  • Posted to How come everybody loves to hate self-checkouts?, in reply to Tyson Kingsbury , Jul 16, 2019

    The number one above all answer is that the self-checkout machines are built to assume any unexpected input is attempted theft and people don't like the inconvenience and embarrassment that causes. I would be surprised if most people who have a poor association with self-checkout are primarily concerned about job loss.

    What was great about Dropbox was that it was a dumb, magic folder. Drop things in it, and then they were over there. I guess the writing has been on the wall for a while, but I really don't want to let this (likely large, resource-intensive) app onto my computer just to sync files. That's still all I care about.

    yeah, it looks super cool but I'll be honest my eyes glazed over after reading one sentence and I closed out.

    While visually very nice, I think the content and copywriting more or less wastes the whole homepage. If you change one thing, rewrite the hero completely. The animation is far too slow, and "Remco.design / You are in the right place for remco and design" could not be less informative or intriguing.

    As for the rest of the page, I already assume you're going to say you're a good designer, why wouldn't you? Instead of telling me that in a few different ways, SHOW me so I can make the decision for myself. Put the work front and center.

    That's not true, nor what that says. And fair use, even if legitimate, will not save you from a lawsuit. Fair use only protects you when you're already in court and your lawyer makes a successful argument that it's fair use. At that point you've already lost money on the whole thing.

  • Posted to Uibot.app (generated UI proof of concept), Jun 04, 2019

    A great theoretical idea that's not borne out at all.

    The "About" section hilariously over-inflates what this is. Far from approaching an "infinite amount of UI designs to choose from" it seems to randomize about 10 variables to essentially theme one of two rather similar UIs.

    This - I've never found any use case that moves me away from the native answer. It's well done, continues to get better, and requires no new accounts or company relationships.

    It takes about 5 seconds from icon click to usable window in my experience - unacceptable.

    I want to know how you get all the dust out of it, are the holes vacuum-friendly?
