** The “''is the Cloak of Invisibility, not the Cloak of Nothing Can Detect Me''” is a good point, let’s see: Isn´t Dumbledore telepathic (Legilimency)? so he could at the very least perceive that Harry was under the cloak in Hagrid’s cabin for example, Mrs. Norris smells him, Moody’s Eye might perceive heath for example (we don’t really know who it works but it makes sense, it could be one of its functions to perceive changes in temperature around) therefore he sees Harry and co. under the cloak as body heath silhouettes, that or effectively as said before the cloak cause a distortion in the X-Ray effect of his eye, Dementors are blind and only feel emotions and Luna’s case was a movie in-joke. Though the idea that the cloak is sentient and can choose when to show his user to a possible ally is a very cool idea too.

***Because cats not only use their eyes, they have also very superior sense of smell and hearing, we don’t really know if Mrs. Norris sees under the cloak, we only know that Harry things so, but is just possible that he never thought that she just smells him, as any normal cat would. Besides, who care if the cloak do not hide you from… a house cat? Kind of nitpicking; “Damn, this cloak protected me from those giants and that dragon, but my grandma’s pet sees me, this isn’t really something especial!”.

** Technically, Harry's blood in Voldemort is what ''kept him from dying'' in the forest, coupled with things like him willingly offering himself to be killed, meaning the Elder Wand didn't recognize Voldemort's Killing Curse as a defeat, since he did so with Harry's consent, meaning it still couldn't be used to kill its master. However, I believe what's implied is that the Elder Wand killed what little part of Harry in Harry that ''wasn't'' Harry - that is to say, the bit of Voldemort's soul that had latched onto him - and the rest of Harry was subsequently dragged into limbo with it, resulting in him having the choice to come back.

* How does the whole "becoming Master of Death which means accepting death" thing work? It worked for Harry, sure, but he was a hero who had already undergone a lot of character development unrelated to the Hallows. Other than the fact that it wouldn't make a good story, there was nothing theoretically stopping a mediocre and evil character from getting all three hallows. What would happen then? Does owning the three dang things give one a magical brainwash that makes one accept death, or something?

*** Because he doesn't cast anything that would give it away until it's far too late and all he has left is his arrogance and denile.

** Also, even if he ''had'' recognized it, what's he going to use it for? Summoning his mother? She's already something of a BrokenPedestal to him, since he initially thought that if she were truly a witch, then she wouldn't have died, only to find out he was wrong. His father? Who he hated for ''abandoning'' his mother (for a decent reason, but young Tom didn't stop to consider that) and killed personally when he was just 16? Even after he found out the Elder Wand existed, he went after just to have a better wand, not due to its status as one of the Hallows.

** Was it ever stated when Dumbledore found and viewed that memory? Maybe it was a bit before he found it inside the shack, and was like, "Wait, did he say Peverell? Could that be the Resurrection Stone?" And then when he finds it, he's all like, "Holy Horcrux, it ''is'' the Resurrection Stone! I'm gonna put this ring on right now so I can use it to contact my dead sister! ...Oh, shoot, what a horrible idea!" He found the ring sometime between the fifth and sixth books, and since the question asked was "Why didn't he recognize it when Tom was at school?", that's the answer - he didn't have access to even the memory for a good look, let alone the actual ring, until Tom had already left the school.

** Also, how do we know Ollivander knows what the Elder Wand looks like? All he told Voldemort about it was just rumors and legends...Was there any confirmation that he's actually seen it before?

** Let's also not forget that all three brothers in the story ''died'' in due time, despite them all having the items capable of making one "Master of Death". If Voldemort had read the story, odds are he would've taken that into account.
