Human Performance (Limitations) - State of the Art/Literature review

Hi Guys,

I'm just coming to the end of my first year in my Phd (in Human Factors) and as many of us have probably done, I have to write a report concerning the current state of the art, which will also serve as the first chapter of my future thesis.  I've done the usual trawling on google and journal sites and found some useful stuff, but was wondering what you guys in industry have found too, either from your own personal or company research and also from your own searches on the web.

Mozilla Labs: Ubiquity

Aza Raskin presents very intriguing interaction paradigm for the
browser, similar to his previous work with Enzo for the OS; instead of
you going to services, the application pulls those services in to your
workflow via a natural language command line.
He's created a nice video demoing the app

command line interfaces when compared to the visually heavy designs at
the other end of the spectrum, e.g.

Traffic analysis tools?

I am looking for some traffic analysis systems/tools that should be
used in measuring usability. The main requirements are:

* standalone - no data can be send outside the company environment,

* wide spectrum of (easy readable) reporting: the-more-the-better.

Additionaly - some kind of support for interface-analysis (e.g.
possibility to compare metrics for two or three randomly displayed
versions of the same page) would be nice, as well as all these
candies like site overlay.

Any recommendations?
