  • Posted to Email Design Teardown – Drift, Jul 20, 2018

    Here’s the thing... I actually signed up for drift a while back and got these emails. But I signed up so randomly I completely forgot what drift even was. So when I got these emails, I immediately just deleted them because my time is valuable and I didn’t have a solid enough connection with the product to look back into it.

    I think these emails could benefit from a value statement or a quick reminder of what the product is/does, so potential users like myself wouldn’t just ignore them.

    Total bummer. Does she backup to iCloud or any other service? When I get a new MacBook it takes an hour tops to set it up. Then I just let it sit overnight to download everything stored on the cloud.

    Apple might make a special exception since its just over a year old. This is the reason I always get a computer with AppleCare+, plus I find that the cost is offset due to higher resale value when it’s time to upgrade.

    Last time I had to bring my laptop into the shop, I just purchased a brand new MacBook and returned it when the work on mine was completed.

    Yeah I would even cut down that 8 hours drastically if they know what they’re doing. Since they were trying to launch “fast”, they could have just used bootstrap, some other framework, or even a tool like webflow so the responsiveness would have been a piece of cake. Now they just gave themselves more work to do.

    $30 isn’t really much when I spent $3,000 on a computer. I dont love only having USB-C, but I’ll take the trade off for faster data transfer speeds and an overall higher performance computer. Of course I wish there was some USB 3.0/3.1 ports, but it doesn’t make that much of a difference in my day to day.

    My dongle looks good and is always attached to my MacBook, so it doesn’t really feel like I have to carry anything extra around.

    Haha, yeah I mean I don’t LOVE using a dongle, but I honestly don’t think its that big of a deal. It was cheap, its always attached to my MacBook, and it gives me 3 USB ports, an HDMI adapter, and a USB-C pass through so it doesn’t take up the port.

    How is that even a thing in 2018? Media queries aren’t rocket science and shouldn’t add much time to the build. Adding them after the fact, well, that’ll cost you some unneeded time.

    How old is it? Apple should just replace that lemon.

    My $20 Amazon dongle has hdmi and I use a cheap DisplayPort to usb-c for my external display.

    Eh, I had an early 2013 maxed out rMBP and my new(ish) 2017 is noticeably faster and more capable in almost every way.

    I love the touch bar. Sorry you don’t like it.
