I'm living and working as Product Developer Innovations near Cologne/Germany.

My job is to invent new business models and software products for a big company. I have a background as Media Designer and Usability Engineer, so I wear UX-glasses launching new products.

comment Why did scrolling vertically became a pattern?
To add history before C64: before there were displays computers used to be read, printed and programmed by punchtapes. And these are vertically too.

Sure, you can grade your mockups yourself or the team, but that doesn't mean you match the expectations a common user might have. It's simply an internal perspective, nothing more. But even internal views might be worthwhile - think business objectives.

Furthermore you can analyse how mature the business or app is. Early Adopters will ask for or miss features. Early Majority will just moan about some bugs and say that this wasn't expected from a senior company.

comment Is my suspicion correct, that QR codes will be a short-lived standard with little effect?
And radio transmitted information like NFC or RFID get in trouble if iron or liquids are in space. And those techs doesn't work in a bulk: did you wonder why RFID isn't plugged in a supermarket setting? Imagine how cool a self-checkout would be just wlaking out of the door and all RFIDs would transmit their ids/prices. Does't work! They would send all their Ids at once and the reciever won't understand a single Id!

comment How to avoid attracting graphic designers in a UX job posting?
+1 I experienced it myself: At a job interview the HR asked me how they better could frame the position using other terms than "designer". I think they got webdesigner applications a lot. Designer is the killer phrase ;)

comment How to evaluate mockups?
@alexey kolchenko Me too. For me it is important to let go some days to reset my thoughts before I take an analytical view upon my work. Good for a self-check but should't replace a more objective outsider view.

@alexey kolchenko Mmmh one shouldn't do expert evaluation on your own design. I bet you won't find any critical issues ;)

comment Make object look draggable
unnecessarily, don't need, no need, not an option: it is just no no no. And for me it looks more like a web app, which have different modes of selection ;) Please don't take it personal, I just want to give a feedback why I think the answer isn't so helpful.

comment Make object look draggable
-1 because your answer is destructive in a way to moan what not to do, instead of showing how to do it. Furthermore the question is how to increase awareness not how to select. There is no hint for assuming it is a desktop app - mac gui. And it's actually well-known that dragNdrop lacks of affordance, which cries for extra visual clues. Just search here at SE for dragndrop.
