visual cues for thumbnails

Dear ID/As,

in his wonderful book "Tog on Software Design" Tog wrote:

"Thumbnails will replace generic-looking document icons, providing users with visual cues as to the nature of the material inside a container. Their appearance will go beyond today's thumbnails to reflect the amount of material they contain." [p. 196]

This is exactly what I like to do for OpenOffice.org/StarOffice thumbnails representing documents.

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.

We design the behaviors of systems as they interact with humans.

In the UCD world (those disciplines created around UCD, not ones that impact
it like Visual Design who's origins go to unrelated areas).
