comment How to take advantage of white space on a blank interface
A 'useful default' is useful in that it's there. It shows the type of actual content that can be created/stored.

@BartGijssens name them 'sample playlist 1'. As for HOW TO ADD a playlist, if that's not already apparent in the UI, there are bigger issues.

Interesting that this got downvotes. This is not an uncommon solution.

comment What are slabs of screen sizes for developing apps for mobile devices(including tablets) ?
You don't want to design based on inches but rather on actual screen pixel dimensions (while accounting for high density displays)

Never heard it referred to as 'slab'. Regardless, what you want to do is responsive design...accommodate them all.

comment Is “UX” as an abbreviation for “user experience” meant to be ironic?
It's a nice theory, but 'X' is a common way to abbreviate any word beginning with *x... so it's likely due to common usage more than anything. As for concerns about people outside the world of UX, it's somewhat moot as the term is really a term solely used internally. All fields have their own jargon. This is one of ours.

comment UX gains by embedding a responsive website into apps?
ah, gotcha. Well, in the grand scheme of things, those app store licenses are fairly minor.

comment What's the best type of car key?
There is no 'best' key. It's all dependent on context and objectives. That said to meet 'ease of use' and 'durability' the best key is an electronic one (such as RFID).

comment Responsive design - setting a single breakpoint?
Compromising UX to accommodate QA is likely not the best UX strategy. I'd question the need to check so many devices, though. The point of responsive is that it's device agnostic.

comment Usage of mouse click or replacing with hover
@HenrikEkblom that is cool. However, I don't how practical of a gesture that'd be. Neat, but not necessarily usable. :)

comment Metrics to gauge website design visual appeal
Hmm...well, I'm not a harvard researcher, so likely not qualified to provide a proper answer, but in a cursory look at the research, I think my context comment still stands. For example, one of the web pages they measured was Typographica. What the general population thinks of that page is really irrelevant. All that matters is what people highly interested in type thinks. So, my uneducated conclusion: your sex and nationality likely aren't the primary factors a designer should be considering when coming up with a visual design for a site.

comment Metrics to gauge website design visual appeal
Are you asking us our opinion of the research? If so, I think we'd need a link to said research. My main gut-reaction beef would be 'colorful' is both a vague term as well as so dependent on context that said general findings are rather useless.

comment Sending users to a 3rd-party site and then back
at that level, I think offering a PDF of instructions may be the most usable solution. The end-user can then open it up and put it next to their browser as they go (or print it out). There's no way you can technically connect to something like an IRS form though and inject 3rd party hep content.
