / Binary Control?

NOTE: Yes, I'm aware of the iPhone/iPad controls, but as I said, we can't use those, we don't have multitouch, which I think you need for the on/off control to work properly.

A hybrid prototype — the holy grail of wireframing

After reading through Zaki Warfel's Prototyping, I hoped it would shed light on the most effective techniques. It was a very good read and included some invaluable insights on progressively iterating from paper models to high fidelity designs. It's led me to make some assertions about prototyping tools...

I have an interview tomorrow. What to expect?

Hi folks,

I have an early morning interview for an IxD position at a high-growth 2 year-old startup. The company produces a physical device, as well as the software that will function across multiple devices and platform (mobile and desktop). As fas as I know, i'll be reporting directly to the VP of User Experience and working closely with the other designers / developers. The culture is what you'd expect at a startup, small intimate groups.
