comment How many 'confirmation emails' are too many emails?
Thinking about this I would be useful if the 'unsubscribe' at the bottom of each email led directly to some kind of control panel which controlled all email preferences - next time I buy somethign from Amazon I'll see if this is actually implemented

comment This is the “about” information of a Mac app from a top company in the world
The problem with trying to do humour - is that it requires careful localisation. Better to avoid it for software which could be used anywhere in the world.

comment Does a developer need a book resource for UX design or just get information from articles, websites?
'Common' sense is only common sense - AFTER you've understood it. This is called HIndsight Bias - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hindsight_bias

comment How does signing up / logging in with social media accounts alter user behaviour?
Indeed. It depends how much you 'trust' the social network with your data.

I think there's a major trust issue as to whether you trust one site to have access to data on another site.

Disagree entirely. It has a big affect on user behaviour.

comment Is there a human advantage to painting heavy equipment (aka “baggers”) bright yellow?
Putting 'warrning signs' into google shows that there is a marked existing pattern for the use primarily of yellow and black (and to a lesser extent red) in warning signage. google.co.uk/…

Plus of course the ubiquous yellow hi visibility jacket. And in nature wasps and bees use the same warning colour scheme as the digger.

comment What's the actual likeability of “voice control”?
Good question. I personally loath the attempts with call centre software to attempt to understand speach and would much rather just listen to some options and press the right number.

I think that rather fails to answer the 'how would you actually find out about this particular issue' question.

comment recommendations for best practices in testing upright and angled directory experiences on large-scale touch-screen display?
The basic testing method would be the same except with physical peramiters thrown in: ie how high up the wall should the thing be mounted so that its at the optimum height for your desired users ( ie do you want it thumped by small kids ?)

comment What objective qualities make a user interface intuitive?
I think the average American (and it was American's who worked in offices they were selling to) was familiar with these things back in 1981.....en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xerox_Star

comment What objective qualities make a user interface intuitive?
Quick Answer: Make it look like something the user is already familiar with: so with the original mac interface it was files; folders; and a trash can.
