The longest trip you can book on Well, 50 days, of course.

Thanks @MykolaPetiukh for finding this.

Portrait keyboard v. Landscape keyboard. Because, you know, according to Apple, two completely different people will be using those, so no need for them to be consistent.

Thanks @mateparty1 for the pictures

Hey, user, how do you feel if the useful translation tool:

- would put the text you type in a field a dozen pixels tall?

- would truncate the translation to a few words and require you to click an extra button to see it. And then wouldn't even scroll to the translation?

- show you suggestions from history by covering half of the remaining screen space, *and* at the same truncating said history to a few words a time?

Note though: all of these are *conscious decisions*. There were people who designed this interaction, signed off on it, implemented and shipped. Because it's significantly easier and faster (both for the user and the developer) to just show the full translation in the adjacent pane.

Where do you think is a good place for folder actions? Google thinks it’s right in the breadcrumbs, the component whose primary function always was and is navigation.

Thanks @NickKaramoff for finding this

World’s most confusing toggle found! All websites v. Not all websites?

Dribbble's sign up process, undoubtedly, was designed by someone who showcases their work on the site: superficially pretty, impossible to navigate and riddled with UX errors:

- The cursor doesn't change to pointer on tiny Sign In link (someone literally had to make sure it doesn't by overriding default behaviour)

- When you click the *Sign In* link, you're presented with a *Sign Up* form. You have to click the Sign In link again (and now it is a link with a proper cursor, go figure)

- If you click one of the social login buttons like "Sign in with Google", realise you made a mistake and want to go back, you're not taken back to the same page. You have to click the Back button three times to get back.

It still amazes me how many ways there are to screw up a simple sign in/sign up form. A functionality we've had in computers for more than half a century.
