I’ve never been bothered by floating action buttons in Google apps, but I think the author of this piece makes some solid points, some of which I’ve actually hit.
More on Vainglory. I agree with the assessment here.
Vainglory is literally the finest game I’ve ever played on mobile. You should check it out if you haven’t, and in the meantime, this article is a nice read on what makes it special.
The Apple Watch is the best smartwatch you can buy, assuming that you have an iPhone. Or that you want a smartwatch.
A very fine review. Worth the read if you're curious about the Apple Watch.
Interesting look at the new Ubuntu phone and scopes. Scopes have been around on the desktop for awhile, so not sure I’d call the idea brilliant. Scopes were on the desktop for a year or more when I left Canonical. Clever idea to use these to work around lack of apps, but let’s not act like this is some new hotness no one else thought of.
I am anxious to see how the phone fares and if people like it. It’s been a long time coming.
Full disclosure, I’m partial to Canonical’s cloud offerings from my time there and was always skeptical of the phone. I certainly hope they succeed though.
Nice to see all this data about the game. It was, obviously, a runaway hit of a game, so this is likely the upper-bounds of a successful iOS game launch. I'm sure there are better return on investment stories for games launched on spare-time development, but this is probably a closer look at what a real indie studio can do.
Adobe has created a Moleskine app. I’d like to check this out. I’ve been hooked on drawing and art apps lately.
Chief executive Tim Cook confirms the Apple Watch will ship in April to take on Google, Samsung, Sony and LG
I think this is only surprising if you’re naive or not around any real kids. My other thought is that I wonder how many adults only spend 2 hours a day looking at screens?
Like games and TV before them, setting arbitrary limits for phone or tablet use seems pointless to me. Sure, doing nothing all day but playing on a device is bad for anyone, but every person is different. Humanity is more adaptable and resilient than we realize.
