comment What explains the current shift from glossy UIs to matte UIs?
Basically the world is going through a big depression not seen since the Great Depression in the 1930s. This could have some influence on designers and their outlook while designing icons, making them use more muted colours which would reflect their mood and general outlook on life while living in a depression. Obviously it's not as bad as the great depression yet because most designers aren't using black and white icons.

comment How can users be prevented from pouring water into the bean compartment of a coffee machine?
You need a pipe from the water compartment around to the front of the machine so the water flows straight out onto the person pouring the water in. They'll soon get the idea.

comment Is only having a single unmasked password field (no confirm) on a registration page a bad idea?
What about if you used your option, but it just flashed the plaintext password for a second then returned to asterisks?

comment Idea for improved usability for HTML form checkboxes and radio buttons
@Shash check this out, I managed to make the whole table row hoverable (including mouse pointer change) and anywhere you click selects the checkbox. It's pretty good.

Yes display: block on the label works better across browsers. Also the changed background colour on hover is a really nice touch as well. Think I'll use this one, thanks!

Interesting that Safari doesn't do any highlighting of the checkbox on hover. I was doing my testing on Firefox. I think to get the region between the checkbox and label clickable you'd have to wrap the checkbox and text inside the label tag, maybe like in this example.
