comment What is the correct meaning of “slider”?
I don't think there's a governing body which regulates nomenclature of UX elements, so we can't stop people from calling image carousels "sliders", but I wish there was one. ;)

revised The logic behind having an OK button and Apply button
Close Widget/cancel stuff is misleading. Add notes on how OS X deals with it.

There are already javascript libraries with swipe control on a slider, swipejs for instance.

comment What should I call content that drops down, without call it a dropdown?
I agree with @BenBrocka. It looks quite like standard accordion behaviour to me, even if it doesn't have the standard boxy accordion styling, it's still an accordion. In fact, perhaps it should be styled like a standard accordion for clarity. How do things drop? On hover? When you click the line? How does the user know the line is clickable?

comment What should I call content that drops down, without call it a dropdown?
@DA01 Right! I interpreted the diagram to be pointing at the selection drop down (called drop down in black) and the green accordion pane (calling it a drop down in green) and thus the reason for the question to disambiguate. ;)

@DA01 Right. I presumed from the screenshot that this was the desired functionality.

comment Would intentionally slowing down UI help to increase sales on shopping sites?
I think the premise in your first paragraph is flawed. I assure you, if Apple could ensure that all page loads in their store were instant, they would. Furthermore, I don't find the experience of browsing the iTunes store particularly slow at all, but since it loads everything over the network (for obvious reasons) I could see how it might seem slow for some people.

comment Pop-under: Really that bad?
That technique linked by @jberger is used on the New York Times site all the time. Far more preferable to a pop-under.

comment Toggling two-way relationships between objects
I think Dmitry has a good point here. I don't understand what Object A relates to Object B means because of the generic way you've described it. It sounds like a database relation, but without context it's hard to come up with an intuitive solution.

comment Why don't mobile apps have a 'close' button?
FYI - in iOS there is a close button. Double-clicking the home button brings up a quick launch strip at the bottom of the screen. If you touch and hold an app in the strip, they will "jiggle" and a close button will appear on the corner of each app icon. The strip can be scrolled left-right to view all recently used apps. That said, it's very rare that this is necessary. The OS does and should handle memory/CPU management automatically.
