comment Can higher speeds harm the user experience?
@KeithS: Precisely, so I'm curious to hear the side of those who down-voted. Could it be they don't like Pacman or (shudder) Superman?!!?? No No, of course not, that's crazy-talk! There's got to be some other reasonable explanation that I'm missing... ;)

comment Why do Microwave oven UIs fail?
@BryanOakley: That's true, although I'm not sure about it taking up the same amount of space since you'd still need the ability to select which cooking mode you are using. Maybe instead of a single "Start" button you could put your "Cook By" "Time"/"Desired Temp" buttons there.

@derobert: Did the microwave shut off when it got to the temperature you wanted to cook your food to? If so: SWEET, I want it!

Here's a challenge from Ben Brocka's linked article: Implement the "Pormpuraawan Progress Bar", where progress goes from East to West :)

comment Why put the controls in the bottom (or the top) of a music player UI?
@yusf: I don't have an Android device, but I did search for "Android music player" on Google images, and through at least the first 50 images, every result that had play/ff/rew buttons had them below the viewing area, so I apologize but I'm not sure what you are referencing.

comment Is this rotating cube interface user-friendly?
@Peter: Does this work on mobile devices? Real-estate is so valuable there and this saves so much space, I can just think of one word for your design: money. While we are on that note, you could save even more space and show any number of sides if you swapped them out randomly when the sides are hidden!
