comment New to UX and considering it as a career. Help!
You need to first think of why you want to get into UX as a field. Too many people get into it because they think it looks cool and then find out they dont enjoy it so much

comment How long does it take a user to find and click an object in a list?
Thats interesting and I would love to read those articles if they are online. That said, you do realize that a perfect reaction time would depend on multiple factors such as the attention span of the user and the relative position of the users mouse with regards to the correct action and so on.

comment How to show user that page objects automatically update
I am not sure how much of a system load it is but if you could dynamically update the time the last update came in, that would help inform the user that the last update time is being pushed through as well and there is tracking for new data

comment Should a web service assign users an auto generated email address or let them pick their own?
That to me seems even more work, now I need to copy the random email,go to my inbox and add myself as a contact and remember what I stored it as ? It would be much more simpler to just allow me to create an email id like hulkwillcrush@domain.com then trying to remember SKnhEyS0.0GahxwXAMrRJyG9j.MxVWO64vTfCuprrt@domain.com.

comment How to show remaining time?
