Universal trip packing list generator

I hate packing for trips. I will put it off until the last possible moment, and even then some. Part of the reason I hate it is that I'm never quite sure exactly what I need to pack. If you're in the same boat, you might find the Universal Packing List site as interesting as I do. Basically, the site is a very compact user interface that asks you a set of questions about your upcoming trip,...

Microsoft: Windows Mobile 6.5 isn't really complete

A group of Microsoft folks got together at the TechEd conference yesterday to discuss the upcoming launch of Windows Mobile 6.5. They talked about widgets, the new Windows Marketplace app store, and about how Silverlight won't be offered. But the most surprising admission was the fact that Microsoft doesn't really consider the Windows Mobile 6.5 user interface to be "complete." Responding to a...

Create user interface mockups quickly with Balsamiq Mockups

Do you ever have to design or have input into software user interfaces? If not, you might want to skip this post, but if so, Balsamiq Mockups might be of interest to you.

Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth: We can surpass Apple in two years

Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth has big dreams for Linux.

But user friendly is just the beginning. Shuttleworth wants Linux to be prettier too. In fact, he's calling on open source developers to make desktop Linux...

While the Smart Touch UI is designed to run on Gigabyte's GSmart line of phones, an unofficial version of the software has been leaked and you can download it and install it on pretty much any Windows Mobile 5.0/6 device.

ZenZui mobile UI becomes Zumobi, announces public beta

We first heard about ZenZui back in March. The Microsoft-backed company is developing an innovative new interface for mobile phones that lets you zoom in and out of almost every screen. That way you can see an overview of your information or zoom in to see more details. It's sort of like Safari for the iPhone, but for the entire user interface. While the name sounded a bit funny, ZenZui made some...

Gmail getting a facelift?

When Google launched an e-mail client back in 2004, the company best known for its search engine completely changed the way we think about e-mail. While Yahoo! and MSN were offering users mailboxes measured in megabytes, Gmail users had an unprecedented 1GB of storage. Messages were sorted by filters and labels and not folders. The threaded message view made it easier to keep up with...
