@cantsay use your eyes! :)

comment Quizzing users on key points of the EULA?
Also, it seems like your true objective here is to make sure users understand the "Ridiculous terms in the EULA that allows them to get ripped off". I'd suggest that that should be the summary of the EULA.

How to make EULAs more annoying? = add a quiz.

comment What symbols should be used for YES and NO when the user can't read?
But to 'calibrate' the animations to the culture, one would have to be able to read, which isn't a given in this situation.

"Where do I begin?" = determine the objectives of the site. Design from there.

comment Should PDFs open in a new tab?
@AndrewLeach true, though the question tends to blur them via 'tab/window'.

often what security wants/needs conflicts with what is most usable for the end-user. Simple example: CAPTCHAs.

comment single radio button vs 2 radio buttons vs checkbox
Based only on past experience, in any search I recall where case sensitivity was an option, it was a checkbox.

comment Is it realistic to learn UX design and web development at the same time, on top of school?
Yes, it's realistic. Beneficial, even. A CS degree certainly will help any UX endeavors down the road.

comment How to design a precise UX/UI using javascript/jquery web components?
I agree completely with that. I think the OP is asking how to communicate the interactions to the developer, though. (That said, I'm not positive that's the case). @paulmartin can you clarify?

comment How to design a precise UX/UI using javascript/jquery web components?
The catch is that Axure is never "real" compared to what can or has to be built in front end code. There's always gap or mis-translation between the two. Furthermore, IMHO, the more one tries to make Axure fully interactive, the more time it takes than to just code it initially in JS/CSS/HTML in the first place.

comment Why don't operating systems reserve a fixed amount of resources for the GUI?
This is more of a software/hardware engineering question rather than a UX question.

comment What is a good Intranet Experience in 2013?
@BennySkogberg I'll give you that. If you let Sharepoint be sharepoint, and not try to bend it in any other way, it's 'adequate for a few things'. Personally, I suggest building a front end UI/IA in something else, and then use SharePoint as the document repository if need be. (Glad to hear branding is better in 2013, but it was SO BAD in previous versions I'm not sure it's risen to 'good' yet. :)

I'm a little concerned that you may be focusing a bit too much on the technology and looks. While important, the biggest failings of most intranets is content (outdated, irrelevant), usability (poor search tools, poor navigation, poor IA), and lack of functionality.

@forthrin I didn't see this answer before I posted mine. (apologies, Ellis!) I have used the NNG Intranet reports in the past. Of course they're dull (intranets are dull!) :) But they are quite useful with lots of quotable data points and a LOT of screen shots. (But don't focus on screen shots. The key is content, functionality, and usability)

As an ex-sharepoint admin, RUN AWAY FROM SHAREPOINT. Seriously. It's bloatware, lacking polish in a lot of its features, and a serious nightmare to customize beyond the basic templating system.

comment How to send information or link to a user's phone
Are you simply looking for a list of options? SMS is certainly one. Twitter is another. Perhaps something like Instapaper, or google docs. You could also have your own app that syncs between the two.
