    Yup, paid as high as $10 for a single patch or up to $40 a pop for some other stuff.

    Depends entirely on what you want and as a platform isn't bad.

    Perhaps in the genre of design there are some issues, I've only used it for other things, one off embroidered patches, silly illustrations, etc.

    Also, one thing to keep in mind is sometimes things can cost a lot more than $5 with all the add ons.

    On your attaching to a browser comment, totally agree. There's a reason Opera killed off their own browser and started building off of Chrome years back.

    I was being a little cheeky, but the trendy way of showing off software seems to be showing that it solves problems for mobile, and it has been for many years now.

    Web apps ain't cool. We've known this since everyone jumped to Sketch from Photoshop.

  • Posted to What backpack are you rocking?, Jul 18, 2018

    Roadrunner Medium Rolltop. Has lasted 4 years of 15-30k miles a year commuting every day in rain or shine, with occasional trips as a carryon. Carries normal work supplies, but I've also carried frozen turkeys, booze, and an odd loaf of bread on the way home. Applied some fresh waterproof earlier this year, but the thing is pretty indestructible.

    Also, this is the best roll top buckle system I've used. Clasps are finicky, zippers unzip, and most tension based system let go, but this doesn't.

    Interesting that they went to India to develop when I'm sure a lot of their own engineers ride motorcycles to the campus in Mountain View daily...

    Great market to support though, especially since India and much of Asia have been utilizing scooters and motorcycles for years to get around as they are an effective and attainable means of transportation.

  • Posted to An alternative to the Hamburger Menu: The Link Bar, Jul 03, 2018

    This is less of an alternative and more of an additional piece of navigation.

    That aside, the study seems to conclude that putting links up top is beneficial, but anything that requires scrolling will get no increased traffic. So, if you have more than the 3 or so links that can fit, you need to have a full fledged navigation section up top, which was previously hidden behind the hamburger menu because it takes up space. And not having a large chunk of navigation was kind of the whole point of the hamburger in mobile.

    Also, ecommerce-centric, and I wonder how it'd apply to other industries.

    Are you referring to the not being professional or the usage of the gmail client itself?
