Magazine recommendations

What magazines do IxDA'ers subscribe to?

I subscribe to the standard ACM/SIGCHI/AIGA pubs,
but are there any other good pubs out there?

I picked up a copy of "Web Designer" that had
some pretty interesting/innovative Web sites...
And I've heard something about "How"...

Advice for drive testing

Hello everyone,
I'm emailing this list asking for advice.  I have a client who makes cell phone-based navigation systems, and they want to do some drive testing -- that is, testing where I'd be in the car with the participant observing them as they navigate.  Has anyone on this list done this before?  If so, please let me pick your brain for some advice.

First off, is that really that low? I don't know my exchange rates off-hand
but the pound at it's lowest is 1.5 dollars to the pound which would put
that at some $70k, no? Considering that teaching usually has "supplemental"
income at this level, I'm not so sure that I think that is so bad.

Also, I bet in the UK the bennies are a heck of a lot better than they are
in the states. Just the # of bank holidays alone.

Select items in a paginated list

I have a paginated list of items. The user selects an item by clicking on a
checkbox. The checkbox selection, by default only applies to the items on
that page. So if you select 5 items on the first page and then navigate to
the second to select a few more, the items on the first page do not get
considered for any actions while still on the second page.
I'm working on an 'expert' tool, where the desire is to be able to select
items on multiple pages (assume there is no way to filter all of results on
the same page).

How do i get started?

Hello members,

Basically i am a visual designer working in a small team. We do detailed
prototype design on Inkjet printers using flash. Its basically to give a
complete understanding of the work flow like copy,print,scan etc for user
research and testing. In these recent days, my personal interest lies in
interaction designing and supporting that my boss wants me to take up some
task flows as exercize to start off. But i do not acquire any sort of
training or experience in Interaction design.

Voice interfaces aren\'t Visual interfaces WAS Any data on users making use of Help?


My experiences with voice-based interfaces has always been pretty
caustic. Often you have a voice command-line, where in the user can
speak commands that the computer understands (let's ignore
imperfections in recognition for now) and the computer performs this

"Play Metallica" "Skip" "Play Genre Jazz" and so on.

Every kind of voice controlled system I've dealt with has boiled
down to some kind of flat list of context-sensitive keywords.

Breadcrumb Trail Separator Terminolgoy

In the interest of a controlled vocabulary, what terms have you used, or do you prefer to use for the > that is placed between breadcrumb trail elements?

^ is a caret, but that isn't quite accurate.  "Greater-than sign" just sounds out of place.

Thanks in advance for your replies.
