comment Pagination: Let the user choose how many items are shown per page?
which are in your opinion the drawbacks on tabular data? I've not found any of them for now. it is much more usable imho. If I just want to "jump" back in time (suppose the data are sorted by time) I just scroll up/down and it is much faster than going through all the pages.

I know, I know... and that was my idea some years ago, but now looking at the masses I suspect that the general feeling is different. If 5 years ago I'd told you: "do you want a smartphone that has no copy/paste, no multitasking, no keyboard, no filemanager, but it has a wonderful design and menus?" how would you replied? I suspect that the emotional part of our brain plays a bigger role than the rational part when making judgement of an application.

In the first days of the iPhone, without copy/paste it was a nightmare for me to quote something from the web on facebook or into emails, but I liked my iPhone so much that I ended up adapting myself to the lack of copy/paste...

ok, I've exaggerated my words with "nightmare". you are right: the users forgive glitches if design is great. imho event if those glitches are not so small. users will think that they will be fixed in the future and continue to use the app, they will adapt, they will pay usability for emotional return.
