Date based search on Mobile web

Hi all,
I was just wondering if anyone knew good examples of date search on
mobile web.Specifically talking about html driven stuff, not iphone
apps.

The difficultly with date based searches on mobile, I am realising is
error prevention (in the absence of relying on ajax) and fatigue at
the prospect of interacting with multiple and very long pull menus.

I have a bunch of quick links to commonly used date ranges - ie, this
weekend, but I also need to provide the flexibility to allow users to
choose any singe date in the future or a date range.

Interaction design versus Instructional Design

Hi Byran :-),

I have never heard the phrase or title "Instructional Design"
before today. But from a quick glance, it looks like the difference
maybe the perspective. Instructional Design maybe looking at it from
a perspective of how well the person will learn or understand
something, and how to train a person. Where as interaction design is
about the intuitiveness of something and how easy is it to use
without any instructions.

Choosing best colors for \"highlighted\" text

Hi, I have a list of items to sell on a landing page.
>From left to right each item has a clickable thumbnail, the name

Using laptop touchpad as gesture controller

Hi,
Has anyone tried developing PC based prototype for touch gesture UI
using laptop touchpad?

The problem situation is:

finger from left to right on touchpad, the mouse cursor reaches the
right edge of the monitor.
Then when I lift the finger on touchpad and start scrolling left to
right again, I would like the mouse cursor to reposition itself to the
left of my monitor screen.

So, I was interested to know if anybody know how can we re-calibrate
the laptop touchpad to respond in Absolute terms and not relative to
the previ
