Examples of filtered lists with dropdowns

Does anyone have good examples of lists w/ filter dropdowns, where the
dropdowns show the number of items available for each select option? ...With
a good solution for how to handle these numbers once the user starts making
selections in other dropdowns.

I'm especially interested in lists that do not redraw instantly, because
that option isn't available to us right now because of technical
limitations. Instead, the user would need to click on an update button to
redraw the list.

(We're using dropdowns because we have very limited real estate available on
the page.)

Livestreaming my UX research

Hi there!

I want to start UX research sessions on a mac, using Silverback. Is there any way of livestreaming these sessions to my collegues? Do I need seperate software to do this and if so, what software?

Has anybody got any experience with ScreenFlow?

Then, I want to do the same kind of research (screen capturing, video, audio & streaming) on a windows based laptop. Is there any relatively cheap windows equivalent? I've heard of Morae, but licenses for the Observer tool are far too expensive.

Could use some eyes on this chart

I've been working on this chart for awhile that has to do with my
comic. It supposed to explain some large events that happened in the
story via time travel. I could really use some more sets of eyes on
this thing, because it's driving me crazy!

It's also an exercise in information design for me, so it's not
just for fun. It's my first real attempt at info design in fact.

Anyway, I'd like to see if people can make heads or tails of it
without any explanation from me. I would love any comments, pro or

At a crossroads

I'm at a point in my life where I know I want to do ux design after doing web design for so long an then reading about usability testing etc 6 years ago. But my issue is I'm tired of working for orgs who say they care about their customer but don't do testing to even know what their customers want from them. So, do you guys know of places in Pittsburgh that focus on hcd and value it for themselves and their clients? I'm kind of fed up with working for people who don't get it.

Dell (and Others) Trying to Catch Up with Apple's Style

Interesting read: - http://www.macrumors.com/2008/01/04/dell-and-

"At Dell, in 2001, some were even lobbying for the elimination of the
Design Director job as it was seen as "unnecessary". At the time,
Dell only employed 6 designers, but this number has been increasing
in recent years and is up to 90 as of today."

"Design is expected to take center stage at the Consumer Electronics
Show (CES) which kicks off this Sunday in Las Vegas, NV.
