comment Why don't commercial products use Logarithmic Volume Controls?
Good question. And obviously the measure for sound (decibel) actually works this way.

comment How can I submit a user research survey to a large crowd without spamming?
I think the question here is whether its 'pushed at people' (such as by email or text) or is an optional 'pull' thing which they can choose to go to via a link.

The 'emotional response' suggestion is interesting: I wonder how good computers are at understanding facial expressions ?

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.

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 What is the gender implied by this infographic person
Interesting question. I would have thought the use of the standard female graphic design WOULD imply a gender...

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.
