comment Number of items in skeleton loader
@NirSmadar note that facebook is doing this with an infinite list/scroll--which would be a bit different than a finite list of users.

comment The Profile Page at Work?
"they are recognizing the value of open individual knowledge sharing" = do you write brochures for Microsoft? :)

comment What is the best email address format for people with the same first and last name?
Not sure 'taxonomy' is the right term here. I think perhaps you mean 'format'?

comment How to design an app for multiple platforms, say iOS and Android?
Again, you don't need to. It depends on the app and the needs of the app.

There is no requirement that I know of that iOS have a back button.

comment Are these typical product pages distracting? (Aesthetics vs. UX balance)
I think that's a valid theory. It could be bloat, though it could be validated content as well. Regardless, I think #2 is where you really want to go given that you are a startup. Start with the MVP. Build up as you validate the need.

So, to answer the question directly: I don't know if Amazon's pages are distracting, but they are the way they are because they work for Amazon. If they were detrimentally distracting, then Amazon likely would have changed them.

@user3210476 it's be hard to give any specific list of pros/cons without a whole lot more context and details. That said, realize that there's a lot more to Amazon's UX than 'the look'. But also note that Amazon puts a ton of time and money into their UX.

comment How do blind people cook?
"sensors vibrate or make a sound when the heat is encountered" = I think you're over-engineering here.

comment What control should I use to indicate multi-select lists on iOS?
As an aside, these are essentially checkboxes. So they work well for this.

@JackMaddington what does being able to see have to do with knowing when you can pick up a hot pot? Heat isn't visual on a pot. Whether one can see or not, they have the same challenge in figuring out if a pot is too hot to touch.

You don't have to 'see' heat. You can feel it.

Look at the product they produce?

I like that all these suggestions tend to help everyone.

Typically, keeping in mind the same things you'd hopefully do for anyone: keep it simple, make the questions clear, make it only as long as needed, etc.

comment Common reason to use italic font style in select places of GUI?
Note that with proper markup, on should be able to change the style as needed when a non-roman character set is being used.

comment Are ipads used horizontally or vertically?
Note that what 'wins out' may not have any actual correlation to people's preferences...it could simply because what 'won out' has more apps that are locked into that view (denying the user the choice in the first place).

comment Pros and Cons of a grid/dot grid based Futuristic UIs
I agree. Aside from the map, the examples are all using the grid purely for visual interest...which is sometimes fine. Sometimes chart junk. (As for the map, maps use grids, so there's some valid arguments for that)
