comment Should a toggle button show its current state or the state to which it will change?
@supercat: you are right, for the cases where the immediate behaviour doesn't provide immediate feedback. On the other hand, it is really nice to be able to alternate stop and play of a video without repositioning the mouse, like in youTube. Different cases would require adequate solutions.

comment Best practice for no records found?
As I see it (without beint a native English speaker) the word "records" in an IT context means the parts that make a computer file, but it also has a meaning to normal people like when somebody says "let me check my records", that is similar to the computer file related meaning but is not IT specific. So I'll go with the generic "no records found".

comment Should I avoid changing a “clunky” UI?
@Gutblender: before doing anything I'd check if this behavior is really annoying for the users, or it annoys me and only me.

Also, it is not clear how to open a link in a new tab in an iPad or iPod's browser.

comment Is this rotating cube interface user-friendly?
I think the cube should rotate much faster, to give the user more opportunities to enter data. This would allow to add more fields to the form!

comment Next vs. Continue
"Next" is informative, while "Continue" is imperative. I try not to tell the users what to do so I'd use "Next".

comment Is the term 'field' too technical when giving messages on a form?
@Bart Gijssens: it is terminology from the 80-column card punch; a "field" was the term for several consecutive columns containing a single data item, like for example 6 cols containing a pre-Y2K date. The set of all fields is a "recod".

comment Should image overlays have a close button?
There are two use cases: 1- The user wants to play safe 2- The device doesn't have an "Esc" key (mobile) and touching somewhere else might trigger some other action.
