comment RGB to CMYK conversion problem
Sounds a lot like this question: Saving a document in photoshop CMYK turns SOME black into gray - key bit: "The washed-out greys you're seeing are the software trying to simulate the range of possible blacks on a screen."

comment Why is the blue in my AI file black in my PDF file?
When you say "...and attach it on the email it is black" what software are you using to view it on the email? Sometimes non-adobe PDF software gets confused by illustrator-specific stuff (e.g. hidden layers, some blend modes) and displays them incorrectly. Saving without illustrator editing capabilites can help reduce this. Also, is it a spot colour or is it a CMYK blue? Maybe some software doesn't recognise some spot colour definitions

comment What is a good generalized “navigate to” or “open” or “more” or “choose” or “select” icon?
Really, this depends on what selecting the row and going to the new page actually means. If it's a table of products to buy and the next page is checkout, then it'll be something shopping cart related. If it's a table of choices in a multi-step process and the next page is just the next step, something like a right-pointing arrow. If it's a menu in a food venue and the next page is confirming your order, then something like a knife and fork icon. Etc etc etc.

comment Illustrator - export always anti aliased
If you don't get any answers here, the scripting sections of Adobe's forums are pretty helpful for questions like these.

comment How to make a good scatter plot (bubble chart)?
Not quite true: They use the javascript visualisation library D3, then a layer of custom code unique to this visualisation built on that. See answer below.

comment PDF prints don't look the same as the on the computer
Some PDF viewing software interprets things differently to others - I'd suggest printing from Illustrator directly if you haven't already.

comment Tools for Brainstorming/Mind-Mapping Ideas
Software for general diagram making and particularly flow diagrams would also work for mind maps. Personally, I'd just use Illustrator or whatever alternative was available.
