comment Responsive Design - How to deal with wide HTML Tables
Our dev went for transparent PNGs and absolutely positioned divs. There may be better ways to accomplish this, but that was the quick and dirty way

comment Responsive Design - How to deal with wide HTML Tables
I disagree, MCeley. I ran into this with a client not long ago and I can't think of how i would display tabular data (taking the implementation fully out of, I couldn't really figure out how it should look). Long tables are really nasty.

comment Language selection: top or bottom of the page?
To msanford, I don't know that this is a good place for below the fold/above the fold. It's about the scenario. If they have enough of a percentage of users that need to change the language, they shouldn't have to search for this function (as searching an English site is difficult for a non-native speaker). Above and obvious makes sense. If it's a secondary piece, then below is fine, but my preference is still both.

Benny's comment came in while i posted my answer. Agreed on use both. This is good redundancy not bad.

comment UI to let user pick some movies (3 - 6) from all movies released till now (>1 M)
I minored in Film Studies in college, yet when presented with "List your top 5 movies" I freeze. It's often times hard to pick when you consider the large breadth of movies most people have seen, and even harder when people really LIKE most movies they see. Too many choices, not enough memory space :D

comment How to present content behind a paywall to unregistered users
I think it's very easy for a UX person to write off paywalls (I know, because I've done it personally from inside the newspaper industry), but I think once that decision is made, it's our job to make sure the user isn't frustrated trying to sign up and make sure we align the business goals with user expectations. Paid content is more and more prevalent, so it's important to not make it a frustration for a user to give you money. Also, see my answer below.

comment Why is a manual transmission so complicated?
Not all interactions can be simplified. As others have mentioned the simplification of the Manual transmission IS the automatic transmission, so when faced with a complex issue, make it easily learnable. When you rest your hand on the stick and learn how third gear "feels" that's a nice natural learnability.

comment How do I make tablet ported game controls feel “native”?
I thought about suggesting the accelerometer (and your approach described is interesting, and I'd play that game to try it), but I'm convinced there IS no good way of using it :D

I've played a few like that, most recently, The Amazing Spiderman port does it that way (though they only give about a third of the screen to it, as clicking on the middle changes perspective). The spiderman port has its own issues, but that part at least works pretty well.

comment A good ux patten for search box in the landing page vs. search box in other pages?
What's confusing about option 1? I might not be visualizing it right, but I feel like having it be the main focus on the homepage and allowing it to be smaller in the header on other pages is fine, as long as the other pages are consistent.
