  • Posted to Any research or case study for dark mode UI?, in reply to Yasen Dimov , Apr 13, 2019

    This is not research. It's guidance on how to use a specific design system's colors.

    Why they don't preinstall all the SF fonts, including Mono, is beyond me.

    I find this ironic, because nowhere in this article is there mention of why that title is so click-baity, and to boot, I’ve often used Spotify as an example of a product that clearly builds different clients with different teams, and none of them appear to leverage the same UI principles. All feel like they are communicating with different voices.

    I have used a Magic Trackpad for a long time and love it. https://www.apple.com/shop/product/MJ2R2LL/A/magic-trackpad-2

  • Posted to So, I'm buying a new MacBook. Question is, which one?, Jul 05, 2017

    My new employer got me early 2017 model MBP: 15", with Touch Bar. It's super fast, and can handle running a high-end graphics game in an emulator, something my 2015 MBAir chugged doing.

    The keyboard is very responsive and springy, but the noise level of the keys does take some getting used to. At first, it feels like a scene from a movie where someone is typing obnoxiously loud. I'm very aware of it when I'm not working alone.

    The touch bar I only use for 1Password/TouchID. I also use it for volume and brightness control, but only because I have to. The lack of the physical feedback esc key is still foreign after a month of use. To be honest, most of the time I forget it's even there, as I suspect most touch-typers do.

    The display is gorgeous. The bezel is smaller around the screen and the SF font on the keyboard is a nice touch.

    The force trackpad I still have a hard time dragging and dropping with. It's not the extra pressure that's the problem for me. It's the more nuanced gestures and light touches.

    Overall, it's the best laptop I've owned, though I'm not sure I'd opt for the touch bar if I were to purchase one myself. Then again, I think it depends on your age and experience.

    It's a prettier version of Soulver.

    Can you explain what is "happening"?
