    I care enough about comedy to laugh at my own expense ;)

    Think I'll get one for at home, take it from there.

    Get. Out.

    They break?

    I'm so tempted now just to get it to that point and laugh my ass off.

    Is it as slapstick as I'm imagining it right now? :]

    ... you think THAT was my point? Really? Or do you think I might've meant that the price has gone up to be astronomically high compared to how it used to be?

    It's not like a loaf of bread went up from $4 to $10.

    Heck, 2 phones ago I paid $450 for a Nexus 5.

    The large one starts at $1799 Australian dollars. Up to $2369.

    Or you can spend that money on, you know, food for several months. Or 2 movie tickets per month for 5 years. Or buy a car with it.

    So yes, that name's fair.

  • Posted to I'm passionate about UI & UX where do I start?, in reply to Ken B , Sep 12, 2018

    Try all of them. Find articles detailing the differences, decide which tools are best for which use-case.

    Get adapt at switching tool-sets, to learn each one's strengths and weaknesses.

    Don't become a fanboy. It's fine to master a single tool, but never become "that person" that will argue it over anything at any point in time.

    (Or if you want it in an analogy: sometimes you nail two boards together, sometimes you screw them. It all depends on the context.)

    • Start side-projects & learn from them
    • Find and contribute to (online) communities
    • Absorb as much as you can (books, articles, video, podcasts, etc)

    I feel like this article requires some examples. At the moment it's a bit "man yells at clouds".

    Show me an app that would've been performing better with a user interface that's all "different".

    Also, we should realize guidelines are just that. Guidelines. Not strict rules. They're a set of constraints which you can build on. And they're not un-moving or un-forgiving. There's ways to work with them, or alter them to fit your purpose.

    We, as a culture, need to stop looking at information as a bible, and start treating it as suggestions! :)

    I love this kinda stuff and always wanted to build one, but never have.

    Just one of those things, I suppose :D
