comment Alternative for the hamburger icon in webapps
For websites, I believe it’s best to still review the IA but instead of using these iOS patterns, simply display the navigation in the website header as a list - example. - right from the first article you cited. Also, why would you assume that the problem they describe is shared between apps and websites, but the solution is specific to apps? It doesn't make sense. If you agree with them, place a toolbar look alike on your web page.

I still find it confusing. Your title seems to ask if it's "state of the art" (whatever you understand under the term). In the body, you seem to be convinced that it is not state of the art, based on two articles you have read. So, your title and body contradict each other. And then you ask what to use instead - when both articles tell you that the problems they speak of are solved by using a Tab bar.

I find the 'whys' there well explained and illustrated. Even when the author uses jargon ("navigation friction"), the context seems sufficient to understand it. Your question would be much more answerable if you can explain what exactly you don't understand in the article. It might turn out that your question title is misleading, and what you need is not an explanation of hamburger icons (which is explained in the article) but of basic UX concepts which the article uses but are not known to you yet.

I don't understand the question. The two sources you cite already discuss all of your points. So, what are you asking here exactly?

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about communication with one's business partner.

comment UX Process / Requirements
I agree, your situation is pretty bad, and I hope that you find a way out of it. But I don't see how a question here helps you, and worse, I don't think this question fits the rules. If you are asking if what he's doing is correct, then no, but you already know it. If you are asking how to communicate to your business partner so he doesn't feel slighted, then this is not a UX problem. If you are asking how to teach an unqualified person to be a requirements engineer, then it is too broad. I wish you the best, but I will still vote to close. Other communities may be better suited for advice.

comment Would you consider Trolls while creating personas?
@edgarator I don't have convenient access to this information right now. Ian Alexander and Andrea Herrmann are two names which come to mind having published in this field (separately), try looking for their publications and the term "misuse cases", it is very specific.

comment Is the button placement in Linkedin's new invitation dropdown correct?
@SurendraVikramSingh I have no opinion on the vertically moving cursor, as I haven't had the chance to play with this design (I don't use a mobile LinkedIn application). As for the left vs. right, this is a platform convention as Benny Skogberg explained.

comment Is the button placement in Linkedin's new invitation dropdown correct?
@MattObee the way I understand it, the OP's "accidental" deleting means his finger slipped to the deletion icon unintentionally, presumably starting from the button which opens the invitation list. Or, maybe he was aiming for the upper icon but hit the lower one because it is below it. Anyway, I think the aligning he shows is not supposed to suggest any semantic connection.

comment Can't properly redesign GUI to get better user experience
I see one problem in your assumptions here: you seem to conflate "optimize screen space" (in the sense of packing the controls closer together) and "better user experience". This is not the same thing; in fact, it is frequently better to use lots of white space in design, as a visual hint for groupings. Oh, and entering data is seldom "pleasant", it is at best "non-annoying", and the physical arrangement of the controls is rarely a major source of annoyance. Unless you managed to mix up unrelated entry fields (which you didn't, I can read it), problems are likely to arise elsewhere.

comment Slider control when there is no maximum value
@Ucodia I don't think the BART example applies here, as this is a very different use case. If people really want an exact number, and know it at the beginning, entering it will be better. If this is the case, none of the possible answers to this question will be good, because the OP specifically asked for a UI for incrementing a counter. But I believe it is a different situation, where people want to play around until a number looks roughly OK, not where they want an exact value.

comment How to create a good filtering and sorting system when there are 30+ options to choose from
"The client wants to have all the categories in one filter" - this seems to be your problem there. Clients frequently ask for something which will have a small gain (like saving screen space) without realizing the costs. The accepted pattern here is to have the filters separate - see for example Ravelry's advanced searches. Maybe you should just prototype the ugly, busy version which follows straight from his requirement, and the structured one (with multiple categories separated), and show him both. They are sometimes reasonable when they see the implementation.

comment Acceptance of location requests in websites?
"a big part of the adaptive design is the location part" - somehow it feels to me that you are trying to design here in order to tick off checkboxes with buzzwords. Why do you want this information? How are you going to respond to the location, and how does the user profit from your response to his location? If you don't have a very concrete and convincing answer, the acceptance doesn't matter - it is bad UX, period.

comment How can redicle technology speed up reading up to five times or more?
Very interesting. I typically take 5 to 6 hours for a standard book (a 50 K words novel, textbooks are another matter because reading speed is not the bottleneck there). And I have never used the technology you reference, but I have tried applications which would either a) show one line at a time, or b) scroll the screen such that a new line appears at the speed I'm reading. I find both disorienting, my speed falls, I have trouble concentrating on the text. I wonder if there is some kind of parsing technique I have and you don't, and if this new tech compensates for not having it.

comment A new way to display true / false values to user
This would be my usual choice as well. But there is one thing I hate about these: they are so easy to get wrong. I've seen them so often implemented in such a way that you can't recognize which is the currently active state. So, if you go for these, please get a designer who knows what he's doing and can style the toggle well, to make it really obvious. It's one of the places where skeuomorphic works best, so if your designer is on the "flat is the best, skueoumorphic is so 2012" bandwagon, please insist that here, usability is more important than slick looks.
