comment Why do people mount TVs so high on the wall in their homes?
Thank you for helping me to refine my question. :-) I meant to ask about homes, not restaurants/bars, and have edited the question. (Another reason to raise them at restaurants would be to reduce the chance that unruly or clumsy patrons will damage them.)

Re #2: I wonder how many people know how to turn their TVs on/off without the remote. :-)

I hadn't been thinking of bedrooms, but that's a good point.

comment visualising session data
What do you want to know from your data? What pages or origin countries are most popular? What individual users do? What users do in the aggregate (computed values, like average time spent on the site)?

Airplane cockpit, nuke-plant controls, X-ray machine... safety + impact on others?

comment Why is a manual transmission so complicated?
+1 for the last paragraph. I never look at my gearstick; feel and sound tell me everything I need to know.

comment Giving users ability to change order of information on their profiles
Interesting question about consistency versus personalization. I've edited slightly to remove the polling aspect, which would be off-topic.

Will your phone number be toll-free from all locations where the web page can be seen?

comment Is there a usability reason for centering a website's content area on a page?
@PhilipSeyfi, I agree that it shouldn't stretch text to 30". But it shouldn't also crop the site if you only gave it 800px width. Is it possible to get both of these correct? (Note we are talking window size, not screen resolution.) Meanwhile, my question remains: when someone goes full-screen with a browser on a 30" monitor, what is he trying to accomplish?

comment Do columns of text hurt readability on websites?
Having to scroll back up to start the second column is pretty bad usability. Multi-column works on paper because you can see the whole page. (And the fonts may tend to be smaller, lowering the practical limit on line width.)

comment Is there a usability reason for centering a website's content area on a page?
@PhilipSeyfi, a responsive design would try to use all that space, no? What I'm really trying to understand is the use case of a 30"-wide browser window. What do you do with all that space that it's worth going full-screen?
