comment How to make a user feel secure when using an iframe for payments
I concur with Peter. A common way to prepare the user for the switch is to use a "Pay with" button to transition to the payment processor. For example, a site using Amazon.com as their payment processor would use Amazon.com's "Pay Now \ Amazon Payments" button. Such images are provided by most payment processors and may foster trust by associating your payment process with a well-known brand.

comment How to go about presenting a large family tree?
No, I was thinking uni-directional arrows would be best.

I recommend against using bidirectional arrows.

comment Should general 404 page be shown to the user if he clicks one-time link second time?
Why not just tell the user "your account is now confirmed" every time they click the link?

+1 for mentioning auto-complete as feedback for a redirection.

comment What are some good examples of guiding people through an infographic or interactive, but without it feeling like it's on rails?
@finiteattention: The framework being demonstrated by that page is not a particularly great framework; there are better, more sophisticated frameworks for creating reactive documents. I think the author of that content created his reactive libraries to promote design ideas (as opposed to demonstrating design ideas in order to promote a reactive library). Further, I don't think the author paid much attention to mobile devices.

comment How do I justify a “friendly view” when a department head is adding “table view” as a requirement?
If your goal is to get work done, all of the benefits you list are more important than "looking nice." Someone who is trying to pull specific information (rather than actually reading information) will prefer it. And of course, the department head might be planning on pasting your data into an excel spreadsheet and running his own reports on it.

comment If nobody reads Privacy Policies or Terms and Conditions, why not change them?
Even if you explicitly state the right column is for convenience and is not legally binding, it still may be legally be risky.

From a legal perspective, choice 1 can be risky. I would consult a lawyer before using it.

comment Responsive vs Full Mobile Solution… with a twist.
These concerns are more about polish than layout. An iPhone5 is very small and should be laid out accordingly, but has very high resolution so should potentially use higher resolution images. As an implementation detail, I believe an iPhone5 will normally claim 320x480 (instead of the true resolution of 640x960), so your layouts probably won't break. However, your images may be more pixelated than necessary if you don't compensate by using higher resolution images (e.g., a 200px wide image in a 100px wide space).

You can detect dpi using the "resolution" media query, but this is an HTML5 query that may not be supported on older devices.

comment How to make it obvious that you can drag things that you normally can't?
@OP: Note that the 4-way arrow should probably be visible even when not hovered.

comment Anyone experienced tree testing of multilingual website?
More technical issues include culture-specific date/time/number/currency formatting, obscure case sensitivity issues (e.g., the Turkey Test), right-to-left vs left-to-right issues, encoding issues.

comment Do “extended” batteries really affect user experience?
Not having the phone hit a lower battery level constitutes a user benefit. If my phone was regularly hitting 10% (yet never hitting 0%), I would probably want an extended battery.

comment Will users understand the concept of “version zero”?
@Urbycoz: 2 of those 4 digits are for more technical people. That is, you announce the first 2 digits but used the last 2 to differentiate between different versions of the same product release (e.g., one of those extra digits could be a build number that increments on every compile). Only the first 2 digits are normally used within advertisements and promotional material, but you may use the last two digits for technical support (e.g., determining if your users are up to date on patches).

comment Best UI to allow expert users to enter an ip address? (IPv4)
As for decimal representation, that is usually the format I see within data (SQL tables, CSV files, etc.)

comment Displaying varying prices
As a minor enhancement to this suggestion, I recommend highlighting Sat/Sun in a slightly different color.
