comment Labelling inputs in HTML: <p>, placeholder or both?
I agree. Keep in mind that placeholders may be 100% appropriate as the only label on mobile devices.

comment Are increase and decrease arrows redundant on scrollbars?
How does she use even the most basic software if she doesn't use sliding? I don't see how you could use any android or iOS devices this way. She just looks at the frist few settings in the settings app? Or just the top of the webpage she's browsing? This sounds like an extreme edge-case user.

comment Are increase and decrease arrows redundant on scrollbars?
I agree. My mom still uses them. She's just about the only person I've seen use them. So if you're designing for younger crowds, I wouldn't say they're necessary.

comment “Back to Top” alternate wording?
In those particular examples I would expect the arrows to collapse each individual section. I would be rather annoyed if I had browed very far down the page it thinking I could collapse something it shot me back up to the top so I'd have to find my place again. I find one, distinct, fixed button, separate from other content to be most effective.

comment Two panel multi select on mobile
You're right, the UI would have to be modified for touch. I was thinking just tapping on an item would move it to the added pane, and another tap would remove it. Perhaps there would be icons indicating the actions that would happen on tap, or a shot explanation sentence, since it is a new UI to mobile.

That UI doesn't work well when you have hundreds of options (possibly thousands). It would take forever to modify or find the symbols I'm looking for. You could add a search bar, but then you have to search for every symbol you may want to remove, and there's no easy way to see all the symbols you've added.
