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).

Product Standard Guidelines

Hi there.
Does anyone know of a good resource which outlines basic product
standards for a website. (it's a very data heavy site)

I imagine it's easier to find more quantifiable items such as load
times and working across browsers, but I'd love to find something
that sets a minimum bar for clarity in the UI design.

We're looking for something which will help the engineering and QA
teams evaluate if the site is adequate from a IxD perspective.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Moving into UI design / UX from another web specialism


This follows on from a discussion I was involved with regarding
education for UX professionals. I'd be interested to know how easy
it's considered to move from one area of web work into a more
UI/UX-focused role (but still within the web industry).

I've read a couple of comments on older discussions that suggest
that it isn't that easy but I'd be interested to get wider

Favicon and Apple Bookmark Icon

My company is an interactive agency. For a few years now as a standard
procedure we've created favicons (favicon.ico) for websites we build.
Recently, we have started creating an Apple Bookmark Icon
(customIcon.png) as well.

As an owner of an iPhone I dig the bookmark icon. But in day to day
browsing on a computer I actually use the favicon. In fact all my
browser bookmarks are simply the favicon. It allows me to have more
bookmarks without displaying any text.

The future of displaying non-system fonts on web

Hello all,

I am wondering if any of you know of existing or upcoming
technologies, which would enable display of rich typography
(non-system fonts) on websites - without the user having the
particular font installed on his computer and still preserving the
text copy+paste function?

Usability of accordions

No, I don't mean harmoshkas, but boxes with sliding parts, e.g.:

We are going to use such box on the main page (in the bottom of column - not
very important content there, but still) and just wondering about
interactions. Current proposition is:

1. Accordion auto-switches to the next part after every 5 seconds when mouse
pointer is outside the box.

2. OnMouseOver any part-title bar opens this part (with latency 200ms).
