comment Wake Up key on keyboard
Ah, OK. Thanks! You should add that to the answer, by the way; it might get lost as a comment.

comment Wake Up key on keyboard
OK. I'm not entirely sure what your screenshot is saying with S3 and S4, but I'll take your word for it! My computer's BIOS has "USB wake up" that you can enable or disable, but no "keyboard wake up".

comment Wake Up key on keyboard
What I'm most curious about is, have there been systems that could only be woken up with the WakeUp key? Or was the implementation always "all keys can wake the system up" from the beginning?

comment What do 3 *close* horizontal bars (not the hamburger menu) represent UX-wise, and what's the origin of the design?
In your last remark, if you mean the hamburger menu, no. That icon is meant to be a stylised representation of the menu. There are other questions about it, for instance here.

comment Should button positions ever rearrange depending on available functionality?
Can't you put all the "universal" buttons to the right and the article-specific buttons to the left of them? (In this example, you would have Fingers, Colour, Fabric, On Sale.) That way, the gap will always be to the left of the visible buttons.

comment Flexible natural language input field design
If the user interface is difficult to remember (or to guess) just add a quick explanation in plain text about the options ("type 2 spaces when done"). Also, you can give them more exit choices by combining options 1 and 2: user can exit by tapping elsewhere or by tapping the autocomplete field that is echoing their input. Or you can use Enter for exit.

comment Why do web browsers ask if they should be the default browser?
Accepting this one, although it's more conjecture than an official answer, but I'm starting to believe there is no official answer anyway.

comment Why do web browsers ask if they should be the default browser?
@JonW That's what I said in my question: yes, the OS has that abolity. Then why do the browsers need that ability too? I mean, when you start up a browser, it's not the operating system that asks.

comment Why do web browsers ask if they should be the default browser?
1) But Google Chrome wasn't even around when the Browser Wars started! and 2) Why doesn't gedit ask if it can be made the default text editor? Why doesn't MS Outlook ask if it should be the default Exchange client? It doesn't make sense!

comment Make user aware that he cannot enter arbitrary values into textbox?
@MooingDuck Calimo means the Windows error says "unacceptable character" while pointing at the perfectly valid number in the textbox (because the screen shot doesn't show the rejected character).

comment Make people understand they can click on a button in a flat design
Sure; many mobile apps use "Tap here to ..." if the button is not too obviously a button. As a user I would definitely prefer outlined (non-flat) buttons though.
