[EVENT] Reminder: IxDA LA & HUGE present "Methodology Madness", Wednesday April 23, 7-9pm

Wow! Only 2 spots left - RSVP today!

*Methodology Madness!* A good methodology can help you organize your
thoughts and, ideally, help you design better products. However, with so
many methodology flavors out there, it can be a bit confusing. Goal-directed
design? Contextual design? Scenario-based design? It's madness! What are
the *real* differences between them anyway? More importantly, how
effectively can you use them where *you *work?

Windows -- what would you change in interaction?

Hi everybody,

not to start holywar... I'm just curios... Many of us use Windows
everyday and I'm sure you've noticed things, you would be done
differently or something you really miss there...

What would you add? What would you change?

I really miss search box in "Add or Remove Programs" control panel applet.
Sometimes you know name of application you want to uninstall but dont
remember name of manufacturer and you have to scan whole list to find
the one you are looking for.

Another thing I miss is nice launcher for applications.

MS Surface Arrives at AT&T this month

"Microsoft Surface, the software maker's coffee-table shaped touch-
screen computer, will make its debut as a marketing tool in a handful
of AT&T Inc.'s wireless stores April 17."

There will only be 22 of them in service. I'll be expecting a report
from one of you metropolitan members.
