comment How usable are outlined buttons?
+1 I found the button over the graphics where the button didn't have any opacity at all very ill-advised. If it hadn't been for the fact that I knew I was looking at a component (/control) vendor's website I wouldn't have guessed the outline was a button, and assumed it was just some decoration.

comment Is adding a sleep to my code to be able to show a loading icon effective for informing the user
I wouldn't do it, for the same reasons as I wouldn't add an artificial load delay: ux.stackexchange.com/questions/41682/…

comment Loading spinner after iphone switched off
Because it isn't a loading spinner, just a "busy" spinner?

The text in the bottom half of the ellipse at the top of the graphic seems pretty concise...

comment 2x Datepicker vs 1x Datepicker + Range select
+1 I actually like this, but I agree with Tommie that the fiddle lacks affordance for two clicks. It would need some instructional text to make it work for "novice" users (novice meaning never having encountered this implementation before).

comment How to prevent users using your app while driving?
You shouldn't use an app while walking either. People bump into things walking just as well :-)

comment How do I deal with users that I know are pirating my software?
+1 I am not in favor of offering discounts, not up front anyway (detracts value from the product), but this seems like one scenario where offering a discount can turn a bad situation into a better one.

comment Are Drop-Down Menus Outdated and Poor Practice?
@SNag: Drop-downs open on hover, pull-downs open on click. Otherwise they are the same.

revised Is there an analysis tool for Interaction Design?
Things that can be counted as individual items use "number" (the number of beads), things that cannot be counted use "amount" (the amount of fuel)

comment A user's input doesn't match what he think it is
Ah yes. Zoom out on drop if the original pin is no longer visible would be nice to draw attention to it.

comment In a map routing application, what colors should the start and end point have?
+1 Google Maps also uses green and red for start and finish when giving you directions to get from A to B. Yes, uses those letters as well :-)

comment A user's input doesn't match what he think it is
What would be your approach to show the user that he has moved the pin a long way from the original?

comment Are Drop-Down Menus Outdated and Poor Practice?
Drop down or pull down? Hate drop downs (they always get in the way without provocation). Pull downs are fine.

+1 this is what my comment to @Franchesca was about.

comment Showing the full path to a folder when changing its name
+1, but ellipsis should really be in the middle as the first and last parts of the path are probably most significant. At the front at least one level should be visible and at the end preferably at least two...

comment Do users log-out?
@Jayfang: Yup, there are always subgroups where the percentages differ hugely from the general "norm".

comment Best way to construct a daily repeating set of steps?
+1. I like the idea of watching and learning from the user very much. Much more friendly than making the user teach you explicitly!

comment If a customer uses Guest Checkout, then returns and Registers, should you associate their previous orders with their account?
Retaining the data is not what I find troublesome. I would expect an e-commerce site to retain the details of their orders, including the e-mailaddress I provided them to get in touch with me. What would trouble me is recognition/use without being prompted by a specific action by me. Recognizing my e-mailaddress when I enter it to register on the site would be sort of fine. Doing the same when I enter it for a new "anonymous" order would get my running muscles warmed up. Asking for permission to check IMHO is the best.
