comment What kind of feedback is appropriate for a two-finger drag gesture?
Is this gesture not constrained to any part of the user interface (i.e. context sensitive)? Also, is there are reason to have both one and two finger gesture and how will you distinguish between them?

comment Is the Kano model adaptable for measuring user experience?
@ Hugo Rodger-Brown - It is never to late to chip in with your comment and input. I was disappointed because our company didn't decide to invest further efforts into user research, but I'd be interested to see how it works out for you guys. Care to send some contact details?

comment Behavior of close button and X
The result of the action should be clear to the user, and if you can't change the function of the button then consider letting the user know so that they don't have to guess what happens. Perhaps changing the focus or using some highlighting effect is an alternative.

comment Should I pursue career in UX design if I'm not very passionate about development and visual design?
I see the testing and evaluation as a critical part of the UX design process. After all, we are designing for the users and not ourselves, and there has to be some way for us to validate the assumptions we have made about users, and ways for us to improve the design in a meaningful way. I hope you can be an advocate for more and better research in the UX projects :)

comment User experience metric from individual measurements
One thing that might help is to look at these metrics from the context of individual tasks that the user is trying to complete. Remember that metrics are just there to help you get an overall idea, it doesn't replace understanding the interactions as they take place from a user's point of view.
