A quick survey on reactions to visual design.

Friends (with many apologies for cross-posting),

I have a theory I'd like you to help me prove or disprove.

iPhone localization & accessibility

Hello IXDA folks,

If you've worked on any iPhone projects that had specific
localization or accessibility requirements, I'd love to chat with
you. I'm currently writing a book about iPhone design and want to
include "real world" examples.

In terms of localization, I'm particularly interested in projects
that go beyond translating button labels. Similarly, the
accessibility related projects should have relatively stringent
requirements, e.g., more involved than increasing text size.

Please contact me directly if you'd like to share your experiences.

Thought experiment: Law against usability that's TOO good?

Dear all,

Since some time I have been playing around with something and I would like
to share it with you to pick your brains. I see it as a thought experiment
and therefore it might seem a little overboard.

The semantics of checkboxes and null values

Yet another of my odd questions, feel free to skip if you don't care...

I am attempting to design a query form to let people find things in a
mixed set of records. For simplicity's sake let's say there are
R1-type records and R2-type records. In the R1-type records there's a
data value that's either Yes or No. In the R2-type records this data
value is undefined or unset.
