comment How should a “mains failure” indicator be designed on a UPS?
@DeerHunter: LOL. My local telephone operator is removing copper last mile wires and replacing it by a fiber. Yes, a dedicated fiber enters every apartment. Now the plain boring phone won't work with that fiber, it needs something like a router which in turn requires mains power and this means that either I'm a professional and use a UPS or I have no phone in case of power outage.

comment Creating an emotional bond with the user on a business site
@silvinci: Sure, but it also depends on who your customers are. This ISV viva64.com/en uses a vomiting unicorn on its logo and gets away with this because its customers are hardcore software developers. Not really sure this would work for an investment bank. Meanwhile both are real and quite serious businesses.

comment When there's inactivity…should we prompt the user for action?
+1 Yeap. I'll just add that to me the major difference between a Bosch washing machine UX and an LG microwave UX is that in Bosch washer that nagging sound can be turned off but it can't in an LG microwave. This is one of the reasons why I got myself a purely mechanical control microwave - single "ding" at the end of heating and then silent. I'm going to so much details just because it really makes a difference.
