The Oculus Rift VR headset. The problem with innovation in the gaming industry is the lack of innovation in the right direction. The Oculus Rift VR headset clearly isn’t solving a problem that needs to be solved at the moment, and we certainly could be moving in a better direction in terms of closing existing […]


Sony isn’t fun unless they’re destroying their company on a 32 core 64 gpu $999 price tag monster console that’s years and years ahead of anything one could grab retail.

Bright article detailing the real issues with iOS moving forward. Surprisingly it has little to do with Skeuomorphism and plenty to do with how apps interplay with each other. Via (counternotions)

This isn’t looking good at all for Microsoft. It’s not a tablet and not a notebook but a compromise of both it seems. And everything suffers for it. I really wish Microsoft pulled out all the stops on this one, but it seems they can’t get something as simple as a software update service working […]

This is huge. Jony Ive to take on the leadership role of human interface as well as industrial design. Huge task for one man. Via (Apple)
