comment What's the difference between [website.com/directory] and [domain.website.com]?
@ArlaudPierre Mostly a way of how you view things. Apple.com and Google.com are subdomains of the .com domain. Apple.example.com and Google.example.com are in the same way subdomains of .example.com domain.

comment What's the difference between [website.com/directory] and [domain.website.com]?
A subdomain is not part of the site, but can and should be considered a different computer/location/server, a subdirectory should be considered part of a site on the same server as other subdirectories on that site.

comment What's the difference between [website.com/directory] and [domain.website.com]?
Traditionally domain.website.com and website.com can be two different computers sometimes even at other sides of the world. It's just that the computer at website.com has the adressbook for all subdomains.

I would love a button in my browser to send websites the message: "be standards compliant", do you think that could work?

comment How to assign values to buckets
Option 1 uses checkboxes implying that an item can also be in both bucket A and B or in neither. Radiobuttons (the round version) would be a better choice.

comment Avoiding designing by committee
People are natural complainers. So next time you present a design make sure there are 1 or more subtle defects you're sure they notice. They'll complain about those, you say ok and fix them. if you present a perfect design, they'll still find stuff regardless.

comment Do “extended” batteries really affect user experience?
1600/1450= 1.1034, which translates in 10.3% more, not 9. Also my smartphone easily runs 3 days, 72 hours and a 7 hour increase would be certainly noticable.

comment Benefits gained by forcing users to register to access content?
Have you ever thought that those sites main business is not providing you the information but getting your details and that that white-paper is just a bait to get you to give out your details? Ofcourse they're not interested in handing out the paper to you without signing up if that's their business model.

comment Keyboard shortcuts on non-QWERTY keyboard layouts
In that sense it's all about muscle memory, when you need to copy something, does your mind go like ohw I need to press ctrl+c or do your fingers already do the action before you start thinking about how to do it? Actually in some sense you could argue that any use of a key is using a shortcut, and you can't tell me that clicking a virutal keyboard is faster then blind typing.

comment Is a language switcher necessary on a web site's every page?
"The search engine shouldn't be directing people to resources that aren't in their own language." Say what? I'm Dutch and often get and want results in English and/or German.

comment Conditioning users
You have here the question whether you are designing for new or experienced users. Some solutions might be counterintuitive at first to new users but more practical to users who are trained.

comment In what situations is a “barrier to entry” training requirement before use appropriate?
In a lot of the cases with ux-es with a high barrier, it's because when trained things can be done more efficiently.
