Try these cases yourself. A. Judgemental Heuristics and Biases:

Heuristic Evaluation January 1, 1997 Discount usability engineering is our only hope.
In computer science and mathematical optimization, a metaheuristic is a higher-level procedure or heuristic designed to find, generate, or select a lower-level procedure or heuristic (partial search algorithm) that may provide a sufficiently good solution to an optimization problem, especially with incomplete or imperfect information or limited computation capacity. Metaheuristics may make few assumptions about the optimization problem being solved, and so they may be usable for a variety of problems. Metaheuristic
Heuristic (/hjʉˈrɪstɨk/; Greek: "Εὑρίσκω", "find" or "discover") refers to experience-based techniques for problem solving, learning, and discovery that give a solution which is not guaranteed to be optimal.
Name it and webbies will buy it PENN STATE (US) — A new study suggests online consumers judge a site’s or a software’s credibility by its name—and the more specialized the better. In an experiment, participants said they trusted websites, recommendation-providing software, and even computers labeled to perform specific functions more than the same Internet tools with general designations, says S.
