comment Why do ATM's not adjust to the user?
Most Banks ATM adjust to the user's language just by reading your card country issue number, or fallback to English when local language is different from your own.

comment Is it good to present unlimited data in carousel view?
Carousel is fancy but not usually efficient for finding information in large set. How long does it take to find 3 specific names in both approach ? I'm guessing even typing names will be faster/easier than carousel.

comment Multiselect with Checkbox Strafing
Let user select many lines (drag/ shift or ctrl click) and change the check/unchek of the whole selection to the same state when the user click on one of the check box inside the selection. It's a good way not to create confusion, and give user functionality. Combining Drag to select and drag to check seems dangerous.

As so many users never remove them it's clearly smart advertisement.

comment User Interface Changes for Mac when Porting Windows Application
It's more your choice. If you can made a better UI it will be better for both. If you want to remove some buttons are you sure your mac user will not miss it. If they don't miss it why the PC users need it ? You can go to the Microsoft Word way and adapt interface to be better accepted, you can go to the Adobe photosop way where almost everything is identical.

@AZ. This Library is made to be redistributable. You can make it quiet. Even the vcredistrib.exe is fully automatable by command line. Launch it with /? to see the list of commands

comment When and why should date pickers be used?
Another context. Some datepickers grayed out some days as there are not available or already full. For concert, live show, plane tickets you could even have color by day to show the lowest rate. Sometimes it's not ONLY a picker it contains information.

comment Secure but still usable license key retrieval mechanism?
One problem I had a few years ago. The licence was brought with an email. But the company change name and after a year stop all email on the previous domain (yes no comment). Then we need to contact support of a company, our email was never updated in their system. Hopefully we finally got human to talk to and with the original papers it was solved. Since then I always have some apprehension on systems were the only way is to send you an email on stored email.

comment The Pinterest Trap
It remember me some discussions on interface evolutions. First there was text (text menu), then we add icons to helps users (menu), then we remove text to only pictograms (toolbars), then as we add more nobody remember what icon means what and we add tooltips, then people start to ask to have tooltips always displayed side by side to image... It's a never ending problems we can't replace everything with text or picture there always be some drawbacks.

comment What is the correct currency formatting with zero amounts?
Local setting is for sure the best option. However you may (depending on your data) simplify the problem of units by moving the $ to the title of the column and not repeat it every line.

comment “Hello@Domain.com” Email Addresses
On that RFC ietf.org/rfc/rfc2142.txt there are Standard email for domain but nowadays I don't think many people (even the domain admin) know the existence of them.

comment When formatting numeric data with rounding, should the total line reflect the total of the rounded data, or the raw, unrounded data?
If your data were rounded percentages do you prefer that the sum of all part is above 100% or under 100% ? Think the answer depends how you present data to the user. Most of the time I prefer real values displayed with mask.
