Great product pages

Does anyone have examples of sites with product pages that they really
like? We're looking at new ways to present product information on our
site. Our pages currently have a lot of data and we're looking for
ways to improve the experience and reduce the clutter.

Examples that we've found include the Vaio laptop pages (dashboard,
large images, etc.), Trekbikes.com (simple, large images), etc.

Any other good examples out there?

Looking for feedback on a functional banner that is always there and pinned to bottom of the browser - not context driven.

Does anyone have any experience with an "always there" functional
banner that is pinned to the bottom of the browser? An example of
this is at http://www.houselogic.com/

It seems of little use to me as it is redundant to
information/function that is already on the site, takes up real
estate and is more a distraction than anything else. Maybe with some
additional context driven function there might be something there,
but the CEO here liked it so I'm doing my due diligence. I can't
remember seeing anything like it before.

Thanks -

Taxonomy for IA?


I wonder if anyone has seen a taxonomy of topics IAs encounter in
their work? For example, internet marketers deal with email
marketing, search marketing, and social media. I'm not having much
luck finding taxonomy for IAs.

Thanks for any ideas.

UML for UX?

My organization is moving toward UML for all of its documentation,
from requirements through development and maintenance. The UX
practice here is in it's infancy and I am now a team of one. While
I'm familiar with UML, I'm skeptical that it will be appropriate
for user flows and any other UX documentation.

Has anyone worked in a UML environment? How did you integrate your
practice into RUP or similar methodologies?
