If anything, perhaps it's because they cut off a slightly smaller part of the image within the same square dimensions: Having said that, I'm pretty sure Swarm's reason for using hexagons relates to their branding, which draws from nature's very own ...

Put it to them this way: these days, the word "integer" gets taught at elementary level. Most people are going to know what it means. I do see their point for more technical terms though - if people aren't going to understand, you have a problem. A possible solution is to add a clickable question mark icon next to technical terms that produces a definition ...

Academic studies tend to say between 8-12 is optimal for qualitative research. However if you are targeting discrete groups of users (e.g. teachers and students) you may need 8-12 of each discrete type. In my experience, the cost starts exceeding the benefit after about the 8th participant. The following factors should also be taken into account: ...

You have a particular set of skills, as does marketing. You're concerned about the twenty percent that gets it, and they're concerned about the other eighty percent. The two perspectives are complementary. I wouldn't assume that your users know their data types as well as a programmer or mathematician would. Why not use "number" with a single input, ...

What about labeling it "Whole Numbers"? Also I suggest an A/B-Test on this: One with "Integer", one with "Whole Numbers". Which performs better? Btw about question mark icons: I ran a usability test for my bachelor thesis. Findings: No one considered reading the question mark info, even though the answer to successfully ending a task was completely ...

You should say to the marketing team, that if the customers are attorneys they have the obligation of knowing what an integer and a decimal are, because a cause can be lost on a court, just from not having the right words proffered. In the Law and Rights area, the attention to the little linguistic details in the text is very important.

This question was recently asked and answered on Quora. For the benefit of the non-Quora user, I reproduce the top answers and comments here: I believe the answer lies in Newton's third law of motion. The bars are made thick to prevent a prisoner to break out free. Case 1 : Assume the bars are horizontal. In this case, the prisoner has a better ...

This is kind of user experience, so... This is a wild guess, but if they were horizontal, prisoners can use the added support of gravity to bend them. They fit better in the ground. Usually the distance from ground to ceiling is shorter than the distance between side walls. Prisoners can use horizontal bars to hang themselves. Horizontal bars are easy to ...
