@MarkBubel - I'm trying to quantify that price, looking for current data to help me "make the decision".

comment Hamburger menu on big screen - what do you lose?
@DLM that's a similar question but not the same. I think you're more or less stuck with nav accessed via hamburger button on small devices, and users of small devices understand the pattern. But I'm asking about accessing the nav menu via hamburger button on a big (desktop/laptop) device. I know there's a price to be paid for that in terms of people simply not noticing it, hence not finding what they might want to find. I'm looking for how much of a price you pay. Basically, I want to talk someone out of using hamburger nav on a desktop screen.

comment Roboto and others sans serif typefaces
Typography is evolving to facilitate small screens (phones, etc.). Plus Google's branding and design guidelines are getting more sophisticated. I'd say it's a natural evolution. Google's trying to achieve a more consistent look and better readability. This is just my guess, I'm not an expert on typography.

comment At which point are ethical guidelines and practices applied in a UX design process?
@MichaelLai - I don't the there are such things as "basic principles of privacy, transparency and equality". It depends on both the domain and the culture. I guess my main contention here is that ethics is not a UX issue, that UX pros must rely on ethics experts (of the given domain) and not bring this into the gigantic umbrella that is UX. Very interesting subject you brought up, hope we get more opinions in this thread.

@Quincunx - yep, there's no way to stop someone typing in an URL when they know it. But that wasn't the question.
