comment Are forms with infield top aligned labels better than left aligned forms that provide a clear scan line?
UX Movement is known for publishing some controversial patterns. They usually don't substantiate their suggestions with user research. They surely make the case for that pattern, but they compare it only to inline labels, which have horrible usability to begin with. The argument would have been more valid if the new pattern was compared to the current best practice of labels above fields.

Usability standards change much slower than visual styles. 8-year-old research is still valid.

comment Will users open an .ICS attachment?
I agree with you that good UX is imperative. However, your example with Outlook is an edge case (and not a good business or personal productivity practice). However, the default calendar application on mobile devices is usually the place where the user keeps their personal calendar to begin with. That being said, it shouldn't be an either-or solution. Some people will know how to handle attachments while others will find a link to add to their calendar more useful.

I would argue on handling of ICS attachments. GMail, Yahoo, and Live Mail/Hotmail handle them very well. All desktop e-mail clients handle them very well, too. If users are in enterprise environment, their means of accessing e-mail is more than likely to support ICS extremely well.

What's the harm in trying it and seeing how your users behave?
