Thoughtful post from Chris Clark on the changes Apple made in iOS 7, the realities of the design languages old and new, and what it means for developers and designers. From his Release Candidate One blog:
In today's digitally driven world, it's easy to take hundreds, even thousands of photos a month to store on our devices and share through social networks, but many of us rarely get physical prints any more. Now you can bring custom prints back into your home and workspaces with DeepSquare Prints by Static Pixels. These eco-friendly photos are printed directly onto recycled cardboard and look amazing considering they don't use high-quality photo paper (that are also ridden with toxic chemicals). Being cardboard, DeepSquare prints are also eye-catching and resemble canvas standouts.
If you live anywhere in the European Union, you'll be glad to know that starting next year, you will no longer be charged mobile roaming fees anywhere within the EU. The change, which may go into effect as soon as July of 2014, would apply to voice calls, texting, and data according to The Telegraph.

During E3, Gameloft announced the latest iteration of their long-standing racing series, Asphalt 8: Airborne. Asphalt 8 introduces a new aerial element where you're launching your car off ramps to do freakin' sweet spins and flips. It's basically mixing in Tony Hawk with your classic racing game.
The most frequently repeated joke at WWDC about the new Mac Pro is that it looks like a trashcan or a cigarette tray. There's nothing trashy about it: it looks more like a jet turbine - an example of form following function so evident throughout Jony Ive's design catalog.
Live from WWDC 2013 I sat down with Dalton Caldwell and got a State of the App.net -- everything from the current and varied crop of micro-blogging clients to the new messaging apps and photo mashups to what ADN could do better and where they're headed in the future. It's refreshing to see a social platform that's happy to be the platform and not need to own every bit of interface and idea in the space.
It's a hefty 10 minutes, so grab a refreshing beverage, hit play, and enjoy.
Deus Ex: The Fall was announced at E3 2013, and we got a little time to check it out on the show floor. Those that have already played Human Evolution will feel right at home - you'll find plenty of action, stealth, and cybernetic upgrades to enjoy, as well as a rich dystopian storyline that ties in tightly with the canon.
