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

comment How do I make tablet ported game controls feel “native”?
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.

comment What's used more to submit a search, enter or submit button?
LukeW's "clear path to completion" definitely plays into this, I'd add that giving them a call to action allows the user to finish the form in his or her own way. I'm an "enter/return" guy, but I know plenty of people (less-than-tech-savvy) that will ALWAYS click an action and don't understand that enter does the same thing.

comment How do I represent null values in a line chart?
Can you post a mockup or wireframe for this? I think I understand, but it would be helpful to see the exact context

comment What fields to drop from the registration form?
If your goal is to get a user to sign up, the fewest fields necessary to have a unique ID, is the right number, like ChrisF said. I'll say this, look at the way LinkedIn does things, they nag you in a very Game Theory way to complete your profile ("Enter this info to get 5% closer to being complete!")
