comment Empty Profile Pic options?
Or if it's not a competing social network, you can use the trick sparrow used: they simply grabbed the profile pic of the user from facebook based on e-mail address.

comment iPad specific button UX question (rating/feedback interaction system)
OK, well, if you want 5 discrete options, use radio buttons or something similar click-based selection, making sure the target area is large enough (look at Fitt's law) dl.getdropbox.com/u/7067930/checkboxes_heat.png - perhaps using background colors. BTW, sliding works perfectly well in a touch device, esp. a tablet, try it out: jquerymobile.com/demos/1.2.0-alpha.1/docs/forms/slider

comment Scrollbars in right-to-left layout
If TJH has right, perhaps you just have to make sure that you have a margin for the appear-on-scroll scrollbar: it's less problematic when the scrollbar hides the end of the words than when it does hide their beginning characters.

comment Why would Amazon only allow users to add 30 items in a shopping cart at a time?
It can be that over 30, you're unlikely to use consumer shops (as opposed to retail or how it's called which sells to merchants in large quantities). Also it could be, that they see that purchases over 25 are less than 0.01% of all purchases or similar.

comment Do you need a search button with a search box?
That's a model-based assertion, namely, it's based on Norman's cognitive models. Past data shows visibility issues never expire. Our models are built on these researches. People didn't learn drag-n-drop, just certain demographics, we know that. Google had to add back the search button. Where is a research, which shows that users didn't get frustrated?

comment Do you need a search button with a search box?
It's like people getting used to hit ctrl for multiple selects in a selectbox: they won't learn it, ever. The power user generation didn't grow up in two years, baby boomers didn't die out. Was there any new widespread application that forced them to learn this mapping? It's just not worth the screen space to force it. Google Instant failed, there are multiple research on this, like: searchenginewatch.com/article/2128218/… - Change only happens if there is a force, where was it? How could I prove its absence?

comment Suitable alternative to trackbar control
Actually, the problem with this UX in our testing was that it actually hides the number you're currently editing. The Meego team was really desperately trying to come up with something extraordinary when this design was born, yet user research was pushed a bit back. It looks shiny but I have doubts about its worth.
