Yep, I think we have some villages with streets "A" and "B". Not kidding!

comment How Many Screenshots Are Too Many
@PhillipW: you can't take videos away with you on paper. Pretty hard to follow a video when sat at a greasy machine in a workshop where no computers (even laptops) dare travel... I personally also hate instructional videos because they are hard to page back and forth in.

Why re-invent browser history?

comment Sorting tables after multiple columns
Why? Because what you think is helpful, may not be helpful for me. People tend to use what we make in ways that we can't even begin to imagine.

Why? You tend to change your mind often then? ;-D

comment Sorting tables after multiple columns
Solution 1 is exactly what we used somewhere. Don't ever re-order columns though. It jolt people's spatial memory on where to look for info, plus it is down right obnoxious if you also provide the ability to re-order columns as the user sees fit.

comment Concept for adding reminders
+1 Though I would use such a "common" schedule to populate the dialog so users would only have to hit enter in most cases, but can make adjustments when desired.

comment Controls on moving controls?
@BennySkogberg: Yeah, didn't say it would be easy :-D We still haven't been successful with the commercial radio stations either :(

comment Controls on moving controls?
Yes controls on the steering wheel are really that bad, because even in neutral position, the controls end up where many people rest their hands and can activate the controls without intending to. I hate cars that have their horns in the position where your photos show the volume controls. Steering wheel should be for steering. If you want controls close to the steering wheel: make it a lever on the steering column. That's where my volume and station controls are by the way :-)

comment Controls on moving controls?
Nice answer! Big difference between a wheel and a joystick: the joystick always has more or less the same orientation towards its "holder". Maybe we should get joysticks for driving our cars. Could be fun :-)

Attack the root cause, not the symptom: advertisements should be broadcast at the same volume and nowadays they are on many of our radiostations...

comment Navigating between tabs in an android app
@KeithS: yeah, well, maybe :-D. I guess in that case I would opt for always swiping on the tabs to get to see more tabs, but never swiping in the normal view to achieve the same. Swiping in the normal view should be reserved for scrolling the same content, not switching views.

comment Navigating between tabs in an android app
+1 Even when there are more tabs than fit in the view port, I'd sooner use navigation arrows than trying to get a user to swipe tabs. As mentioned in my comment to A.Macdonald's answer: before this question it had never occurred to me to swipe tabs.

comment Design requirements for displaying Terms and Conditions / Privacy Policy
These may be nice examples, but just having to hit a "Next" button is often not considered to amount to "explicit agreement". That's why you see "Agree" buttons, though if only the text changes people can argue they still were in the next-next-next flow. Best option legal-wise is to have an "I agree" checkbox and only enable the next/agree button when the checkbox has been explicitely checked by the user.

comment What are the strengths and weaknesses of dynamic responsive typography?
The reason I move closer to the screen might be because the typeface currently is too small... Having it then automatically become even smaller would really p... me off.

comment What should a toggle switch do when using a multi-select?
Yes, option 5: just toggle them like a toggle action should. Active ones go to pause, paused ones go to active. It's clear and straight forward. If you really want to show a notification (not modal please) that this is what happens when items of different states have been selected.
