Mobile Button Shapes for Main Navigation? Circles vs. Round Cornered Squares?

Hi Everyone,

I'm designing a mobile application and M site. We currently are using round circle iconography to denote specific user interactions and sections of the site. I'd like to reuse these icons visually, but then have them as rounded corner rectangle icons. My gut reaction and decision for this is that it fits more with the icon paradigm (for the most part) with iphone and Android apps and devices.

This being said, I need some research to back up my claim. A colleague is wondering how I came to my initial decision and i need research to point to.

Should we have testimonials, from UX clients and candidates, on our website homepage?

Hello All,

At Bestica, nation's leading User Experience staffing company, we thus are in the process of revamping our website to convey our value proposition better to the UX community at large.

Thus, we were wondering if having testimonials from our clients and candidates on our websiite homepage be helpful to instill trust to the UX community in our services, or if it wouldn't really have any major affect to the viewers coming to our website.

Your kind suggestions on this matter will be highly appreciated.

Thanks.

Best Regards,

Time (In Seconds) of page load, pdf load, etc.?

Hi Everyone,

Is there a tried and true time (in seconds) of proper page load, link opening (say, opening and loading a pdf.) etc. that is the industry average? I realize that theres instances that are the exception. I'm trying to find a specific example that i can use as a UX benchmark to give to testers as a best practice.

Thank you all!
~Josh

P.S. If you could cite references that would be awesome. Cool
