Goldman Sachs Wireless NYSE Handheld Device

This project outlines a very interesting approach to designing an information appliance - the method adds novel digital functionality to existing physical activities. The idea was to 'bring the technology to the project gently'. I am currently (finally) reading information appliances and beyond so this is sort of timely. A good review can be found at uidesign.

Also on the DIDI site is:
a very unusual visualisation of large bodies of text which provides clues as to the importance of words by highlighting their individual occurrences, it also provides a pattern of the flow of the story through the individual key words (the result is visually attractive but the functionally or purpose is totally opaque)
