Why would you not want to use version 2? What do you want to achieve with a combination? If your "users are not very good at reading charts", is a chart the right thing to use?

comment Avoiding the Hermann grid illusion
@aslum: I already wondered (in all seriousness) whether putting faint grey dots there would actually "stabilize" the issue.

comment What's the reason some places use milk bags instead of milk jugs or other means?
@JoanVenge: laugh It's just a motor memory, awoken: standing there with a bag of milk lifted. You pick one bag from the bag/milk soup, pinching it at one corner, lifting it carefully as not to splatter milk over you. With all weight resting on one bottom corner, you try to figure out whether the milk dropping from it is from the outside or the inside - quickly, so you do not get stern words from the shopping courtesy police. Repeat for all corners.

No, consumer goods were almost completely replaced after the fall of the wall. Few products survived, and milk bags were not one of them - with one leaky bag in the tray, every bag looked leaky. I still have some nostalgia for the actual procedure of checking all corners, though. Plus, less garbage etc.

@PacMani: it was very common in East Germany.

To clarify: is this user interface for me to enter a trip which I will make later this day, and for which I'm looking to pick up some passengers?

comment What are the UI/UX guidelines for data heavy modern style Windows apps?
It would be nice if you could post the results of your exploration - maybe in a blog post and link it here. Contemporary UX for complex data entry is largely neglected, a single example can be helpful for others.

In all honesty, I've never seen a range selection slider that doesn't suck in production.

comment Why did scrolling vertically became a pattern?
Pointing out the commodore made me realize that with the typical line-by-line video memory layout (compatible with how cathode ray tubes tended to work), scrolling vertically and appending one line is somewhat easier than horizontally - faster, too in many cases (e.g. with bank-switched memory). I doubt however that it makes sense to argue this affected layout decisions.

comment Upgrade experience for PaaS/ SaaS offers: should I care about seamless upgrades?
ok - but IMO the answer for a RTL is completely different from the answer for an end user product, so it would help if you were more specific.
