comment Why is it called the fold?
So, in other words, it's not a relative term at all for UX on the web.

It should also be noted that 'the fold'--as being an issue on the web--is a myth: boxesandarrows.com/blasting-the-myth-of-the-fold cxpartners.co.uk/cxblog/… uxmyths.com/post/654047943/myth-people-dont-scroll

comment Why say “verify you're a human” when only humans can read it?
"and are necessary" I agree with your post except for that. Captcha's are never necessary. They're just often the easiest solution for the developers.

I don't get the question. What does 'verify you are human' have to do with there being (or not being) a 3rd entity?

comment About fullscreen scrolling webpages
To be fair, that's not even truly navigation. It's really just a pagination tick...ala your iPhone screen. Is it useful? eh...it shows you how much scrolling you have to do. But it doesn't actually help you navigate. Which, again, isn't all bad as these one-page sites are really linear ads. Ads aren't the best UX, of course, but I suppose they have their places.

comment About fullscreen scrolling webpages
"Any thoughts about this?" = alas, that's not a great question for this format. That said, note that most (if not all) of those examples are essentially ads. And ads can get away with being annoying if they draw the right kind of attention.

"Dots on the side, hovering shows the title of that page" = typically referred to as 'mystery meat' navigation and not usually ideal. Though Apple can get away with it for marketing sites. :)

What, exactly, is the problem? I'm not clear on that.

comment What's the deal with the “Shake to send feedback” on Google Maps for Android?
We can't possibly answer this unless we work for Google. That said, one theory: when people are frustrated with a device, they often shake it.

comment Typography in landing page
This isn't a UX question. It' a graphic design question so should be asked there. And it needs a lot more context for it to produce truly helpful feedback.

Yes, graphic design is where to ask. FYI, the ppi settings in photoshop are entirely irrelevant. All that matters is your pixel dimensions.

comment How to allow for 'exploration' in your user testing?
Agreed. And I suppose the problem is simply having overly structured test scenarios. Alas, business often wants to test very specific things which can interfere the concept of 'play and figure it out.

comment How to allow for 'exploration' in your user testing?
@Izhaki oh, absolutely. That's a good point. Actually, that's probably a good answer: "questions should be task based". Alas, that's still somewhat of a problem it that there's still this mentality sometimes that the user is being tested rather than the app. :)

comment How to respond to “We already have a (non-UX) designer; don't bother us”?
It's hard to get companies WITH UX TEAMS to 'get' UX so I can only imagine how daunting it is to do this via cold calls. I wish you luck! :)

comment Does Computer mean Desktop and Laptops?
Mobile first. There's a reason for this. Well, many reasons. But a big one is that more and more people are now accessing the internet solely on mobile devices. I'd suggest that you're better off investing in making these forms less text-heavy and optimized for mobile. As a bonus, it makes them that much easier for those that do have keyboards as well.
