Having a good website program manager is one of the secret formulas of getting a good working website. Please note that here I am talking about really big websites. so… we were discussing the program manager for a good working website…And you probably don’t have one on your website team, because most web teams don’t.

I am citing one very blatant example of lack of co-ordination between design and development teams of a website project which resulted into site getting the google’s famous grey bar in google tool bar. You might be thinking of how lack of co-ordination between project teams can cause a website to get grey bar… so here is the case…

The design team worked on specifications provided by marketing team and designed a corporate website, simultaneously, the development team also worked on functional specifications and developed the website… they synced the versions and launched the website. The issue was noticed after google’s page rank refresh when a few pages of the website got grey bar… ( Though it could have been detected much earlier, if they would have looked upon the webmaster account of google where it shows the indexation stats, referrers, redirect issues etc)

so when I got a chance to look upon the site, I came to know that in the entire website all the links are showing 301 redirects… when I went indepth then came to know that while linking the website the designers linked relative pages rather than linking final destination urls of the intended pages. The developers after doing canonicalization through .htaccess didn’t botherd to co-ordinate with designers on link issue.

Ideally the scenario should be like this:

release

Google might be thinking of what a fool these people are… on one side they are applying .htaccess redirecting the page to directory and on the otherhand while linking the pages they are giving the page link instead of final destination link. Nevertheless, teams got to know about this and they corrected all the anomalies. In the next page rank refresh, all the pages get page rank and their grey status is resolved.

1 . Nokia 888 Communicator
Nokia definitely has the most interesting concept phones. Nokia 888 Communicator is a striking futuristic concept phone. The phone, which uses liquid batteries, speech recognition, flexible touchscreen and touch-sensitive body cover,is designed by Tamer Nakisci and won the Nokia Design Award

2 . Nokia Aeon
Nokia Aeon was presented by Nokia on their website in the Research & Development section. What is so great about this phone is that it looks like it will actually go into production next February. Of course, its just a rumor, but still, makes us hope to actually see it someday in the GSM shop. All we know about it for now is that its a touchscreen phone and it looks fantastic.

3 . Sky “Sleak n Slim”
“Sleek & Slim” from SKY is another concept based on touchscreen technology. The phone has a discretely glowing touchpad, hideaway keys and generally utterly-fashionable minimalist design.

4 . Benq-Siemes “Snaked”
Benq designers thought of women too and presented Snaked. This is a “reptile” looking phone, creepy somehow, but still is very cool. The Snaked is a fashion phone for sport loving women, because it also has body monitoring sensors to help the ladies keep those fine shapes.

5 . What You See is What You Get Concept
One thing is for sure about this concept phone they could’ve named it shorter. Designed by Pei-Hua Hang, the phone’s name comes from the fact that this concept no longer uses an LCD as viewfinder for the digital camera, instead it uses a transparent frame. And of course, interaction is made through a touchscreen

6 . Benq-Siemens “The Blackbox”
Black Box designed by Benq-Siemens uses a touch screen as its keypad and, depending on the functions you are using, the touch screen changes the control layout immediately.

7 . NEC Tag
Somehow similar to the Snaked concept, the NEC Tag is a flexible phone concept that can be , for example, hung from a belt or wrapped around the user’s arm. Interesting is that the phone has shape-memorizing material and sensors that allows the phone to change its shape according to the mode.

8 . TripleWatch
Though the idea of a cellphone watch is not so new, the TripleWatch designed by Manon Maneenawa has an interesting triple flip technique that allows the user to transform the watch into a normal cellphone. When used as a wrist watch, the phone has a speaker button that allows the user to answer the phone and hang up while driving.
