comment Studies or experience on using faded text to indicate more content?
Again, you are misunderstanding. The gradient does not cover all the text, only the bottom portion. Whether the fade is high or low on that final portion is not particularly relevant to the value as an indicator that there is more content available. The majority of the content is fully visible. Being aware of the fact that the gradient may be less visible to some users is important (so that you can design for the worst case), but that does not prevent it from serving its purpose regardless of the quality of a user's screen.

Gradients have no hardware dependancies, nor are they significantly harmed by sunlight or bad monitors. You are confusing a design issue with a UX issue. Typically you will display 4-10 lines with no overlay at all, then 2-4 lines with a fade from 100% to 0%. It is irrelevant whether that fade is exactly represented on the user's monitor; as long as the user sees a fade of some kind, the control has served its purpose of indicating further content.

comment Gathering end user feedback on a mobile device
@superduperfly Can you clarify the writing in your question to be more explicit? Specifically, what are your design constraints? What are your goals? Have you seen any other feedback form used in another app that is not good for your usage, and why? A better question will yield a better answer.

comment Home page with two types of profile signup
Amazon is a huge company, and not everyone can afford the creation of completely separate giant sites, but that doesn't change the fact that different market segments have different needs, and rarely should they have a single page to convince both to sign up.

comment Is it OK to nest clickable items?
@DanMichael It's because they don't go to the same place. Your answer implies that the 'revision' link and the target of the entire box are identical; as I understand it, they are not.

comment Suggestions for web form mockup
Why do you ask for Address and Mailing Address? In general, you should ask for one, and have a 'My mailing address is different' button that they would select before they had to fill it in separately.

comment How to enter separate amounts then give feedback if the total meets a given amount?
None of the answers deals with a text-only interface. They all are graphical interfaces (primarily mouse based, or with illustrations to exemplify the relative amounts). I do not think this question significantly overlaps.
