I’m liking the dark menus.. Dearly wish for 10.10.1 to release soon.
Weather application interfaces must be a basic problem that all intermediate-level UI-folks have to solve. There’s a wide-range of precise numerical data, but transmuting that data into a quick, non-quantitive “how is it going to feel?” seems difficult to do in an interesting way.
A couple of apps display forecasts as an animated movie that best represents the weather. It’s a cool idea. According to Clear Day, the record heat wave that’s bearing down on the Southwest this weekend is going to include heavy torrents of stellar plasma
followed by a supernova on Sunday.
Stay cool out there!
I switched over to Vienna as my main feedreader once the Great Google Reader Diaspora began. Until there’s an obvious choice in alternate feedreading-with-sync market, I’m back to the old era of downloading feeds directly. As a relucantly-former NetNewsWire and Reeder user, I’m damn impressed with how snappy Vienna loads everything.
LucidaGraphite is a Vienna style-sheet based off of the FeedLight style. I prefer Lucida Grande in black as my primary body text font and, well, perhaps someone else would like it too.
