I work in transportation human factors engineering and research for land, sea, and air. My work in usability/UX includes user interface design, design guide development, empirical testing, and expert evaluation. My human factors research focuses on automation, displays, and security and safety processes. I've advanced degrees in engineering and psychology and been working in the field since 1995. My contributions to this site are my personal opinion and do not represent the policies or position of my employer or any of its associated agencies. Not that anyone was wondering.

@Perchik: Yes, if you can afford more vertical space for the graphs, that will help. It may also provide room for meaningful labeling of the y-axis. I made the mock-ups by creating the graphs in Excel and pasting screen snips into your illustration, edited in MS Paint.

comment When to use icons vs. icons with text vs. just text links?
@Jon: The originator of the Mac HIG has criticized the Dock for this (asktog.com/columns/044top10docksucks.html), so you’d think the designers would know better. My guess is they did it because they thought it looked cool. It’s not the only time Apple has traded away usability for aesthetics.
