comment Which way should be “on” for a switch?
Even in case of light switches the overall action is still to apply pressure like a push button , its easier to push lower part than the upper part, to flip it. This is different from other switches where you have to get hold of it and then move it.

comment Which way should be “on” for a switch?
Symmetrical looking switches are confusing. Apart from that, I find the action "On" or "engaged", more close to actions "lift up" or "move forward to right" (popular reading direction).

comment Should error messages apologize?
I'd agree with that rationale. If user enters invalid input, its a mistake on user's part. And if software fails to do something user rightfully expects, its a mistake on software's part.

comment Can a mobile application be made using a totally flat design?
Its about guiding the user's intuition, and making everything look-alike results in lack of such hinting.

comment Validation / Dirty Flag: should we force users to fix invalid entries before they move to another screen in the software?
Is it mandatory to "Batch-Apply" all the settings at once ? If not you can do an auto-save on valid ones and let user navigate.

comment Why is a manual transmission so complicated?
It's just a technological limitation/dependence of current time, such gear mechanisms are trusted and proven for a long time and all other available alternatives are either too costly, or less trusted. If a new revolutionary design makes its way (like in electric cars) and proves its worth, then it should be adopted... but then, they're already researching self-driving cars.

I think this is a true tabs alternative, since all other forms resort to same link click navigation.
