    Just a boring old Google doc in Arial because it DOESN'T MATTER :)

    Thought about it a bit more and wanted to add some more detail for why the way lives are implemented feels wrong.

    It mainly boils down to that fact that every time you open the app, you know in the back of your head you run the risk of either hitting a brick wall, or coughing up a dollar or two. That takes the "casual" right out of casual gaming.

    This is worsened by the fact that the game involves a fair amount of chance. Certainly there is strategy involved, but on some of the more restrictive boards especially, you can just be dealt a bad hand. Or it might be I'm just not good enough. But regardless, if you get a few bad hands, or make a few bad moves, you can end up burning through your entire set of lives in no time at all.

    Love the gameplay and creativity, but the concept of lives ruins it. Seems unnecessarily slimy, and seems especially out of place against the otherwise artful feel-good vibe.

    If there was a 1-time fee to remove lives altogether I'd gladly pay. It'd be a no-brainier $4.99 purchase.

    But otherwise it's unplayable without constantly feeding it dollar bills. And not knowing how much it would take to get to the end, I just got frustrated and deleted it.

  • Posted to Ask DN: Designers! What kind of mouse do you use?, May 25, 2014

    I'm still nursing a Logitech MX Revolution, the perfect mouse for working in OS X in my opinion, because of the thumb rocker wheel that works so nicely with Mission Control, and the great ergonomics of the shape and the free wheel. You can't get these mice for less than $250 anymore because there's just so few left in circulation. I dread the day mine dies, because there's nothing else like it.

    All that being said, with a little bit of usability refinement, these are some great proofs of concept.

    I wrote this, and I actually do use 1Password, and a little bit of iCloud Keychain, and I'd be totally lost without them. The point is how totally ridiculous the whole ordeal has gotten.

    You and I, being tech-savvy, make use of tools like these. But the average person doesn't.
