comment The meaning of 'between'
Always remember the mantra Don't Make Me Think. If there is any ambiguity in there you'll negatively impact the userbase. To get around this issue I always set my breakpoints at 1-19, 20-29, 30-39 etc. That keeps it clearer that you can't be in two classes. However, this doesn't really work if you're going for decimals and would mean you can't use 25k as an abbreviation as you'd need to have the full number there. However I'd take greater clarity over cluttered screen real-estate every time.

comment Is there research that shows that users don't like typing on virtual keyboards?
If you're going to post homework questions then it is requested that you: a)Make a good faith attempt to solve the problem yourself first, b)Ask about specific problems with your existing implementation. c)Admit that the question is homework. A discussion about this is posted at MetaStackOverflow about How to ask and answer homework questios. Currently you haven't made attempts to answer your question, you've only pasted it straight here. Can you edit it to be more appropriate or it risks being closed.

comment UI to let user pick some movies (3 - 6) from all movies released till now (>1 M)
Is there a database of movies you're hooking into? Unless you're using something like IMDB that covers every movie ever made the chances are you'll miss out films people want to pick so probably just text entry on its own would be better and then rank those text strings instead. That way I could pick 'Mulva: Zombie Ass Kicker' as my favourite ever film as the chances are its not in your list of films to pick. (I wouldn't pick that film though, it's utterly awful).

comment How to present content behind a paywall to unregistered users
I think a lot of this will be down to a business decision rather than a user experience question. As a user you'd want as much content for free as you can possibly get, any less and it becomes annoying very quickly. How much content is your company prepared to 'give away'? What is their reason for having a paywall in the first place?

Removed technolofy reference. UX is technology agnostic so stating the technology is not necessary.

comment Why are election results presented by a geographic map instead of a cartogram map?
This is an interesting combination between geographic and informational, however it tends to lose it's impact for the smaller states where you get virtually no indication of the data because it takes up such a small amount of pixels.

@ruakh interesting. (TIL!) However that begs the question: Why did they ever use Red in the first place if they were aware of the negative connotations?
