Thank you for this! This made me think about some of the pop-ups that annoy me, most specifically, the pop-up on the upper right corner of my Mac Laptop that notifies me of a software update and iMessages. It’s placement is bothersome, because I tend to leave it open until I’m able to get to it, but it being near some buttons I use on whatever program I’m on could be a bit annoying.
Now as I design products, what I read here would always be on my mind. :)
