comment Automated way to verify user identity
Possibly you could explain what the problem is with users 'faking it' in the first place ?

comment Why don't all washing machines beep when finished?
In the Uk I've seen quite a lot in suburban houses in the garage particularly the integral garages in 70s and 80s housing which had small kitchens (no-one actually puts cars in them !)

In the UK. Washing machines in the UK sometimes end up in utility rooms (or sometimes garages!) as they don't need to be in the kitchen area. (Traditionally the UK has favoured small terraced houses rather than flats in apartment blocks).

Possibly a more interesting question is 'how do you design a dishwasher to indicate that its full of dirty not clean dishes...?' ( to avoid the 'Oh I forgot to run the dishwasher', situation )

comment Why don't all washing machines beep when finished?
It might be worth making this question a bit more generic: ie 'what's the best way to alert that a washing machine has finished its cycle' ? My girlfriend's washing machine does beep and it drives me nuts as I want to be able to pause the beeping when I'm in her house - and then turn it back on to alert her later for when she comes back in as she's fussy about hanging stuff out :-)

comment Why is the groundfloor G on some lifts, and 1 on others?
I've a feeling France also does 'ground floor' as well. It may vary in other European countries.

There are also situations where as a driver you need to roll the window right down and look behind you if you are reversing. Obviously you only need stick your head out of the drivers window to do this

comment Flight Passenger Experience: 1 window per seat row
I suspect that if you asked airline passengers for a list of 'things which would enhance their user experience', there would be other items of higher priority than window positioning.

Cool. Can you interview some of your users ?

comment What's the difference between a UX portfolio and a Web Design portfolio?
So if the people with the website design background have read some UX books; been to some UX events; and adopted some UX practices... then they've been 'UXed' - and there's no need to employ any dedicated UX people at all ?

"and needs a lift in experience and aesthetics to say the least". Says whom ? Have you actually asked your users ?

comment What's the difference between a UX portfolio and a Web Design portfolio?
There's a huge difference between a traditional website designer and a UX Designer: Website designers traditionally didn't know much about their users and certainly didn't have the expertise to user test what they designed effectively. That's why a UX input came to be important on projects.
