comment Do you really feel the way windows and mac display the files and folders are disorganized and confusing?
I think this is actually a very worthwhile question as so much of using a computer is about storing and finding data in files. Blyk clearly isn't a native English speaker so I'll try to edit the question, if Blyk doesn't update it.

comment Should passwords expire?
I recall some corporate system I worked expired passwords after a period of use. I recall finding it a right pain. I used to cycle through 3 password variations to fool the system...

comment Forcing Users To think up More Complex Passwords / Ease of Remembering Them
A footnote to this: There's clearly an increasing fashion for sites to go demanding a password with a capital letter and a number in it, so I've been forced to come up with a new 'standard' password which meets these criteria for use on sites which don't matter very much...

comment Software project with British documentation for US market
I think its mainly down to the relative sizes of the two countries populations and the exportation of US products such as the US film and TV industry. The British will have far more exposure to American English than the Americans get to British English, so the Americans are less used to British usage.

comment How can employees be subtly reminded that when they talk loud in the cubicle farm corridor they disturb people in the cubicles?
I think this is a UX question because its about 'affordances' - a door handle invites pushing; and a 'something' invites people to talk quietly.

It would be interesting to see how this works over time: due to 'habituation' people stop noticing a new stimulus in their environment pretty quickly.

That would also be more visually interesting that white painted walls.

comment Why do idle elevators close the doors?
There are elevators which don't have doors at all... en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paternoster So the question could be rephrased about the need for having user operated doors in the first place rather than an automatic guard or fitting the inside of the elevator shelf at the door side with a seemless, low friction material.
