Bob Burrough who co-created the iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch has been working on reflecting your live environment in your iPhone’s user interface.
“An environmental user interface takes information from a device’s surroundings and uses it to render physically-accurate things on the screen. It appears as if the lights around you are shining on the things on the screen. If the lighting in your room is bright, then the things on your screen are brightly lit.”
“That’s why we’ve built User Testing directly into the Marvel platform! In just a few clicks you can connect with users and record, replay and analyse how they interact with your designs and prototypes.”
I am frequently asked by aspiring chefs, dreamers young and old, attracted by the lure of slowly melting shallots and caramelizing pork belly, or delusions of Food Network stardom, if they should go to culinary school. I usually give a long, thoughtful, and qualified answer.
Good food, good eating, is all about blood and organs, cruelty and decay. It’s about sodium-loaded pork fat, stinky triple-cream cheeses, the tender thymus glands and distended livers of young animals.
It’s about danger—risking the dark, bacterial forces of beef, chicken, cheese, and shellfish.
Your first two hundred and seven Wellfleet oysters may transport you to a state of rapture, but your two hundred and eighth may send you to bed with the sweats, chills, and vomits.
