comment Is a book more user friendly than an e-book?
+1 for a well research answer. I do question whether paper can be "zoomed" in any meaningful way as compared with an e-reader (unless you have a real life magnifying glass). I'm also not sure I understand what is meant by "multiple displays". As for legibility, I would say that paper still has a slight advantage due to higher resolution (1200 dpi vs 300 dpi max on an e-reader).

comment With infinite scrolling, do scrollbars still make sense?
Well, I enjoyed the discussion anyway. Hopefully, you'll find what your you're looking for.

comment With infinite scrolling, do scrollbars still make sense?
Yes, the scrollbar wasn't intended for dynamically expanding pages, and yes, the scrollbar track always represented the whole document. However, making the slider proportional to indicate page size was a later advancement, one that I would consider an evolution (and a very helpful one at that).

comment ZIP input or ZIP+4
+1. I agree, and I think Zip+4 also might help resolve discrepancies if you make a typo in entering your address.

comment ZIP input or ZIP+4
I appreciate your research, but I disagree with your conclusion. As a user, I feel better when sites allow me to enter my Zip+4 because it provides an extra level of error checking. If I made a typo entering the address, the Zip+4 acts as an extra check to make sure my important package arrives at the right place at the right time. Even if I'm completely wrong about this, and the Zip+4 is just ignored, I still feel better as a user, and I think that alone makes it worth having an optional +4 when entering a zip code.
