Thoughts on checkbox controls in iOS7 Apps

As there is no checkbox control in iOS, it always become a bit of an issue on how to mimic that functionality in an app or in a mobile site. The Apple HIG is strangely silent on the issue, other than offering up a segmented control that will only accept a single choice. That's fine for a radio group, but doesn't work for something where you want someone to check a box before continuing, like accepting terms and conditions.

How do you hire a UX researcher?

Anyone have advice on hiring a user researcher? We have UX designers but having someone focused on research would really round out our team. Having a design background it is easier for me to interview graphic/interaction designers but interviewing researchers has felt awkward. 

I am wondering:

1. How important is the PHD?

2. Are there strong differences in personality types Research vs. Design?

Forms design - I'm researching and need help

Where are we on forms design today?

How far have we come on designing effective, intuitive, intelligent web forms? I'm researching forms design, both best practice and the more innovative ones. But I'm having a hard time finding really good examples.

HiOscar the insurance company is one example with some innovative qualities and certainly worth a study. But I'm searching for more advanced forms with higher complexity.
