Shop or Buy?

What is the appropriate button to use on the product detail page when
the website navigation asks the user to either Shop or Buy?

Of course, can we get a little more interesting and personal? For
example: instead of Shop or Buy can we use buttons that say - 'Go
and Pamper' (for a gifts e-commerce website) or 'Educate Yourself'
(while buying education books) or 'Push Limits' (while e-shopping
for BASE jumping equipment).

E-commerce websites for mobile

What rules should one follow while designing e-commerce websites for
the mobile? I understand that usability on mobile is extremely
primitive and very difficult. In such a case what are the usability
rules and GUI guidelines one needs to adhere to?

As far as I know that using assisted technologies (Javascript, AJAX,
jQuery, Flash, Flex, etc) would make the experience even more
cumbersome and confusing only because the Mobile has not evolved.

Interface Prototyping and Usability Testing

I'm currently in the process of developing a touch based interface
for AV system control. When deployed, the interface will be operating
on proprietry touch input hardware however I'm looking into
technologies I can utilize during the development and user testing
phase.

Users involved in the testing are geographically distributed so I'm
looking for tools I can use to quickly push out interface concepts
for feedback.

Usability of Buttons versus Links for Navigation

Hello Everyone,

I am wondering if using buttons or navigational elements that look
like buttons(for e.g BACK link) are intuitive?

Let me give you guys some context here:

I am working on designing a knowledge base interface where a user can
look for articles and click on a particular link to read that article.
In the article page on the top I had a "BACk" link that would take
the user to previous page/results page.

Based on some feedback I changed the "BACK" to look like a button.
I am not sure if buttons should only be used to submit data and not
for navigation?

Research methods when you only have 2-3 hours or 2-3 days

So, yesterday I asked what your favorite methods for rapid research
were. Nobody responded. Does that mean that no one here is using
research to inform your designs? Are you guys all just winging it?

Do you just skip the research phase if your client tells you "we don't
have time."? I realize this group is geared more towards design or
organizing information, but how do you inform your decisions? Have we
gotten so complacent that we just go with our gut or based on our past
knowledge?

Come on people.
