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"

Fair Hourly Rate for Usability Test

Hello all. I am new to this list, but I wanted to get some people's opinion.
I received an SOW from a usability firm in San Francisco for user testing on
a mobile device. They want to charge $160 per hour for their consulting time
and some material costs. This seems like a very high rate, but I have never
hired such a company before, so I don't know what is fair. Does this seem
like a standard rate or is it too high? Any advice would be very helpful.

handwriting capture with digitizer vs. Tablet PC

I'm working on a proposal that involves capturing handwriting -- not
recognizing it, just capturing it -- in a clinical trial setting, where
the doctor is "facing" a patient via video conference. (There would be
forms with check boxes as well.) The team is debating how to do this. On
the one hand, we don't need a tablet PC, because it's not a portable
environment, so a plain digitizing tablet connected to a bigger PC seems
better.

USID2010 : CALL FOR PAPERS

*USID*2010
*India’s 4th International conference on UX & Design
**
Designing Customer Experience for Emerging Markets & Beyond...**

***

*Pre-Conference Event**
*Call for Papers for USID 2010**

Life, culture, and context of use for end users in the emerging markets are
different to users in markets such as Europe and America. Therefore it is
not necessary that the product which is successful in other parts of the
world will also be successful in the markets of emerging economies.

Design Usability Heuristics (DUH) Accreditation: A Modest Proposal

Are you a crappy but ambitious designer? Career going nowhere? Tired of spending time at conferences learning things but have nothing to show for it except knowledge? Don't want the hassle of getting an actual degree at an accredited university in design or HCI, but don't want to pay some company money for their fake accreditation?

Designing experiences which are delightful and magical

I've put some thinking into what principles might guide the design of delightful magical experiences. I've used lots of examples of products which are successful and some which are not. 

We'd love to hear how other practitioners design for this.
