Flash Rotators

Flash Rotators, should we have users activate them? Should we have a

their efficiency in conveying multiple messages but it looks like I am

as possible. I have looked for articles and research to prove my point
but have not found much. I hope you guys can help, Thoughts?

No Exit Point in Wizard Design

When I went through the process of transitioning from hotmail to Windows Live Mail Beta, I noticed that the wizard only had the "Continue" button. There was no way to get out except for closing the browser. Even the top logo was not linked to anywhere.

I had no problem of going through the wizard to make the transition successful.

Does anyone have any experience with leveraging Dojo (http://dojotoolkit.org/

interface standards - the CE space

Dave Collins makes an excellent point regarding consumer electronics:

2020 show and kinex

I saw it and thought they totally missed the point.
Kinex is a really great set of toys for people who
enjoy building things. The purpose of the toy is its
"complicated" assembly of the pieces and not the final
thing that it can do. Kinex is really something that
is a "hobbyist" toy and the user experience is the
building of it not the final product.
