where have the Windows Mobile guidelines gone?

We're trying to brush up on the windows mobile design guidelines, but
the documentation in MSDN isn't helping us any. It used to have good
guidelines, but now most of the design links are broken. For example,
in [1], the content is not found for any but the first UI control or

Empty search query: what result?

Hi there,

I have encountered the following problem several times at my current job as a IxD-er without finding a satisfying solution:
"What to do when a search is executed with no input, thus an empty search query?" Concretely, this means hitting the search button next to an empty text field.

I am doubting whether this should show all results, especially if you have some filters (think of genre for music for example), or no results at all. In the latter case, an extra <return all results> button or something of the kind could be used.

Criteria for Evaluating Websites

Dear List,

I'm an undergraduate computer science student. I live in Tehran, Iran.
... Please don't judge me based on my location.

Here, there are no Usability Engineers or Interaction Designers,
but thousands of programmers who tend to "design". Websites are
pre-built using CMSes (e.g. Joomla, phpNuke). The User-centered
approach is just a new term. Nobody cares about the end-user.
Universities do not teach User Interface design. No Usability Labs at all.

In such a world, I'm trying to write an article about evaluating
quality of websites.
