Interaction flow as subterfuge.

I recently ran into an issue on Drugstore.com, wherein there is a discount
offer that may be obtained, but only by a series of not-so-obvious steps—all
done on the site, but not clearly documented. In fact I accidentally
activated the promotion only because I tend to be tenacious with these
things and clicked through a multitude of links. In fact, I hadn't realized
that the promotion had been added to my cart as a result of my actions until
I was already on the phone with customer support. He explained the overly
complex process I unwittingly had gone through.

Navigating interactive 3D environments / exhibition spaces

Hi folks,

I'd appreciate a bit of feedback on the underlying UI for this online
exhibition technology.

In this example, the art has been created by various celebrities ( Bono,
Rio Ferdinan etc ), so at least it's interesting to have a look at in
general, while you are testing out the UI.

Here's the link...

For now, I won't tell you how to use it, to see if it's reasonably

Need user data on iPhone adoption by age

An assertion was made to me that teens (specifically both genders age
12-18) are not adopting iPhones because they're used to being able to
text without looking at the phone - essentially typing by feel and
relying on the predictive typing software in the phone to get it
