Open Web Device says:
Open Web Device: the future of the mobile web is here.
HTML5 is the ubiquitous platform for the web. Web developers can use the same set of technologies they know and love to build rich web applications that will also work across mobile devices.
This could be a big deal.
Dustin Curtis says:
For example, as a designer, it seems to me that many egregious errors were made in the fundamental design of Android’s presentation layer. On all major competing platforms, scrolling performance is given priority over other tasks by the operating system and is accelerated by the GPU. This is important because the interfaces on touch screen devices are treated as tangible, physical objects by the human brain. When a physical action you make with your finger does not lead to the response your brain has learned to expect in the physical world, something feels very wrong. It doesn’t feel genuine.
It might sound like the most pedantic obsession over minutae, but stuff like this matters.
It matters not just for us user experience people who pore over every detail, but for ‘regular users’ who are forced to approach interface after interface: re-learning the basics over and over because of design decisions made without proper thought.
The 9 a.m.-to-5 p.m. workplace is almost dead. Throw your preconceived notions about vacation out the window and give your employees the no-strings-attached, unlimited vacation days they deserve or you’ll soon be a dinosaur.
One of the features of Stripe that really impressed me on my first visit was, since I don’t know if it has an established name, what I’ll call the Anonymous User pattern. If you go to Stripe.com and press “Get Started with Stripe”, you can try out a fully-functional Stripe account without ever entering a username, email address, or password.
