comment How to guide minors to create strong passwords
Then again, if it's not a login but a data decryption attempt, then there's no way to block attempts if custom software is used.

comment How to guide minors to create strong passwords
I typically only use passphrases (which are a godsend) on accounts with 2-factor authentication. Even then, if the system has a good way of handling password guesses (i.e. not allowing 1000 guesses/sec forever), then it'll thwart any real attempt. But you can't rely on the server rejecting any login attempts after the 10th one for example.

comment What is the reasoning behind grayscale icons?
The part that makes me furious (given Microsoft's latest announcement blogs.msdn.com/b/visualstudio/archive/2012/02/23/…) is that this only works for certain types of user interfaces, particularly those that don't have a hundred buttons, tree views and panels all over the interface. When will UI designers start to realise this is just a very specific design metaphor and not some cool fad? Coloured icons work when there are many icons to be seen.

comment Greater Than > or Plus +
8+ is more intuitive to me at a glance. >7 would be used in a mathematical context, but in a UI, I would use 8+ myself.

If you want to get technical, they each have different meanings anyway. >8 = greater than 8 8+ = greater than or equal to 8

comment Symbol for “Swipe Left”
Apple's is a good way to approach it as it provides both a virtual object to manipulate and instructs the user on the action to take at the same time.

comment Examples of placebos in UI design?
I've never had a close button do anything, but the open button typically works.

Oh yes! I forgot about iPod touches and iPads. My mistake.

comment Show camera feature on iPhone when there is no camera?
One question, when has there ever not been a camera on the iPhone?
