it's pretty debatable whether or not "export" is a "power user feature"

markers, Friday, 7 June 2013 19:46 (seven years ago) link

Vesper’s current lack of sync, export, etc. isn’t an oversight; it’s an intentional omission at this time.

hah no matter how hard any of them try they just cant bring themselves to justify it

I am in no way suggesting that summoning Cthulhu to rise out of San Francisco Bay and massacre all of Silicon Valley would be a good thing, but I wouldn't do anything to stop it either.

We have a different name because we make a different sandwich. A true Philly hoagie is so much better than a “sub”, it’s not even funny. We’re famous for the cheesesteak, but the Philly hoagie is just as great. (Sarcone’s is the best; Primo’s are excellent too.)

i hate this guy.

He quoted all of marco's "balls" post

stet, Saturday, 8 June 2013 00:22 (seven years ago) link

have we mentioned that he calls himself the "director" of the app?

So basically Grubes acted like a demanding, irascible client with very specific requirements about the design. Wonder if he paid them their hourly rate during development or if everyone was just in it for equity.

Operation Gypsy Dildo (silby), Sunday, 9 June 2013 17:56 (seven years ago) link

taking six months to dev this thing absolutely suggests that an asshole director demanding meaningless iterations. Clients like Gruber are fucking horrible.

If you pretend to yourself that Arment hates those dudes' guts, his post about Vesper still makes sense

The original iPhone was designed for a world where smartphones were horrid little button- and scroll-wheel-driven devices, and where proper humane computer interfaces were driven by mouse and trackpad cursors. The iPhone blended the two — the size and cellular networking of the smartphone, the humaneness of Mac-style UI design — and did so by introducing something new. The touchscreen.

The design of the iPhone software was entirely informed by the fact that this was a new experience, it was nothing like using an existing smartphone, nor anything like using a Mac or Windows PC. It needed training wheels, to get people up to speed. Thus, to name one small example, why iOS buttons have tended to look so very button-y. To inform the user, as clearly as possible, that this is a button that can be tapped.

is he capable of writing anything without sounding like a total choad? "humaneness," christ

tbf "humane" is a term of art in industrial/interface design and typography

caek, Monday, 10 June 2013 16:25 (seven years ago) link

i'm aware of that, but it doesn't make it sound any less ridiculous

scream blahula scream (govern yourself accordingly), Monday, 10 June 2013 16:43 (seven years ago) link

not to come off sounding glib - as somebody who does ux for a living i guess i just reserve a lot of ire for people who overuse "humane" and "empathetic" etc
