A couple of weeks ago I talked about the new POP app and all its wonder in getting your mobile concept out of your head and onto paper.
It gets better. I just came across this beautiful little tool set, sneakpeekit. These wonderful people have created free downloadable templates for your sketches. Use them to sketch a concept or get all pixel-precise and math it out with a grid system. They have templates for mobile, pads and browsers.
Now, I’m thinking if you pair these two together, you’re golden, right?
Durable, reliable quality and inexpensive: Nokia 105. The really disruptive aspect of this phone is that it costs 15 Euros. Great for a first phone or a second phone to take to the beach or a run. It has an impressive standby time exceeding 30 days. There wasn’t significant rework on the Ux other than driving changes for the color display, FM radio Ux and a few other minor elements. This is an evolution of the S30 base pattern.
Thesis: You can innovate at low cost.

This is so true, sometimes simplicity is the key. I like this,it’s great for NS.
With most products, there is a cost-quality tradeoff…
If you ever find something that is both inexpensive and high quality, that’s the kind of discovery that makes Priceonomics tingle with happiness. The Victorinox Fibrox chef’s knife is that kind of product.
Mailbox pushes the envelope (get it?) for apps aiming to make email sane. It is a brand new email client based on mobile gestures aiming to make email suck less and help you get to Inbox Zero. Mailbox has been called “the best email management app you’ll ever use.”
this is so impressive, from design to undesign. I love the part where Johnathan Ive shared on the battery indicator, when it’s not needed, it shouldn’t be there. Amazing how design is begin use in everyday of our life.
As I go through lesson for Week 1, I reach the part of adding designer into the co-founding team. It used to be just a Hustler and a Technical geek, Now the startup dream team is made up of a Designer, a Hustler and a Geek.
