The World's First Open Source Circular and Spiral Dock

Circle Dock is a free open source dock-style applications launchers
for Windows that appear where your mouse is instead of you having to
move your mouse to the dock like with other programs. This is
accomplished by making the dock a circular or spiral shape so that it
can be placed anywhere, even near the edge of the screen. The
offscreen portions of the dock are easily reached by just scrolling
with your mouse wheel or arrow keys.

Its Windows only But i would like to see..if anyone has tried this App.

reading/scanning - tables the facts

Many kinds of information is best presented in tables.
For example information that we want to compare on
different attibutes e.g. financial information.

But also information about e.g. songs in an mp3player
is good to present in a table allowing sorting on
different attributes.

My question is - what is the ultimate design (shading,
horisontal, vertical lines, no lines)of a table from a
reading point of view.

I remember that Tufte suggested that vertical lines
between columns was inappropirate - since "lines" was
formed by the info in the columns (like below).

RE: Where Interaction Sits.

Not sure what is wrong w/ Interaction Design.
We design the behaviors of systems as they interact with humans.

In the UCD world (those disciplines created around UCD, not ones that impact
it like Visual Design who's origins go to unrelated areas).
