    I generally don't vocalize my opinions on rebrandings I don't like but man, this is just straight up awful. Kinda makes me wish that they get a Gap level response. That type is wonderful, especially compared to the just there type they have now.

    It looked almost decent in big lights up on the cantina but still felt off.

    Even the 2032 version they showed from Demolition Man was better.

    Bit of a cycle though, I believe. People assume designers don't use Windows so they only develop for Mac. It's a problem I've run into quite a bit.

    I've e-mailed a few developers of Mac software over the years asking if they'd ever have plans of porting to Windows but the answer is usually the same.

    Player FM is one that I love. I might have tried Pocket Casts but I can't remember.

    I don't listen to many podcasts but I keep it on my phone because the ones I do are hilarious and I love the app.

    Man, I was excited when you came onboard. Had no idea you'd be able to roll out so quickly.

    I had to watch that video after you compared it to a telenovela. That sir, was an insult to telenovelas. If it were over the top and dramatic then I could see it. It was just kinda cheesy.

    On another note, if the voice is that smooth real world, I am definitely intrigued. Not intrigued to buy it but I love the natural sound of it.

  • Posted to Apple Doesn’t Design for Yesterday, in reply to Kristian Krisa , Oct 21, 2014

    I'm late to this post but I'd like to say Vista is an alright OS. It set the ground for Windows 7 which isn't all that different from it but is superior.

    A lot of the hate it gets is just residual bandwagoning. Everyone loved XP but Vista had the same missteps XP did in the beginning.

    I also take offense to the comment you replied to, as a pc toting hippie.

    This made me want to abandon my plans and download and get lost in SimTower.

  • Posted to Google Introduces a $95 Amazon Prime Competitor, Oct 14, 2014

    The end goal is to keep more people from fleeing Google for Amazon when they first search for a product. Each time someone searches for a product on Amazon instead of Google, the search giant loses a chance to serve up advertisements along with the search results.

    This bit is odd to me. Do they believe they're competing with one another there? It's a bit like the common piracy argument. If they weren't going to google it in the first place, in favor of searching Amazon, odds are they weren't going to.

    I don't know how it is for other people but their relationship is pretty much symbiotic when searching for products to me. I google a product and the first result is either the amazon link or the brand's website. Both of which I will end up clicking through.

    The brand's website because they'll most likely be more detailed and Amazon to check the price. I use the other results to see where else it might be listed for perhaps a lower price.

  • Posted to Samsung has more employees than Google, Apple, and Microsoft combined, in reply to Art Vandelay , Sep 28, 2014

    It says they just took the electronics division into account.

    What really alarmed me is the number of devices they put out this year.

    You should try workshops in your area. I'm not sure about any books but I know there are quite a few of them if you live in a big enough city.

    There's also I Still Love Calligraphy

    More expensive than a book but cheaper than an in-person workshop. Although, not by much. You could gift it to your sister.
