The plague of perfectionism -- when what you do is never good enough for yourself or for someone around you. Does Apple suffer from it? Do you? Georgia and Rene discuss what it is, why it can negatively people, and tools to help you identify and deal with perfectionistic tendencies, and why gadgets may not always be your friend. This is ZENandTECH!
Marc, Seth, and Rene iterate through the Google makeover and Google+ takeover, the geometry of major mobile platforms, Nokia's N9 UX, layer style gradients, excessive hover states, the 10:3:1 rule, and interrogate James Cuda of Savage Interactive, makers of Procreate for iPad.
Like the spinning hourglass or beachball on a computer, our heads can get stuck stuck thinking the same negative thoughts over and over again. This week on ZENandTECH, Georgia and Rene discuss ways to figure out why you're perseverating and how you can deal with it.
