comment Single click versus double to cancel something
If you are going to use shortcuts for things, avoid using actions that standard for something else. Double click means Open in many cases, so if you feel a shortcut is needed - use something else. From the top of my head - Ctrl+shift for example. When Ctrl+shift is pressed, the item can show a button that says "Delete". Maybe totally improper in your case, but that's the way you should approach the problem :)

comment What are the benefits of using a black cursor with white outline, over white with black?
I find the Mac cursor to be more annoying than the Windows version. The white outline is often invisible (because most applications, websites etc. have a white background), which means that the white outline (e.g. the cursors active point) can't be seen...

comment How can a retractable pen design be enhanced to discourage users from clicking the pen frequently?
If you succeed it will be a great invention - and an invention I'll never use. I simply pick pens that I like to hold, write AND fiddle with :)

comment What visual metaphor is this checkbox trying to achieve?
I can't help to wonder what's wrong with a check box - everyone knows what they do and there's really no space for doubt on how to control them. If it ain't broken - don't fix it.

comment How can I prevent the user from deselecting all the checkboxes?
Does the page where these controls are have an ok button or similar? Or is it a properties kind of page where each checkbox - as soon as clicked - has its state saved?

comment Is there any research on downsides of Google's undo design?
@EvilClosetMonkey - your answer implies that the Google way is the only sensible way undo could be implemented, all others are more or less stupid. It's a bold statement...

37 kb. If that's too large, an upgrade of internet provider might be something to consider :)
