I continue to be astonished. It happened again. I found another computer user who didn’t know why some on-line surveys’ questions have “round buttons,” and others, “square buttons” — the difference between radio buttons and checkboxes. So I’m curious… do you readers out there understand the difference? This is something I’ve taken painstaking steps to explain in The Ultimate PC Primer — a topic that many times I thought about omitting because I wondered if it was just a little too basic for even a book on basic computer concepts. But yet again, I find there are some truly intelligent people in the workforce who just don’t understand checkboxes and radio buttons.
So I’m going to take a poll, below. Feel free to forward to others. I’m genuinely interested in how many people clearly understand these interface concepts. Thanks for your participation and comments, as always.
