@helveticade It blows me away that they get away with pretending.
With all that talent at Facebook, you’d think ugly pages like this wouldn’t exist. But privacy’s not their priority. http://t.co/FLZ9XEDRKU
@chrisbride Your idea of Apple TVs hooked up in meeting rooms: they’re all over here. AirPlay is so handy.
And there’s that S word again… “Skeuomorphism.” Whatever your stance, remember MS DOS and every desktop UI metaphor with similar roots.
It’s funny how “flat design” is talked about as a new thing. Pick up a history book and turn to the chapter on Modernism.
@trowdy The design trilogy is definitely worth a watch: Helvetica, Objectified and Urbanized.
@trowdy Love that doco and the whole trilogy really. Gary Hustwit gets it.
