Here's a random sampling of some articles I wrote for my blog. Call it designing with words.
The media was set on fire last week when Beyoncé Knowles rang in Barack Obama’s inauguration with a beautiful rendition of the star spangled glory—that she lip-synced to. While the track that played was her singing, the world cried ‘controversy’ because Bey didn’t actually perform live. My thoughts, who cares?!
The rumor mill is hot again today with yet another rumor that an Apple iWatch is more than just whispers, it’s full on in the works. There’s at least 100 product designers working on it right now! Are you surprised by the the possibilities of this new addition to the Apple product family? I’m not—I called it forever ago!
That didn’t take long. It was great to wake up to an email this morning from Adobe Customer Care, the subject line “Important Customer Security Alert.” Looks like Adobe got hacked, and I’m not alone—there are 2.9 million others in the same boat.
By now most of you are security conscious. You know what to click, what not to, and have your Facebook profiles locked down—leaving all your personal info visible to just your friends (right?). Status updates, wall posts, photos, who your friends are—all of that info is safe. But when it comes to “liking” something, that’s a whole different story. Likes are public. You’d be surprised to know there’s more info about you out there than you’d care to, well—like.
If a bomb explodes, kills people, and no one is around to report it—would we all still feel “terrorized”?
Think about it for a second. If we weren’t constantly bombarded by over the top, sensationalized news reports, or heat of the moment posts on social media, would the world be such a terror-able place?
Hot on the heels of Apple’s successful new releases, there’s another group looking to score big—hackers. Armed with phishing emails that lead to phoney login pages, these bad guys are after your Apple ID, password, and more. Don’t worry, there’s good news. Their attempt is bad—really bad.
