Aim

Hi Readers,

New aim from me as the publisher of this blog.

To write up an evaluation of a new peice of software that I’ve downloaded and tried every week.

I’ve already done this a couple of times, but each one lack information – more of just a pointer to where the software comes from and what it does.

Thanks, Keep Reading!

iPad vs iPhone

Relax, the iPad isn't going to kill the iPhone

Taken from TUAW – “The Unofficial Apple Weblog”

Relax, the iPad isn’t going to kill the iPhone!

There are ways I want to use my iPhone. There are ways I want to use my iPad. And I’m perfectly happy owning both. Because there are things the iPhone does really well (GPS stuff, iPod listening stuff, and so forth) that make it pocket-awesome and there are things the iPad does and will do well (eBook reading, bigger Web pages, better movie size, iWork) that make it backpack-awesome.

Loving one does not mean you have to stop loving the other. Any parent can tell you that.

Sure, the iPad with its 3G-assisted Skype service may be able to allow me to chat comfortably with others. And that’s not a bad thing. In fact, I seriously look forward to doing exactly that while traveling cross country with the family. But the iPad’s ability to subsume iPhone functionality does not make the iPhone obsolete.

There’s a reason why I haven’t hooked up my Mac mini to a portable UPS system to carry along with a keyboard and monitor to my local Starbucks. Form does matter. And it matters just as much as function. The iPhone isn’t going anywhere any time soon. It complements the iPad rather than replaces it. Long live the iPhone. Long live the iPad.

Just Creative Design (JCD)

I found this interesting website this afternoon. Its kept and managed by a man called Jacob Cass – he shares his ideas of what makes a good design and how to write up briefs etc.

The site aslso has interesting articles like top 100 fonts and step by steps on how to start your designs thus following onto how much to charge for your designs.

This would be my ultimate dream to have a site like this and share my knowledge with other designers! What a role model!

Take a look at his site, and follow him on twitter.

Take care and follow me on twitter!
