    Think it's sad that Pintrest was offered access to this amazing resource and instead of creating something for the Internet Archive that would outlive their company and provide this resource for everyone they decided to wrap it all into their walled garden.

    Can't use it at all anymore, GPU vector rendering in RGB mode has been broken on 13" USB-C MacBook Pros for almost a year now.

    Adobe blames Apple so wont fix their stuff and clearly Apple doesn't care but I personally think it' s more likely to be Adobes fault because no other GPU accelerated app I use broke.

    Can't believe I pay so much money for software the company doesn't even try to support.

    Looks nice (bit pretentious for what it is) but a brand is more than just some graphics, and the actual realities of what Uber as a brand stand for are so far removed from this it's comical.

    Just trying to hold back the tide though isn't it. A bit like using old.reddit.com, eventually you'll have to move to the new awful design.

    Since when has Apple been about good UX? They ship a keyboard with such little travel you can actually feel your fingers ache after using it because they're hammering against aluminum without cushioning. Ticking RSI time bomb.

    Besides Apple Watch is a fashion item first, just look at the team.

    Back in the day they said that the Watch is more important than the iPhone for them

    Think they'd say the same today?

    So i think at the moment their final vision is to have a Watch which drives parts of the Glasses

    I could definitely see that as a possibility, not sure you'd still need the screen on it though.

    Of course that's assuming the glasses work perfect enough that a real LCD screen no longer matters as much.Check out the project Northstar demos to see what I mean.

    I am the only one who thinks that a circled watchface on a square body looks silly?

    Nope, honestly by now I expected them to have dumped the square face and gone with a circular screen. Always felt like a big compromise from day one, but maybe hubris is preventing them backtracking on that.

    Then again I also don't expect this product to still be sold in 5-10 years with their focus heading to AR.

  • Posted to How do you feel about designers building apps by only using template design files like the one linked?, Aug 30, 2018

    Anyone competent to build a whole app from these templates is competent enough to build something from scratch.

    I understood why this stuff existed back in the days of highly ornate widgets but in 2018 and current design trends I don't understand a scenario where someone is competent enough to use this in the correct way but not competent enough to draw some boxes and text themselves.
