re: McAfee UI Design group wins big w/ 90% drop in support calls

I read this article couple of months ago.....first I was glad to seesuch article.

Then I started talking this with my colleagues (more business/marketing folks...).......our conclusion was that 90% seems little high - we felt it was exaggerated. There could be variety of reasons why McAfee didn't receive much support calls - one reason might be people simply didn't really use it.....and list does on.

iPhone UI as HTML

If anyone out there has tried jQTouch - http://jqtouch.com/ - you might have reacted as I did - initial excitement, followed by increasing frustration. It makes for a great demo - a web app with rich iPhone look-and-feel on any device. It's implementation, however, is clearly still in beta.

In particular:

- The CSS is hard to understand, undocumented, internally inconsistent, and a bit buggy
- It only uses CSS3 properties for webkit, and doesn't define the other variants (mozilla, etc.)

For those of us designing Tablet based stuff, this might be really interesting:

Bumptop is a new interaction model for working with objects that we
keep on our desktop.

I find the "pliability" demonstrated in the demo to be quite high, and
the engagement factor of manipulating objects in such a "real" fashion
to also be high.

Check it out! And be sure to watch the whole thing. I didn't start
really liking it until I got towards the middle to end.

Social Network Open Source Platform - Recommendations?

I am looking for a Social Networking Platform (LAMP preferably) - Open
Source would be ideal, which will allow the user to see a specific
template once they login, dependant upon the domain they align
themselves to during sign-up.

The user chooses an email username, which is then attached to one of
200 domain names. This domain is branded and the user sees this once
they login through the main portal.

Any pointers?


ps: as for assigning email addresses - I am open to taking advice
here too!! :)

Patiens Virtus Est (Conan Update)

In other words, forewarned is forearmed.

When the new ixda.org launches Sometime Sunday, a body of the
Interaction '10 videos will be present in the Resources section.
Needless to say, the complexity of getting all 60 or so videos
titled, tagged, compressed, and uploaded takes time & bandwidth.

So it is likely that the IxDA '10 videos will be in the process of
being uploaded early next week, rather than at launch time.
