comment Star vs Heart icon to represent save as a favourite
A pin icon is familiar in a maps context. They can be colored diferently, you can have a star in a pin. Its equally good on the map as well as a menu. Aside: Feedly uses bookmark icon for articles.

comment Is the mental model of time advancing to the right in charts globally accepted?
IMO Language AND mathematical convention play a part. In Cartesian coordinates, 5 lies on right of 4. I would extend this, saying that Feb 2015 lies on right of Jan 2015. If a list of steps were laid out horizontally, step 2 will be right of step 1.

comment Why do department stores create bad experiences with escalators?
My friend was a visual merchandising guy who directed arrangement of shelves. This may be extended to construction: a moviegoer in a nearby mall climbs exits the hall by climbing it to top floor and is routed around the games area (kinda novel in India) and the other stores you dont usually seek out.

comment Why did early telephones use a rotary dial instead of 10 individual buttons?
Push-button landlines in India used to have a pulse mode too, which generates clicks via electronics. Some exchanges could only follow pulse dials.

comment Why do users click randomly and rapidly when an application hangs?
I would fidget with ctrl+c on a computer and the clear in a calculator if those actions offered low levels of feedback ux.stackexchange.com/a/11694/8159

comment Term (and other depiction) for 'abstract' and 'concrete' slot filters
Thanks. Now I will let the buttons and boxes go with the flow of the users. I will rather use 'must', 'must not','prefer' and 'prefer not'
