Forgive me for linking to a piece on Medium, especially one that requires you to log in to read. But this interesting approach to using an iPhone compelled me to do so.
I’ve been feeling a bit of “app fatigue” when it comes to my iPhone lately. So many things on it feel like a bit of a time suck, a way to easily get lost in a world of social media and news. On reflection, maybe I’ve started to fall into too much habitual checking of apps and not letting my mind wander with down time. It could be an interesting experiment to try and see what effect this kind of setup might have on my iPhone use.
Microsoft have introduced the Surface Studio which looks incredible. As a designer this has instantly appealed to me. When I was a teenager studying for my GCSEs and A-Levels I had a large drawing table in my bedroom, I used it as my desk to do all my design coursework since at the time it was all mostly done by hand. When I watched this video I was instantly taken back to that time, this looks like the drawing table of today. It looks like the iMac Apple could make if they applied some of their iPad vision to the world of desktop computing.
Very nice idea from the guys at Moo who continue to push the printed business card. People say the business card is dying out, but I’m not so sure it ever will, especially with ideas like this on the way.
The UK is finally starting to catch up with the rest of the world with the announcement of it’s first 4G LTE network from EE, the parent company of T-Mobile and Orange. The timing of which seems more than a little coincidental with a certain Apple event happening tomorrow.
Interesting interview with Hewlett Packards CEO Leo Apotheker which includes this little nugget.
“HP will stop making announcements for stuff it doesn’t have. When HP makes announcements, it will be getting ready to ship,” he promises, saying the products launched on 9 February will be on sale just a few weeks later.
So how come everything launched today isn’t available til the summer?
