comment Do capital letters make you seem serious?
I actually didn't miss the capitals at the beginning of the sentences that much. I only began to groan when I got to the "new york" bit.

comment Why is backslash called BACK slash when arguably it points forward?
@Lan The official, formal Unicode for the \ is REVERSE SOLIDUS, and Unicode does not have a character with the name BACKSLASH.

comment How to convince a client that the website doesn’t need to be too animation-driven to stand out?
The most successful website in the world doesn't use animation for a splash screen. Heck, it doesn't even have a splash screen.

comment How to best avoid confirmation bias when surveying about features?
Make the first option a nonsense option that's never going to be implemented anyway.

comment Wake Up key on keyboard
Ah, OK. Thanks! You should add that to the answer, by the way; it might get lost as a comment.

comment Wake Up key on keyboard
OK. I'm not entirely sure what your screenshot is saying with S3 and S4, but I'll take your word for it! My computer's BIOS has "USB wake up" that you can enable or disable, but no "keyboard wake up".

comment Wake Up key on keyboard
What I'm most curious about is, have there been systems that could only be woken up with the WakeUp key? Or was the implementation always "all keys can wake the system up" from the beginning?

comment What do the 3 close horizontal bars (not hamburger menu) represent and what is the origin of the design?
In your last remark, if you mean the hamburger menu, no. That icon is meant to be a stylised representation of the menu. There are other questions about it, for instance here.

comment Should button positions ever rearrange depending on available functionality?
Can't you put all the "universal" buttons to the right and the article-specific buttons to the left of them? (In this example, you would have Fingers, Colour, Fabric, On Sale.) That way, the gap will always be to the left of the visible buttons.

comment Flexible natural language input field design
If the user interface is difficult to remember (or to guess) just add a quick explanation in plain text about the options ("type 2 spaces when done"). Also, you can give them more exit choices by combining options 1 and 2: user can exit by tapping elsewhere or by tapping the autocomplete field that is echoing their input. Or you can use Enter for exit.

comment Why do web browsers ask if they should be the default browser?
Accepting this one, although it's more conjecture than an official answer, but I'm starting to believe there is no official answer anyway.

comment Why do web browsers ask if they should be the default browser?
@JonW That's what I said in my question: yes, the OS has that abolity. Then why do the browsers need that ability too? I mean, when you start up a browser, it's not the operating system that asks.

comment Why do web browsers ask if they should be the default browser?
1) But Google Chrome wasn't even around when the Browser Wars started! and 2) Why doesn't gedit ask if it can be made the default text editor? Why doesn't MS Outlook ask if it should be the default Exchange client? It doesn't make sense!
