Correlation between product usability and stock price?

Is there any evidence that companies whose products are more usable see their stock price grow more than the stock market's average growth? Which companies?

Want feedback: Interface Elements

I have used the following categories to identify all of the elements in a
given
user interface ³snapshot². This is a static (not dynamic or interactive)
tool that
has served well, and I would love feedback.

Specifically, can you think of any possible
user interface elements that would not fit into one of these categories?

Categories:
1. Navigation (top-level, sub-level, links, search, etc.)
2. Descriptive Content/Labels (user notifications, headers, titles,
banner/logo, copyright, etc.)
3. Actions (email, print, export, send, product-specific functions, etc.)
4.

Should web apps maintain state when moving between tabs

I feel like the answer to this should be pretty cut-and-dry, but I can't
help but second guess myself.

I'm working on a web app with a tabbed interface (what else is new).
Under each tab is a workflow that carries the user through a few screens
in order to reach a result.

Consider the following, I have two tabs Tab A and Tab B. Under Tab A is
Process A and under Tab B is Process B.

COMPANY: Zumobi

URL: www.zumobi.com

JOB LOCATION: Seattle, Wa

JOB TITLE: Senior Interaction Designer

JOB DURATION: Permanent, full time

JOB DESCRIPTION:

For as long as you can remember, you've had an innate talent for how
things look & feel, yet you also have an excellent sense for the way
things should work. You find yourself obsessing over the clever
interaction details of a new software application or the subtle use of
color on a beautiful video game. You are a unique design/engineer
hybrid. Desktop software and web sites were cool once, but you're ready
for the new wave...

Good Rant on lack of Good GUI Design Software

Just thought I'd share:

http://www.jasonsantamaria.com/archive/2008/01/23/mucking_up_the_fireworks.php

Jason Santa Maria posted an excellent rant on his blog about the lack
of a solid design application for creating GUIs. Most of us jump
through hoops to accomplish our designs in traditional art programs
such as Photoshop or Illustrator.

new features

If your are introducing a new feature on a consumer web site, does it always need to be overtly called out? Particularly if it a catch up feature (your competition already has something similar). I am wondering if there is benefit in letting the user discover a cool feature (any behaviorists out there?) - as opposed to directing their attention to it? Has anyone had this conversation or have insights to the issue?

Thanks -Mark
