comment How obvious is it that an element that looks like a flick switch can be clicked?
Another aside: I really don't like the finicky way you have to select "N/A", and actually missed it completely until I read the "WTF" text.

One small observation: I know many web users who have never used iOS.

comment Real-life UX: What's wrong with our coffee maker?
I like option 2—it strikes me as pretty feasible and practical. The comparison with antilock brakes is also very apt. I'm not sure about the pitcher idea; as the wand cools down, the pressure inside drops and it will suck some of the cleaning solution inside. You could get rid of most, maybe all, of it by purging the wand before subsequent use with a burst of steam, but if some got into the boiler it wouldn't be pretty! :)

@JeremyTunnell I may be wrong, but I've been told that although it does get hot enough to kill most bacteria, it won't necessarily kill everything each time it's used. At any rate, warm milk residue (and warm milk in general) is a perfect breeding ground for all sorts of nasties, so I would err on the side of caution! :)

comment Why do most public toilet doors open inwards?
Good call. I ask myself this question every single weekday when I'm forced to use the door handle despite regularly witnessing people not washing their hands after concluding business. (My current workarounds include doing an awkward pirouette and using a couple of quickly discarded tissues.)
