Re: background updates: As far as I can tell, in the system preferences on 10.12, there is an option to deactivate automatic Security & System updates; or are you referring to maybe even some other mechanism ?
Hey John, thanks for your answer! Though, I think you misread the question, as the subject was a Hackintosh setup I was asking about. Yet, it's a valid comparison win vs mac.
Big Thanks for the detailed answer & resources, Louie ! Forced updates are definitely something I need to research further before building a hackintosh. Thx also for clarifying that your last build was 4 years ago, since I think I heard that the process became much easier & (hopefully) more stable recently. SnazzyLab on youtube even has some step by step howtos. Since I never actually build a haskintosh, I can't judge though how accurate they are. Hey, maybe we should start a new topic on DN for everything Hackintosh, maybe even were a few people could start together building their machines. :P
Most prominent heir of the Bauhaus legacy is probably Apple. They have been named as one of their main inspirations, especially the Bauhaus mantra of bringing together "Form and Function", as well as "design objects" that are affordable for everyone. ( well, in Apple's case for everyone with deep pockets )
Agree with the vertical padding of content areas, though disagree with the menu and font. I like the bold font as differentiator for the menu, and the font's elegant, however you definitely need more line-height for your headings. Well, for the footer/last call to action I like that's an attention grabber, but the text is too unreadable contrast wise.
Great, clean design. Gets to the point fast, which is always good. Like the simple color choice (maybe the yellow tone could be a bit stronger/deeper). Footer has some spacing problems to the adjacent button. Copy is quite alright in what info it tries to get across, but as you said, needs to be rephrased (if you like, maybe I could do a quick rewrite). Also, how did you get the client testimonials: are these people you actually know or just some examples? Keep up the good work.
Well, if you want to see a company who has made stealing websites / apps / ideas their business model, look no further than "Rocket Internet" (a.k.a. Crooked Internet). "Founded" by the sons of a billionaire, all that they do is spawn company after company by copying successful startups (people who literally figured out their business model themselves), and just changing the name to something vaguely cool sounding (ex: Wimdu, original AirBnB). And by copying, I mean literally copying, e.g. the source code of many originals has been detected in their copies. They are now even at the stock market trading. Best of all, they think they have that "startup culture" going and fill their offices with hipsters. Don't understand how one could work for such a company like "Rocket Internet". Sometimes this business really sets me off.
I was thinking of doing the same. Could you elaborate a bit on your experiences for all of us in the design community? Like: - How long did it take you to setup ? - Was it complicated to get this running ? - How stable is the system? - What features are you able to use / not use? - What's about automatic updates & backups ? Also, I'd be interested in the recommendations of monitors you mentioned.
Nice, but ... no scrum board ?
Those are dev specific feature introductions. I guess what Brennan was referring to, and what most of the people were looking forward to, were direct consumer innovations. Or are you going to use ARkit or ML directly ?
