comment Do input box highlights improve user experience?
Alternately: there is no benefit to someone who is not using a mouse OR a keyboard (e.g. mobile users). That's the primary reason hover effects are falling out of vogue.

comment The Pinterest Trap
@JGS: Speaking as someone who has made the switch to tablets (my three computers are a Surface, an iPad, and a Nexus), I'd appreciate it if you didn't use hover-states. If you have to use them, think of a fall-back for people who can't access that part of the content.

comment How to highlight the selected option when there are only 2 elements
@MikeBrown: I don't think your question is as relevant with this design. In the above example it's extremely clear what is selected and what can be selected.
