I'm an entrepreneurial software engineer, advisor and consultant. I work with companies to help turn ideas into successful products and services, and I have a proven track record of leading distributed development teams.

I've built web and mobile applications that touch millions of consumers and tens of thousands of government employees in the US and abroad every day, ranging from 3D mapping and tracking platforms, to critical government systems that monitor radiation levels, to a revolutionary project that has made solar energy more affordable and accessible.

My work has helped obtain over $5 million in angel investments, $250 million in venture capital and private funding, and numerous US government contracts and grant awards amounting to at least $2.5 million. And I'm just getting warmed up.

I agree that segmented controls can be nice for mobile apps, but that isn't the context we're working with. I'm not sure there's enough precedent for it on the desktop, and I don't want to argue something that might be confusing for users. Any examples of this in use outside the mobile environment?

The rationale was that he wanted to change things up. There wasn't any real thought about it. I agree that radio buttons can be tough to associate with the correct label for the user, resulting in the wrong selection sometimes. Space is also a concern of mine. The way I see it (and the fact that the drop-down is very clear in its function), there's no reason to switch to a potentially less-clear concept.

Our users are most certainly "one type of user". Very rarely are, say, Utility users going to want to do stuff from a Residential point of view. I agree that set-it-and-forget-it is the best bet here.
