comment What is the best way to show my users that buttons in the same line have different functionality?
Then neither radio-buttons nor checkboxes are not the correct control for his use-case.

comment What is the best way to show my users that buttons in the same line have different functionality?
Checkboxes imply that one or both or neither can be checked. You can't have a car that's both 2-door and 4-door. If you want exactly one, you should be using a radio control.

comment How can we communicate the ability to use the same login credentials across multiple sites?
@SteveBennett: You think requiring the user to go to a login page and re-enter their credentials for every separate stackexchange site is a better user experience than being automatically logged in and having to click one button?

comment Why do speedometers (in the US, at least) go so high?
"the speedometer is also representative to the limits of the system" - Do you have a source for this? I think this claim is completely made up (and a quote from a Nissan exec in another answer contradicts it). My tiny Hyundai has a speedometer that goes up to 180 mph (290km/h), but it could never go that fast. When I floor it I can barely reach 80.

comment Why is the mouse cursor slightly tilted and not straight?
It has nothing to do with calculation time and everything to do programmers wanting to make their lives easier. I would have made the same decision (and in fact, I have - video games often implement their own cursor logic). +1

comment How can we communicate the ability to use the same login credentials across multiple sites?
@MarjanVenema: But, sharing the user's ID across sites on the backend (which is a good thing) is completely different from asking the user to share their credentials across multiple sites (a very bad thing, see my answer). OP is talking about the latter.

@uxfelix: There is no third-party here. SiteA is your OpenID auth-server.

"as does "StackExchange" for *.stackexchange.com" - Except that StackExchange does not share credentials across multiple sites, it uses OpenID.

comment Synonym for 'GUI' for non-technical people?
Most programs just have a checkbox for "advanced settings" in the settings menu, which defaults to off.

comment How to make a progress-speed bar more understandable?
@Virtlink: Well, the graph shows (MB/s) vs. MB. You're correct though that the derivative graph would have units 1/s, and would give, roughly, how (un)stable the transfer speed is at each point in the file. But, that's off-topic :)
