Come design itsme with us - New project website 2.0

Hi ,
I introduced itsme project to Ixda community in Feburary and received
some interesting comments related to the project.

For the new members, itsme is a new kind of personal computer based
on stories and venues. We are in the middle of the development phase
and you can see some on-going design activity on the new website.

In the past, I also received feedback related to the project website
- that people would like a more interactive way to discuss, evaluate,
ask questions, and keep a track of itsme development process.

Software Websites: Box Shots?

Imagine you design Websites for software products. Your company's
products are compelling and well designed. What do you put on your
Website homepage? How do you fulfill your mission of distinguishing
your product suite when some of your products are similar?

To add more context, imagine you know that many of your customers
will download the software on the spot when they visit your site. A
few will order physical copies.

The defacto standard seems to be box shots -- thumbnail images of the
box the software comes in. Is that how you would approach the design?
Why? Why not?

Hit button for Search

I am working on a website where the feature "Search" is part of an important
way to navigate through the website. What I want to know is what is the best
button option to use for the "Search". Which of these - "GO" or "magnifying
glass icon" or "arrow" or "FIND" - is the right choice and why? Or do you
have more suggestions on this?

Thank you
Sachin Ghodke
