I love Kikkerland Design’s shopping cart option that tells the system not to show the shopping cart every time I add something to it. I didn’t notice it the first time I arrived there, but I did think to myself that it was a strange default. The second time I added something and was taken to the cart I was all ready to be annoyed, so that checkbox was perfect.
When registering on MyPanera if you elect to use your email as your username, the username field won’t let you enter anything.
How am I supposed to know what page the New England Patriots schedule is on? Page 5 is the Kansas City Chiefs, so I’m going to guess…oh I have no idea.
It’s obvious I don’t cook often enough, because recipe sites have really improved since I last looked up a recipe. Check out this handy calculator on All Recipes that changes the amount of all ingredients based on the number of servings you want to make.
This totally beats scribbling in a cookbook! And I swore I’d always want paper books, especially cookbooks….
Thank you, Specialty’s, for letting me skip logging in for now by simply entering my zipcode to start browsing.
Every time I log into my SoCal Edison account to pay my bill I have to pause to make sure I’m hitting the right button:
Back button on the right?
And the cancel button too? It just seems wrong.
I think these Show Fares In $ vs. Points radio buttons and the way they populate the map are cool.
I like Boagworld. They give you a little heads up on how much time you’ll likely need to read an article.
After I purchased tickets on Live Nation I wanted to email them to someone.
It might be just me, but I sat there and looked at that form and wondered if I was supposed to put a name or an email in that first field. Below it says “Your Name” and “Your Email.” Why not indicate whether the fields above are for names or emails?
The New York Times Best Sellers Lists past and present are available online. Today I was trying to find the first list from 2011. I started clicking through the navigation at the top of the page but it was taking too long.
What I was looking for was something like this:
And this is where I found it.
I wonder if other users would like to see it higher up on the page…
The BBC’s World At Seven Billion tool is great. Before you fill out the form, the Go and Next buttons are disabled.
After you fill in your birth date the Go button is enabled.
And after you click Go, the Next button is enabled.
Surely the navigation for this new and really delicious-looking restaurant Seed Bistro could be better? It’s on the right, the font is small, and the order of items seems totally arbitrary. Where is the menu? Where is a map of the location? The user really has to focus to find both. Or at least I did.
I’m spending a lot of time looking at hotel rates as part of planning a wedding, and this form from Sunset Tower Hotel is a real doozy.
So how much is the room on the date I’ve chosen? And why do I have to enter my credit card info on this same screen without formally choosing a room and clicking Next? And what’s up with the multiple scroll bars? Weird.
I love you, Wilco, but I’m going to click on that giant Submit button below the new password fields before I click the little one in the separate content area to right. That is my only criticism of you.
I visited the Big Bear Solar Observatory site to see what it looks like and get some information on it. Seems easy enough, but look at the homepage:
As far as I can tell the only way to can a bigger picture than the one in the banner is to click Projects > Earthshine. Weird and disappointing.
