Where to find user feedback/reviews?

Hi all,

I'm wanted to do some poking around to find reviews/user feedback on
Verizon's new capability to link up multiple accounts under one
username/id (now you have a username for landline, wireless, .net
mail etc.). Any ideas of the best places to look online for this type
of research??

Fireworks Symbols for UI elements

I believe there are several sets of such symbols in Common Library, at
least in CS4. Just bring it up via Window command and you ll find them

As for sketchy look - I couldn't find existing ones so I just created
my own for recent project.

Come design itsme with us - New project website 2.0

Hi ,
I introduced itsme project to Ixda community in Feburary and received
some interesting comments related to the project.

For the new members, itsme is a new kind of personal computer based
on stories and venues. We are in the middle of the development phase
and you can see some on-going design activity on the new website.

In the past, I also received feedback related to the project website
- that people would like a more interactive way to discuss, evaluate,
ask questions, and keep a track of itsme development process.
