shopping.rediff.com - too much simplicity?

Rediff, one of the leading portals in India recently underwent an entire
redesign focusing on simplicity. But I guess it did the worse thing to their
online shopping site.

Can anyone locate "Womens ear rings" in their categories page?

The old site was way better compared to the new site. The old site had the
traditional approach and it was reasonably easy to navigate and shop around.

Aptitude tests for interaction designers and practitioners of related fields

Can aptitudes tests for measuring a persons potential to be an
interaction designer, experience designer, design researcher, etc..
be used to promote ixd awareness and the amount of practitioners?

While aptitude tests (paper or interactive) can be gamed, they could
encourage students and professionals, who scored favorably in the
test, to look at interaction design and related fields.

I'm currently unaware of aptitude tests available to career
counsellors or the general public that evaluates a person's
'innate' ability for interaction design/experience design/design
research etc...

Design in Japan?

Hello, I'm a fledgling IxD student, and I am very interested in what's going on in Japan as far as Interaction Design and HCI goes. So far I have heard of only a few companies like Axis Design Japan, and the ones listed on UXmap.com. Does anyone know what the industry looks like there? Have some of you worked in Japan?

Is there an interactive newspaper

Looking at the different designs for newspapers and the way different
cultures interact with the different formats, I arrived at a question
which i wanted to pose for discussion.

What is an interactive newspaper, is there an example of an
interactive newspaper?

How can we as designers rethink of new ways to allow the users to
gather their own news into a platform?

Taking into consideration the cultural and social aspect of the
newspaper how can we devise a universal newspaper which can afford
different language while still retaining the pictorial and visual

At the event Janne Korhonen from Seos will present a point of view on
