Loan Calculator

Scenario: A loan calculator (for amounts under $50,000 / £25,000)

Option A:
Two sliders (with associated input fields) one for total amount,
second for duration.
Moving the sliders affects a results panel which shows amount
repayable per month & total cost of loan.

Option B:
Three sliders, as option A but this time also including a 'monthly
amount' slider. Moving 'amount' and 'duration' moves the 'monthly
amount' automatically.

Is Eye Tracking too expensive or complicated?

Hey All,

I just put together about Eye Tracking
(http://www.insideria.com/2008/04/is-eye-tracking-out-of-reach.html)
but I thought I'd put the question out to the list:

"Why isn't eye tracking used more in design and testing of rich
internet applications?"

I really have no experience with it, but am going to be working with
it this summer so looking for thoughts from some of you more
experienced with usability testing and eye tracking.

Telecom Self Service (Web & Mobile)

Hi Everyone.

I am doing an impossible research. Currently I am trying to find out how all the different telecom self-service portals work. As it's almost impossible for me to be a customer for all mobile carrier (around the world), I am asking the community to help.

This thread can act as a resrouce gathering for pattern study in telecom self-service. (if we manage to gather enough screenshots) I think this would be benefitial to everyone as this is not just a portal, not just a website, but more of a service design on the web.

Inactive UI elements: disable or disappear?

I'm struggling with an UI issue, so I'm hoping to receive some advice from
you. Imagine a textprocessor (i.e. Word) application in which you can edit
both text and image objects. The interface is clean and simple, only the
most needed functions are available in this app. An advantage of the
limited amount of functions is that they all fit in one toolbar without
cluttering or being miniscule.

Interaction Design methods library

About two years ago I came across a pretty exhaustive list of IxD methods, with advice on when to use them and examples of implementations. It covered prototyping, interviewing, ethnography research, information architecture, sketching, user testing, research analysis and synthesis, etc. - the whole shebang. It was nothing short of amazing, and yet I didn't bookmark it / lost the bookmark. Every few months I try to find it again. Really hoping I didn't dream the whole thing up. I faintly recall it being curated by a school, but that could be a red herring.

Mobile Sites and Breadcrumb Navigation

Hi all -
 
Wondering if anyone has any insight or can point me to information on use of breadcrumb nav with mobile sites. Some sites use it, others appear to rely on a back link (or browser back) and a home link as a hub.

Desktop GUI prototyping tools...

Hi

Any recommendations on GUI prototyping tools specially for desktop
application prototyping. I could find a good list at
http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?GuiPrototypingTools and am looking at any feedback
on the ones listed or maybe a new tool not listed there but somebody has
used and strongly recommends.

The need is to capture the paper prototypes into higher fidelity prototypes
that can be tested and reviewed before getting commited for actually coding.

Thanks
Pankaj

Inserting jQuery into Axure

Do you mean integrate it into the generated HTML prototype, or into
the actual .rp file? I don't think you can do the second - and the
first is obviously a problem because your code would get overwritten
when you re-generated the prototype. I'd recommend coding an
HTML/jQuery prototype outside of Axure if the interactivity is that
important.
