A standard post created using some basic elements including a quote, ordered list and a popup image. As a web designer you need to consider what people do with their hands and heads. You need to design your products in a way that requires minimal input, and delivers maximal output. My skills improved a lot when I started designing fonts.

Tiny Reichenstein is the founder and director of Information iA’s usual trade is website design and consultancy along with the odd concept like the Twitter strikethrough, but the company has also found recent success in iOS and Mac app development. Writer for iPad is a pioneering minimalist text editor, and its focus-enhancing combination of sparse visuals and refined typography has since made the leap to OS X and the iPhone.

Nothing is more destructive to good design than group thinking and collective decision making

Who studied German literature, German literature is, who is studying medicine, is doctor who studies physics is physics, but who studied philosophy, this will by no philosopher. But I would say that the study of philosophy according to specialization may be an ideal preparation for the Informationsachitekten. For philosophy teaches one to work on and to the order of the terms.

About Typography. Everybody Can Feel It

Tiny women carry amazingly large bags, twice their eighty-pound weight. Some of the women carry babies in slings around front. A good adult picker can harvest over two hundred pounds of cherries and earn $8 a day, more than twice the Guatemalan minimum daily wage.

Online news magazines is often accused them all look similar. What do you think of this criticism?

The appearance of a page is secondary for me. What interests me as a user, are content, rhetoric, how to deal with facts and opinions. Interested me as a designer, such as news sites work and that is above all, how well they are legible. In this respect, especially European sides still have much to learn.

  1. Touch screen devices seem to be similar to the Web, because they seem to have a similar issue.
  2. The average word length shrinks. And that is very good.
  3. Desktop apps for work, iPad / iPhone apps are for watching and playing, the Internet is to communicate.

The allegation that approach visually newspaper websites is absurd. If one keeps in mind how similar many newspapers are printed each other, which is a laughable accusation.

Jawbone Up Fitness Rubber Band Review

A review gallery post with full width featured image enabled. Anyone who bought one of Jawbone’s much-hyped Up fitness bands last year found themselves an unwitting participant in a beta test. The brand-new platform promised to get you up and exercising, help you sleep and eat better, and make you more stylish to boot — and we liked it. But there were some missing features, and some overly simple software for the device.

And then the Up started breaking. Weeks and months after being purchased, our review unit and many others simply stopped taking charges or turning on. Jawbone acknowledged the fault, offered its buyers a no-questions-asked refund (even if you just didn’t like the thing, you could return it), and went back to the drawing board.

Are you dealing in calories and carbohydrates, or points and badges?

I wear my watch almost everywhere, but I take it off when I sit at my laptop. It’s just uncomfortable having the band scratching and scraping around the palmrest, and it forces me to perch my arms awkwardly above the keyboard. That’s not a problem for my watch, which doesn’t need to be worn all the time, but I had to take off the Up as well because it caused the same problems.

Tracking your life

The Up tracks three things: activity, sleeping, and eating. The first is simple, requiring only that you wear the bracelet. Its engine turns the motion of your wrist into calories burned, steps walked, and active versus inactive time.

UP by Jawbone http://jawbone.com/up

The Up’s vibrating motor is used for two different alarm features, both of which I’ve come to love. When you’re sleeping at night, you can set your alarm, and the Up will rouse you up to 30 minutes before that time based on when you’re in lighter sleep and will wake up feeling better.

Wrap-up

I’ve now lived with both the $99.99 Jawbone Up and $99.95 Fitbit Ultra fitness devices so you’re probably wondering which I would recommend? So am I, honestly.

Delevingne Photoshoot We Love

Full width gallery post without sidebar. The other, more subdued Delevingne is most certainly a Woman We Love. None of the fireworks, all of the heat. No wonder the fashion industry has been so dismayed by news that Poppy Delevingne has left these shores and headed Stateside to take up residence in Fergie’s New York pad

Besides being known for his work for the Storm modeling agency, it is followed by fashion blogs and lifestyle, as it has a very distinctive style, blending both the natural beauty of your garment over the season IN .

Selected for the 1932 campaign, where Chanel celebrates the 80th anniversary of its online Bijoux.

Educated at the liberal £26,000-a-year Bedales School in Hampshire, she was talent-spotted by Storm model agency founder Sarah Doukas (who also ‘discovered’ Kate Moss at the age of 14), whose daughter was in the same class as Poppy’s sister. Poppy did her first magazine shoots at 16, then, after A-levels and a gap year spent travelling, found herself the toast of the town.

Poppy Delevingne: Fashion’s it girl

The other, more subdued Delevingne is most certainly a Woman We Love. None of the fireworks, all of the heat. No wonder the fashion industry has been so dismayed by news that Poppy Delevingne has left these shores and headed Stateside to take up residence in Fergie’s New York pad.

Fashion’s It Girl

Nowadays Pandora works in the private-shopping department of London retail emporium Selfridges. The fashion plate still has her wardrobe from the ’70s and ’80s, though it’s been kept under lock and key from her daughters since she noticed a few things missing.

This fun-loving British transplant is blooming on Manhattan’s party circuit.

Still, it’s clear where Delevingne inherited her nonchalant sense of style — the one that enables her to throw a leather bomber over a sundress for a polo match at Governors Island or swan without a second thought into a charity gala in a Chanel jumpsuit. Her style has also been influenced by a couple of years in New York. She’s updated her English-magpie ways, now cleverly mixing quirky bits and bobs with sleeker hard-edged pieces.

Marshall's speaker has a retro feel

He is the rockers among mobile musicians: the Marshall Hanwell , a speaker in the style of famous guitar amplifiers, which is also known by the great stages of the world.

Smart phones, MP3 players, etc. are very down to earth connected only by jacks. No Bluetooth, no docking, no frills.The plugging the supplied cable with its gold-plated connectors into a headphone jack as well as very reminiscent of connecting an electric guitar.

The speaker’s sound is rich, clean, and endowed with Marshall’s characteristic electronic crunch.

The controls are reduced to the bare minimum. Only a toggle switch for dressing and stable knobs for volume and tone – and which is sensational: Extremely clean highs, powerful bass, even if you turn right! And with its 100 watts of Hanwell is extremely loud. Since it is better to invite the neighbors equal to the party.

No frills

Stanmore , the new speaker system, the manufacturer will fit perfectly into theMarshall family one. The vinyl casing, gold trim, Mashall logo and classic Boxenbespannstoff represent the typical vintage look: The ingredients from the Stanmore already a rock’n’roll classics to make. Whether on tour or in everyday life, powerful sound and compatibility make the Stanmore into an optimal, so the manufacture.

The three typical, Marshall-style controls for volume, bass, treble and a switch to flip on and off the Stan Mores, located on the top of the unit. Through the included 3.5mm spiral cable, which has the appearance of a typical guitar cable, virtually any music source to the powered speakers can be connected.

CLASSIC MARSHALL DESIGN DETAILS

The Stanmore features a classic Marshall design, with a vintage-looking front fret, gold-coloured metal details, and that iconic script logo. So it will never look out of place amid the rest of your Marshall collection.

Can be beyond even via Bluetooth with aptX technology or the two other connections ( RCA input / optical input ) connect directly to their sources.Thanks to the high quality components Stanmore intended to provide a detailed sound across the entire frequency range without sacrificing quality. The sound is punchy, without losing detail, and very clear and powerful to penetrate the entire spectrum from Stanmore.

Mission to The Edge of Space

How does it feel to jump from 21,800 metres? Ask Felix Baumgartner. This comes against Red Bull, as the company sold in 2011 while 11.4 percent more doses, but still of the 4.25 billion euro annual turnover more than half (2.3 billion) in Austria is generated. Outside the country, the Group still has plenty of room for improvement.

The Austrians broke through the first man to break the sound barrier in free fall. Although the project initially was under an unlucky star, Baumgartner likewise made exactly a year ago after several attempts in the desert of New Mexico in Roswell.

I wanted to open the parachute after descending for a while but I noticed that I was still at an altitude of 50,000 feet.

Red Bull moves in dimensions that are usually only achieved the Olympic Games or World Cup Soccer Championships. The 50 million euro (15 million euro amount to the expenses for the team 35 million those for the equipment), which can cost the life dream of Felix Baumgartner Salzburg, are a trifle compared to the advertising value that is generated by the media attention .

Passion is priceless

May say that Felix Baumgartner, adventure and passion have no price in the face of these numbers is not surprising. Red Bull looks for his exceptional athlete and that he has refused to rise when the slogan « Welcome to my world – the world of Red Bull » recite. We will see in Fuschl far behind when Baumgartner was at least the attention of the world on the sweet juice from the silver-blue box.

Was calculated switched to 1.8 billion TV sets and a billion connections to the live broadcast on the Internet. Last comparisons were drawn to the New Year’s Concert of the Philharmonic, which acts as a provincial event over the Stratos project. The advertising value of the New Year’s Concert is estimated at a range of 150 million to 450 million euros households. Extrapolated to the Stratos would be more than eight billion euros.

Three world records

The Fédération Aéronautique Internationale, which cares for the recording of data records in the aviation world, recognized with the jump to three world records.Baumgartner reached the maximum speed of Mach 1.25 or exactly 1357.6 hours kilometers, the highest jump at 38969.40 meters and the longest free fall, with a length of 36402.6 meters. Only a teddy bear outplayed in August with a « Spung » 39 kilometers from the record of Baumgartner.

After the Stratos project, the now 44-year-old Baumgartner announced plans to return to professional sports and the back to build up as a rescue helicopter pilot a new foothold.

Bates Motel is this week's TOP pick

The Old Head Golf Links is one of the most remarkable developments ever conceived in the history of golf; an Atlantic promontory that will never be rivalled in terms of drama and beauty.

It rises hundreds of feet high above dramatic cliffs, surrounded by the ocean on all sides and commanding the most spectacular views from virtually every part.

Is it a true links? Is it a great test of golf? No matter the question, the answer is the same: Find a way to get to this clifftop layout  unabashedly set on a headland jutting into the Celtic Sea.

The Old Head of Kinsale is a national monument and an ancient royal site, fortified by a castle at the narrowest part of the promontory, with history traceable back to several centuries before Christ. It is a place of special historical, archaeological and scientific interest.

Glory Game

The Erainn Celtic people, the first Irish settlers, fortified the peninsula by building a fort, the remains of which can still be seen today, along with the castles and signal tower on The Old Head itself. The new lighthouse was built on the site in 1853, carrying on the ancient tradition of « Navigational Fires » situated on the promontory.

Nature Conservation

The Old Head was included in the « Inventory of Outstanding Landscapes in Ireland » as being ‘a narrow coastal headland with spectacular cliffs of geological interest’. The landscape development program at The Old Head is designed to enhance, complement and harmonise the newly planted areas with the existing vegetation. It consists primarily of native maritime species, coupled with a refined selection of seaside plants from the flora of all five continents.
