iPhone UI as HTML

If anyone out there has tried jQTouch - http://jqtouch.com/ - you might have reacted as I did - initial excitement, followed by increasing frustration. It makes for a great demo - a web app with rich iPhone look-and-feel on any device. It's implementation, however, is clearly still in beta.

In particular:

- The CSS is hard to understand, undocumented, internally inconsistent, and a bit buggy
- It only uses CSS3 properties for webkit, and doesn't define the other variants (mozilla, etc.)

View page Vs. Edit Page

Well, actually it is like this... There is an edit icon on clicking of which
a page opens where comments can be entered/edited. When the user has to just
see it and not really edit it, is it advisable to give another icon on
clicking of which a page opens only for "viewing" and not for editing ??

Not only in this context but for many admin sections as well, such as a
profile page, where data can be entered/edited and also if the user wishes
to only see them and not really edit them, is it advisable to give two
different links - one for view and another for edit???

Incredibly Ticked Off

Tonight I responded to a discussion board post seeking advice on getting a job in UX. In context, it was nice and normal and addressed the concerns in the original post. However, for some reason, my post went to an email list completely without context. Shortly after, I received an email from a CEO believing I was directing my response to her, which would have been completely inappropriate, and out of context - downright rude.

how to implement a dialogue?


For one of our clients, we're considering designing a site around the
concept of a dialogue, and I could use some help in deciding on approaches
and maybe technologies.

In this concept, the website would act as one partner in a conversation, the
visitor as the other. We might even decide to have multiple
client-representatives participate in a conversation. The conversations
would be focussed on learning about, selecting and buying financial products.

(And before I go any further: no, we are not creating the new Boo.com!

IA for the IxDA Media Library

HA. Didn't think you'd see a subject line like that one, didja? Figured that
would get your attention.

Seriously, though, I'm looking at the list of remaining Interaction '09
videos coming down the pike, and I'm excited to share them with the
community. But combine this with the list of Interaction '08 video, and the
body of videos is going to get unwieldy. Fast.

So here's an attempt at categorizing the video from both conferences. Don't
worry too much about how the navigation will be implemented; that's another
post entirely :-).

Is Design an Objective Pursuit?


So you and I are hearing different stories about Apple. My sources
however are a bit out of date so I'll defer to yours. Either way, I
think we can agree that the determining factor in Apple's success is
the creative vision and leadership of Mr. Jobs.

As for visual design, while I agree that it is generally equated with
style, that doesn't mean it has to be. It is up to us as a community to
educate our clients and consumers about the real value and meaning of

Psych 101: The Psychological Basis for UI Design Rules
Jeff Johnson, UI Wizards

UI design rules are not simple recipes to be applied mindlessly. Applying
them effectively requires determining their applicability—and
precedence—in specific situations. It also requires balancing the
trade-offs that inevitably arise in situations when design rules appear to
contradict each other.
