comment What Comes After PDFs?
I'm not sure this is question is specific enough to be useful here, but I'll let a moderator weight in on that. That said, I'd pose you this question: how will their day-to-day lives be improved by converting to HTML? Can you walk through some common use cases and detail the benefits? For example, it could be more effective for sales people to share a product sheet that customers can see on their smartphone right then-and-there, before they go back to their desktop computer.

comment Why do many/most (Android) phones have the power button opposite the volume buttons?
Anecdotally, many iPhone users don't even know about that upper on/off button. They just use the home button and never turn the screen off. I'd also agree this isn't a great question for this venue but I totally relate to it - I also have an N5 and it's really hard not to accidentally hit the buttons opposite the one you intended. You need an opposite surface to squeeze your hand against, and they put buttons there!

comment What's the least confusing UI for offering to either enter a URL or upload a file?
@Erics indeed, which may be a case for making the file upload a second step in the process, as imgur does.

(I wouldn't recommend this as a pattern without some caveats.)

I find this control to be confusing - I screw it up frequently. The underlying pattern makes sense, but the graphic implementation is sooo bad. The "center-everything" layout is ragged in every way, it's not clear that "from my computer" isn't an action itself, and there is mix of three styles of button-looking elements that each do different things. For selecting the image input type tabs, iOS-style toggles, radio buttons, or vertical stacking would be better than a button bar.

I totally agree re: SO's pattern being confusing. I'm thrown for a loop quite often by the sequence of controls to press.

guiders.js is nifty!
