Bob Dylan Finally Releases Music Video for “Like a Rolling Stone”

Quite simply amazing. It took me until the very end to realize that I wasn’t being bamboozled. Surreal, experience until you realize how it was made.

Optima, Yahoo! and One Big Mess

I think Glenn Fleishman nails it with this piece regarding Yahoo!’s new logo. It shows a fundamental lack of understanding when it comes to design, and a lack of dignity to ask for professional design help.

I love Optima. I think it’s a beautiful typeface. One that has been mutilated in this case.

PS Vita TV

I don’t have much time to play games anymore, but this, the PS Vita TV caught my attention. To me, this is where the Apple TV (minus the cartage slot, of course) should have been years ago. It will be interesting to see how well it sells.

Remove the meaning behind the maps, and it’s still simply aesthetically pleasing.

The Debate: What Americans Call A Sugary, Carbonated Beverage by Region

There is obviously only one answer to this age-old debate, and I belong to that superior group. The proper name for a non-alcoholic, carbonated beverage is “soft drink”.

Neven Mrgan on iOS 7’s Icon Design Grid

I could not agree with Mr. Mrgan more. I noticed this at the introduction last Monday, but refrained from comment because I haven’t spent time with the beta. Let’s hope they fix this before the fall launch.

Jesus Christ. For Adobe to be the company that creates the applications for designers to use, their new Creative Cloud icons are, at best, insane, at worst, atrocious.

Creative Review Design Studio of the Year: Bloomberg Businessweek

Can’t say I disagree with their choice; Bloomberg Businessweek has been doing some excellent design work over the past couple of years. Very much to my taste.

Adobe Pushes Cloud Services

Adobe will be offering their Creative Suite, now to be known as Creative Cloud, apps only through a subscription starting this summer. They can claim it is for better cloud integration amongst the suite, but we all know it is to cut down on piracy.

This very much reminds me of the transition Apple made from the original iPhone, to the iPhone 3G. That is, the original iPhone was offered without a subsidy for an astronomical price, but the service was cheaper and the the end-user came out ahead in the long run. With the move to the subsidized model, the entry cost was lower, enticing new users, but the there was a higher cost of ownership over it’s lifetime.

This will cost $49.99 a year for the full Creative Suite Creative Cloud apps. Not bad, I guess.
