comment How can I get people not to put trash in recycling bins?
In an office I'll bet 90% of the recyclables are bottles and cans, so placing a lid with a hole in it just big enough for bottles and cans on the recycle container will get you some benefit.

comment What are the benefits of using a black cursor with white outline, over white with black?
@BenC.R.Leggiero - Smalltalk was the first system to bring together windows, icons, menus and pointers (WIMP). It was the inspiration for the Mac UI.

comment Should a call to action float in a long page?
A CTA that's too prominent and "follows me around" is really irritating. Be careful not to make it too overbearing.

The Mac UI was inspired by early Smalltalk UIs, which had a black pointer (without outline)

comment Are dial format speedometers more effective than numeric speedometers?
Thanks tohster. That U. Michigan link you posted is the most informative thing I've found so far. Thanks. The fact that's it's a scanned document probably means it wasn't indexed by google and explains why it wasn't found by my searches.

I was actually discussing the issue with one of the authors of the ustwo article and that led me to post my question here. One of my points in that discussion is that they hadn't performed/consulted enough research to make to make some of the assumptions they were making.

@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.
