comment Why is text justified in newspapers, but not on the web?
@totymedli Newspapers have short lines because you often read them in bad environment: shaky trains, while walking, etc. Short lines make it easier to switch to the next line correctly (i.e., without skipping lines or re-reading them)

comment Users entering the wrong decimal separators for US$ amounts
@Dorus EU is not at all unified in this. In France, they easily write 123.456$78 for a hundred dollars something.

comment Users entering the wrong decimal separators for US$ amounts
That's even worse: remember that users don't read what they should, and easily enter 123.45 in the first field and nothing in the second one. With your method, it's 12 thousand something, whereas they meant 1 hundred something.

comment Users entering the wrong decimal separators for US$ amounts
This is a common thing to accountants and cashiers (it's on many cashdesks and even CC terminals), but it's very counter-intuitive to other people.

comment How to enforce shoes removal in a lobby/house?
Please, specify where from Europe you are. I've never worn shoes inside an apparment, not even on a visit, and not even in France. All my French hosts understood my preference of not wearing shoes inside (it's always been friends to whom I could explain things).

comment how to represent disabled cells into a table with alternate row color
@PEC If a small icon, I would make it either "forbidden icon" (O slash) or a slashed pencil (which incidentally looks almost like an X mark)

comment how to represent disabled cells into a table with alternate row color
@PEC If they are empty, does that mean you can put anything in the contents? In that case, you could fill them with some short explanatory text (something like "(not editable)" or whatever suits your precise application), written in a distinguishable font.

comment Is there a UX reasoning for low-placed TVs?
Sorry, people buy what they are sold, and not always what they want to. And maybe there is a misunderstanding, if one sits comfortably in a sofa, his neck is further away from the TV than his lower back, so the natural view is slightly upwards, not downwards...

comment Is there a UX reasoning for low-placed TVs?
Your link really seems to be about "table solutions", where people sit or stand next to a screen and interact with it. I'm not sure this is the case of TVs. Also, chairs and sofas seem to have quite different ergonomics (or how is it called)

comment Is there a UX reasoning for low-placed TVs?
I'm not really convinced the advice is literally identical for monitors and for TVs. Most sofas are bend backwards so that you're half-lying in it, therefore "in line with eyes" is upwards... Or you're sitting in a chair, but then you're sitting higher than in a sofa...

(This is my 1st question here, I hope it's in the scope. Certainly, comments are welcome.)

comment Why do USB flash drives never provide for labels?
I think you miss one thing: Many flash drives are "personal" -- you may own 10 of them that you got for free somewhere, but you use only one, whence no need for labelling.
