comment ALL CAPS fonts for industrial use
@EvilClosetMonkey - that's exactly what I was implying. The answer could give one the impression that all caps are always better.

Universal Principles of Design states: "People recognize words by letter groups and shapes. Uppercase text is more difficult to read than sentence case and title case because the shapes of uppercase words are all rectangular." I suspect this is correct in some situations (long text for non-impaired)?

Great answer. Just one warning with relation to data - data is often neither easy to collect nor analyse. I've set in meeting looking at KPIs, CRO data, Analytics data, and most of the time nobody really has a freaking clue why things happen or what do the numbers mean. By all means, data and research are great, but in practice it is easier said than done.

comment Assigning to multiple groups
It's really hard to provide concrete solutions to abstract problems. It would help if you gave examples of objects, containers and groups.

Fitts' law, while still considered seminal and valid, has been under scrutiny from the research community, with more accurate models emerging, specifically with relation to touch interfaces. See this research paper from Google. Also, having distance at its very core, applying Fitts' law to thumb to screen is rather loose. This research paper serves as a much stronger argument to your point.

Actually, in an image/text combo the eye will nearly always land on the image first, and if you look at saccade pathways on images, patterns are loose and heavily depend on the image and context, but hardly ever follow an orderly pattern, let alone one involving the edges. See, for example, one of the first saccade pathway images.
