Last week, Google release Chrome, their new web browser. My initial note about it's release can be found here. Google came to play with this release and after using it for a week or so I wanted to weigh in with a little more information. Here is a little bit more of a review.continue reading...
Entries for Tag: 'user interface'
Following up to my previous entry this is what the new F1 steering wheel looks like. Pretty neat and very interesting from a UI standpoint. Wish they made these for normal cars!
Also, check out some more photos from the Signapore Grand Prix, also from the big picture.
Update: Here are a couple more links: Some history of the steering wheel from F1Technical and another article about F1 User interfaces.
Brought to you from the ministry of the obvious, Wired does a piece telling you what you already know. Sci-Fi has a healthy dose of the "Fi". I watched the movie for the first time last night and was really impressed. It seemed remarkably well done. If you haven't seen it, skip the Wired article till you do, but its worth your couple of hours.
On a side note, the software and tech (not related to the suit directly except for that awesome HUD) featured a very prominent role in the film as well. Some scenes heavy on the "minority report" type effects, but all well done. If anyone knows of any discussions about the software around the internets please let me know.
PDF Warning. Article from 2006 by Maureen Stone. If you are ever designing data visualization (charts, graphs, infographics, etc) the colors you choose for your data sets are very important. It is amazing how wrong some software such as excel gets this right out of the box.
Google Chrome has been released, to much fanfare and much grumbling. After using it for about a day, both at work and at home, I am happy to report that I am very pleased. I had a little trouble importing my bookmarks into chrome from firefox at work but had no trouble at home and finally got them in at work as well. The browser is very fast and although there seems to be a few rendering issues with images it is overall very mature for a google product we only heard about a couple of days ago. I will follow up with a better write up after using it a little more, but I will recommend downloading it and trying it out if you have the slightest curiosity. It is worth the try.
I will put out a better review later next week after some more usage, but in the meantime, those of you that have tried it, let me know what you think.
