comment Would intentionally slowing down UI help to increase sales on shopping sites?
Guess I'll need to conduct a study on how people feel when they see the spinning circle.

In response to ethics -- sales IS manipulation, but it is not always bad. Even in workplace, how and when you sell an idea to your team requires careful thoughts on the choice of words and timing.

comment Would intentionally slowing down UI help to increase sales on shopping sites?
@NathanLong Imagine the owner of a camera shop says to you "I'll go and fetch the model you want from downstairs, meanwhile why don't you look at these accessories." -- Most people would at least take a glance at the accessories. What I'm trying to find out is whether "waiting" is always bad, and if you know what the customers are going through on their mind while waiting, you could potentially use it to your advantage.

comment How do you use an icon to represent 'click once' (not twice)
I agree that having a button would make users click once. But in this case it's not a button or a specific target, it's an e-book where you can click on anywhere on the page to zoom in.

issuu actually has hand cursor, but empirical results show that users double-click anyway. I wrote to Issuu.com asking them to handle the double-click as one click. Since in the real world nobody would actually want to zoom in and out in quick succession.
