Serial comma in UIs?

Hello everyone,

I'm wondering whethere there is an established convention about using serial commas in lists of items in UI text strings. To be more specific, I'm working on Android.

This is a serial comma (the comma preceding "and"): "Portugal, Spain, and France"

Combining form and function

Or rather, playing on words in a rather impressive way.

Political views aside (sorry for bringing up such a hot-button topic),
I can only applaud the marvelous design job. If these become popular,
the same street vendors who sell fake Oakleys at every NYC
intersection will be peddling these flip-flops.

Fixed v/s variable width web pages

This topic has been explored many times from a web design POV, but rarely
from an IxD one. When would you use each of the options? Fixed width seems
to have become the de-facto choice in content based websites, and variable
width in online tools. A great compromise is the combo method where its
fixed above and/or below a certain resolution/ window size and variable
inbetween. Thoughts?

HFI Training Courses (particularly "Design for the Big")


Just wondering if anyone has been on any training courses run by HFI (Human Factors International) and whether they were any good? I'm particularly interested in the upcoming 'Design for the Big' course. However, with limited training budget and time, I need to be pretty sure of the quality before making the commitment.

Have you been on an HFI training course? If so, which one? Anyone been on the 'Design for the Big' course? Was it any good?

Any insights greatly appreciated.

Unfortunately, it's accompanied by the all-too-common pathetically low
salary for an IxD H-o-D.
