comment Must the buttons of a touch interface be round because of the shape of a finger?
also, the problem with a circular button, is that there is less room for an explicit label, which lets the user know exactly the action they are taking.

comment What is the advantage of drop down list appearing in front of control instead of below it?
Good example... The only thing i would add is that for top aligned labels, you lose context with the overlay. Not a huge deal, but for long lists with unfamiliar items to choose from, users may lose context, as they cannot view the label.

comment Best position and labels for buttons on an order creation page
Is it important to short circuit a process such as loading a package? It appears that once a package is loaded, like the rows above, you can delete it. If loading a package is a reversible action, and is non-destructive to the order, why not let the user just load it, then decide if they want to cancel. Otherwise you have two interactions: delete a detail once it's been loaded, or abort a process. Either one gets you the same end result, at least it appears that way. If you can provide more context, that would be useful.

comment Checkboxes with several options
Excellent solution. One other option to add to this could be: Once you've checked off an option, the whole box (or module) changes visually in a subtle way, maybe a tone change, so users can see what activities they've clearly selected.

comment numbers on a credit card expiry date year form
It's not only easier to type, but I've found by looking at a bunch of credit card images, they appear use the YY format. This way users that are reading off a card (especially older users, who may not be keyboard savvy, but are frightened of input errors) don't have to alter the format they see in front of them. It's 1:1

comment Do links need to be blue in business application?
I would maybe include a subtle hover state, but wouldn't clutter the UI with a blue color or persistent underline. Thanks for the clarification...

comment Multiselect value into a table
One thing that is visually difficult to parse is that you have a list-builder device, leading to a table builder, which after Save, looks like it ends in a static table. If you can simplify the list builder, I'm assuming the Save command will populate a table row at the top of the table, otherwise in a potentially long table, the user will have no clear indication of success. you could have as well a simple visual device, such as how comments work here; a flashing yellow fade on the newly created asset. Basecamp by 37 signals does this as well.

comment UI pattern for organizing/categorization where items can become a category?
If you use any GTD ([Getting Things Done][1]) apps, you'll see this at work in [Omnifocus][2] desktop. These are essentially list containers, like many organization apps. You can simply drag the task to the sidebar, and it becomes a project (similar to a category). Alexey is spot on with the wireframe above.
