comment Scrollbar on the left
Agree with #2 pretty strongly. I don't think there's deep research on the subject; it's a suboptimal solution that became a convention based on tech limitations of the time

comment Scrollbar on the left
The Fitts' Law piece doesn't apply at all to right vs. left. If it's on the left, you still have infinite surface area, just in the opposite direction, and can "throw" just as hard :)

comment How should I interview UI and IA job applicants?
I think design, just like any other trade, is something you should be able to verbalize to others if you have truly internalized the skill. Even if that's not true, I'm sure most interviewers will make the assumption

comment What are some alternatives to the phrase “Are you sure you want to XYZ” in confirmation dialogs?
@Rahul: Agree with you. The concept here is nice (if you can't support Undo) but the labeling is really weird. Even the "No Going Back" button. I think Can Not Undo is sort of like an "I agree to the terms" kind of confirmation, but that's just my guess

comment Best way to select a typeface?
Readability not aside, traditionally serifs are preferred for long passages. That changed with the first digital fonts but we're approaching the rules of print media with modern screens and I think it's safe to apply this rule again. But it's a very broad assumption and breaks under some specific fonts for sure.

comment Why does the Redbox machine have barriers around the credit card swipe reader?
Looks like spammers/scammers don't limit themselves to ruining web-based interfaces (reminding me of captcha, password strength validation, etc)

comment How to become a User Experience Designer?
"terminologies and technical things" value is relative to the position. If you're joining a big team where you need to communicate intra-team, this is important. If you're the sole UX person, not as important. In fact it may be counterproductive!

comment Whats a better user experience: A scrollable table or a full size table allowing the browser window to do scrolling?
Similar to Charles' comment below (but inverse?), a nice touch here is to make the column headers a fixed position once you scroll past them, and anchor them to the top of the page, so the context stays in view. +1 for only 1 scrollbar on the page
