comment Stop user opening links in a new tab
@Shog9 — Exactly. What about the following other “clever” idea ? “Disabling right click.”

comment Stop user opening links in a new tab
This is a very bad idea. This is not accessible. Furthermore, disguising your fake links as true links makes the users wonder why they are buggy. Thus the users think your site is crappy. And they are right.

comment Why do physical keyboards still have built-in numpads?
@Luaan — Exactly. On french keyboards, the top row of digits needs Shift. I press Shift 2 to enter a 2.

I would like to actually see the keys of the Warcraft keyboard. We cannot see them, they are too small on the photo.

@Mladen — But a smard card reader in keyboard is a bonus. A keyboard is for keys to type. The numeric keypad is a group of keys to type. So it's perfectly at its place on a keyboard.

I did not get what you mean about the 30 s timeout.

comment Selecting multiple folders
Choosing which types of files you backup is very different from choosing folders to backup. If you choose by file types, this has to be very clear in the software. Even though, as a user I would hate such an idea.

comment Should I use Yes/No or Ok/Cancel on my message box?
@Memet — To cancel which action ? ;-) They could have made it worse. Some dialogs do not have the close cross. On Mac, this is even usual, most dialogs do not have the close (red) light.

The Skype dialog really makes knots to the brain. It is a very good example of what not to do.

comment Should I use Yes/No or Ok/Cancel on my message box?
@Michael — In your examples, Apple does not reverse the button order. The buttons are in the good order, with the action button being the last one. Regarding the button Cancel being the default button : yes this is unusual, but this is justified for an action bearing a huge risk such as formatting a volume.
