Submission + - Bad Usability Calendar 2007

Scott Falconer writes: "I think I'm going to put this up in the break room at work. Each month violates a specific design heuristic, but is presumably still usable. Be aware though: "Violating yet another usability guideline, the file is formatted to print on European-sized paper, and there doesn't seem to be a version designed for American paper sizes." http://www.iallenkelhet.no/bad-usability-calendar- 2007-is-here"

Can Apple Penetrate the Corporation? 500

coondoggie sends us a NetworkWorld story on the prospects for Apple gaining market share in the corporation. A number of factors are helping to catch the eye of those responsible for upgrading desktops and servers, the article claims: "Apple's shift to the Intel architecture; the inclusion of infrastructure and interoperability hooks, such as directory services, in the Mac OS X Server; dual-boot capabilities; clustering and storage technology; third-party virtualization software; and comparison shopping, which is being fostered by migration costs and hardware overhauls associated with Microsoft's Vista." On this last point, one network admin is quoted: "The changes in Vista are significant enough that we think we can absorb the change going to Macs just as easily as going to Vista."
