comment Is it plagiarism if my logo looks similar to an existing one?
It's also worth pointing out that none of the above example pairs are competitors. They're all in very different industries to the other companies with similar logos. I imagine things would be very different if they were competing in the same trade...

comment How to fill half of a word with one colour and the other half with a different colour in Adobe Illustrator
Nice trick! Very flexible. Random tip for anyone playing with this: be careful if you decide to try out ticking off transform patterns, as it will change all moving, even outside of the Move window, until you tick it back on. Definitely leave Transform patterns ticked!

comment How can I decide between the medium sized intuos tablet or the small one?
Just my experience, but I've always got the impression that most people prefer the large sizes because they're most familiar with drawing across a large sheet of paper across a desk. I'm a bit unusual in that I prefer the smaller sizes, and I think that's because I've spent more time with pocket/portable sketch books than big sheets across a desk, so those smaller sizes feel more familiar to me.

comment Which glyphs to design according to the needs of a particular market?
I don't know of any standard but the difference between "standard" and "pro" fonts might be a good place to begin research - it's an existing rough convention for glyph support adopted by a lot of foundaries.

comment How to practice designing on my own
See also How would I know how good of a designer I am? esp DA01's answer - often being frustrated by your work is a sign that you're improving but your expectations for yourself are improving even faster than your skills - not pleasant, but a good thing, like growing pains. I find it's when I feel like everything's fine that is the most dangerous - often these are the times when I look back and realise I was just coasting.
