Here's a random sampling of some articles I wrote for my blog. Call it designing with words.
Looks like Facebook has another new ‘feature’ to go alongside the likes of suggested friends, apps or ‘people you may know’—enter ‘rate this place’. Chances are if you’ve checked-in somewhere in the past, Facebook wants to know more. How would you rate that?
Seriously. I thought it was a joke. I really did! It was funny—at first. Oh the silly stylist who approved the run-down beltless look for their disheveled spokesman. What were they thinking? But the joke didn’t end there. Oh no, it kept going, and going, and going. I don’t think I’ve seen a TV screen in the last 2 months without Joe McDumpsterdiver on it! Trivago’s crossed the line. It needs to go. Now.
Oops, Facebook did it again. Only this time it’s not really an oops, it’s a well thought out facelift that’s sure to make some noise. That’s right, your news feed is changing again! Don’t groan. This isn’t another Timeline scandal. Facebook finally gets it—mobile comes first! Say goodbye to clutter and hello to bright, beautiful stories.
TV as we know it, is over. The formula that worked for years, works no more. The same way MP3s “killed” the music industry, modern technology, high speed internet, and companies like Netflix have “killed” TV. Now we binge!
You’ve probably seen this joke make the rounds on Facebook a few times now. Take something like your mom’s maiden name, the street you grew up on, maybe the name of your first pet—put them together and what do you get? Your porn name! Hilarious, right? Wrong. Those same questions are the same ones many websites use for security to verify who you are. Oops?
Wow. Fox News just finished the renovations to their newsroom. The most notable addition to the “news deck” is all of their new BATs—big area touchscreens—that you can see littering the background. These 55” touch screen monitors are going to help Fox News anchors report the news better. No, I’m not joking. Seriously.
