    But who even user tests by gender?

    I have yet to hear an explanation that helps make sense of the paired design idea. It's always "developers do it!" Except code is evergreen and has specs, and decay and lives on through time.

    Design files are transient. After awhile it's in the code — so you can reference it there. I don't understand the concept yet.

    Curious: Why are you renaming and moving around your component library? It's a pretty fixed thing in my design team so everyone knows where to get at it.

    I don't think so. Designers designed happily on Apple long before ol' Sketcharoo hitched a ride. That's precisely WHY Sketch decided to focus on it as their primary platform.

    I give it 4 years until acquisition.

    I only admire bravado if it can demonstrate better results.

    AirPods, ApplePay, and the poor ecosystem support of the S8 are why Apple is actually still pretty much the leader. They know how to release features that make a splash, and have an opinion that you discuss them.

    That's a pretty hard thing to design in to a product launch, yet they do it every year.

    I tried a Samsung phone 2 years ago, and a Windows Surface Studio last year when the new Macbooks failed to impress — both machines were nice until you tried to power use them across the ecosystem. Forced upgrades (with driver issues), clunky beta technology, and poor performing 3rd party services.

    I don't hate that notch as much as everyone seems to. But the amount of Notch chatter on this very board shows how Apple and the launch of these new phones were a resounding success.

  • Posted to What kind of company swag should I bring with me to a design conference? stickers? pens? totes?, in reply to Zach Hubbard , Oct 03, 2017

    I slap stickers on shit like crazy — but a nice notepad is a better choice for designers I think.

    This is a terrific demo and a great value to the dev community.

  • Posted to Users can’t read anything, and if they could, they wouldn’t want to. (2000), Sep 28, 2017

    It's been my experience some users do actually read in certain contexts

    1) If they anticipate the action they're trying to perform will be complicated (such as an SSO login or hooking up Google Drive to desktop) 2) If their jobs require them to be well-read, such as professors or lawyers 3) If the stakes to them are high

    Most tech companies nowadays that aren't enterprise don't typically deal with this until they're larger scale (and looking to land bulk accounts).
