comment Search vs. Look Up
@Dmacatude No, he won't. I'm pretty sure he/she will survive. We are not talking about any dramatically important or fundamental issues here. "Search" will do. "look up" will do too. Both are understandable in this context. Nevertheless there is this small distinction between the two. You do not look up in a room for something, you do not "search" if you are selecting from a list (see Classroom look up). You may either look up or search a word in a website, but it may be slightly more "look uppy" or slightly more "searchy" depending on the way the site works.. :)

comment Is skeumorphism dead?
And if I can add, in most cases like in the calculator example, the UI is absolutely identical: you press the same keys (maybe graphically more spacey) and get the same results, same functionality and interactions, so it comes more to graphic design then user interface (though not always). There is practically no user interface modification.

@DallonF You are right, I modified my post to add "in my opinion" to "most hated windows version ever".

@GWv (I thought I wrote: "I like flat designs most" somewhere in the text...) Anyway the answer is in one line: "Go with your users, not the trends." the rest is just trying to explain what I mean with that. Had the question been more specific, in this case or that, I could have just answered "no, don't" or "why not".

Only few downvotes? I expected many more, really. :)

comment Has user testing found that the “three horizontal bars” for main menu on mobile is commonly understood?
The fact that FB and G use it, does not really imply people fully understand it, because people are strongly motivated to use FB and G, so if they get confused or pissed off they will try to understand, ask, learn and get familiar with the new icons. So G and FB can actually force habits on people, and people will follow, but the same does not probably apply to our app. If icon is not clear, they go. Of course after G and F use the same icon for long (and many others follow them) everybody gets used to it, and so it becomes a well established standard (like Youtube play button over videos).

In all these cases the hamburger icon is not alone, it is near other icons and that is well understood as a "toolbar", users understand there are "commands", explore touching the icons and discover content. The same applies to the "little world" Facebook Icon, could you imagine it as clearly understandable if it was alone?
