comment Close button place depending on OS
"May have" or "will have"? See the linked question/answer below on why I ask. If it "will have" actions, you may not want to have an 'x' at all. ux.stackexchange.com/questions/1389/closing-modal-dialogs

comment Close button place depending on OS
Does the modal require an action, or is it just informative? Generally, you shouldn't move the 'x' - my experience with your "web app" should be consistent no matter how I visit it.

comment How to give feedback about keypresses in password fields
However, with password fields masked by dots/asterisks, there is no visual feedback if you pressed a key or pressed it down too long(sticky keyboards[sic]) as there is no visual change in the text-box. - of course there is a visual change: you get another dot/asterisks, or a lot of them if you key sticks.

comment When can we stop assuming that a 2 digit year starts with 19
You are correct that just adding a red border (for example) would not be enough. Errors need words. If you are wanting to make sure the user enters a 4-digit year you will need an error that displays text of some sort. Well formatted errors are an important part of UX and words are an important part of well formatted errors.

I'm not sure what you mean by "not using text". '2014' is easily validated as a number with Javascript. Perhaps you can post an example of your current solution? Also - you should always do server side validation, even if you do client side validation (sometimes the client doesn't validate, for any number of reasons).

Simple solution: force a 4-digit year.

comment How to differentiate between “software” and “application” in the context of a company's products and services?
Could the downvoter explain what is wrong with this question, other than it might better belong on a different SE site? The question seems well thought out and organized. If you feel it should be moved then flag it; but a downvote only because it may be better suited elsewhere is not a good downvote.

comment Why don’t we remove door handles and let doors open both ways (inwards, outwards)?
Point 1 is violated all the time, and a source of much UX discussion over "affordance". Point 3 (for public spaces) may be true long ago, but is not true today for the same reason as Point 2 - so people can get out more easily in case of emergency. Point 3 is generally correct when speaking of personal spaces (e.g., homes).
