Yup. Aluminum is too soft. :( That part I'm aware of b/c the sensors are generally pretty big if you want that high quality of a camera. Stupid thin race ruining everything. Z3+/Z4's grille looks best IMO. It kind of blends in w/ the seam between the glass and frame. Here's hoping the Z5 keeps that along with the rounded frame adopted from the Z3 (not that I see no reason it shouldn't). From what I've seen the rounded frame isn't hard to hold at all b/c it has such a big...
All that's left to do now is wait for the Xperia Z5, though apparently rumors have said that Sony has fallen prey to the big screen game and it's going to be 5.5" from the 5.1/5.2" size...hopefully that's not true.
I blame Nokia for doing this. They were the really obvious example from what I remember.
That's because of how it's basically become a useless marketing tool now, but the people who are in these companies are "designing" a product, not the consumers who look at "design" and say "wow...I should buy that." Anyways as far as Microsoft is concerned, it doesn't really have much room to throw around some fancy effects and whatnot because Apple and Google have taken their design much more seriously. It's not form over function or form follows function. Form and...
Probably. That's what I thought after seeing that article awhile ago. I was like: "Hm...which companies have really bad design b/c of something like this?" They don't exactly have a culture built around design though. They seem more industrial. Google and Apple on the other hand have design at the core of their work. The main difference I see between Apple/Google and Microsoft is the color palette. I highly dislike the color palette used in Metro. It's mostly dark color...
They made a bold claim a year ago saying Microsoft <3 Linux on one of their slides. XD I'm not lying.  Anyways, FINALLY, MULTIPLE WORKSPACES. WHERE THE FUDGE WERE YOU MICROSOFT. Metro still needs to die though. Live tiles almost feels like the new version of widgets (pretty sure those died in Win 8). Though I'm not going to lie, that weather tile is really pretty. Forecast.io should make a weather tile. :P
I don't know but from the looks of it, it's at least better combined. There are some parts that look like the metro app (the "main" settings panel) but quite a few of those links open up the current style of Control Panel up from what I've seen. If not I'm going to kill something because it's by far the worst decision Microsoft has made outside of Metro itself. I know they have a great designer on their XBox team from Art Center College of Design in Cali. They should bring...
Yeah I keep hearing stuff about Georgia Tech and other south schools regarding crime. Hopefully I get my #1 and #2 choice. Basically. At least they finally got their schiit together with the double control panel garbage...I think.
I'm kind of liking the automatic driver updates concept because now I don't have to get AMD Gaming Evolved or set up a task to run the update check for AMD's own driver download software to get the latest drivers. Same w/ NVIDIA and GeForce Experience. They really should have abandoned that logo though. It's going to bring some bad memories back to people. Last time I heard the stigma against IE was strong enough that even though IE11 and 12 were really strong browsers,...
They're going in the OS X and Linux/Unix styled direction where updates are free (so for OS X, any revision, for Linux, kernel updates). They did boldly say awhile ago that Microsoft <3 Linux (there was a freaking slide dedicated to that). Win 10 seems really well done, but it looks like this ThinkPad can't have it yet. Not sure about my desktop because that's all the way in the US right now so I can't do anything about that. And wow, a day with blue skies in Shanghai for...
