Show Notes:

  • Introduction
    • talks about why I wanted to start an English podcast too. I already have a Swedish podcast to complement my English YouTube channel.
    • I also talk about why I think the short-form could be great for some users. For example when you don't have time to listen to long podcasts.
    • this podcast will give you the latest news and rumors in audio form as a compliment to my YouTube videos.
      • podcasts is great when you want to multitask. You can't do that when watching videos or reading. But with podcasts you can. You can listen to podcasts when driving, making dinner, running, workout, cleaning the house, working and much more. That's not possible with other content.
    • I also talk about how often I will publish this new podcast
  • Opinion
    • I talk about how I record this podcast, and that I use the excellent iOS app opinion to do it. Opinion is also a podcast hosting service where you can upload your podcast for free directly from the app with just a click of a button! Awesome.
  • Where you can find the new podcast
    • I will use my website at www.svartling.net to publish and marketing this new podcast
    • I will also create a dedicated page on the site for my English and Swedish podcasts, so you easily can subscribe to them and find all the episodes. I haven't done that yet though, it's on my to-do list in Evernote.
  • Feedback
    • You can send me feedback by email to Svartling@gmail.com or on Twitter.
    • You can also send in questions and tips as audio files to me, so that I can add them to a podcast. That way you can be in one of the episodes. I will of course link to you and talk about where they can follow you if you like.
    • Please give this Podcast a review in iTunes if you like it. It would help me a lot.

Why Samsung's design sucks and why design is important

This just nails it. If a company don't care about the details, then how much more is it that they don't care about? This proves how little Samsung cares about the customer. And this proves why Apple always has the world's best user experience and that Samsung can't even succeed as a copycat….

And look at the sticker at the top! Seriously, a sticker? It's hilarious!

To align everything along the edge of a device takes designing and mounting the boards in a certain way, and the ports and speakers, and the buttons and jacks, and the grills and every other detail so they all line up at exactly the right place at the end. Painstaking is likely an understatement.

Is it worth the effort? For me, as a customer, knowing that Apple had the consideration and took the time and effort to align their hardware speaks to the overall quality of their work. It reassures me that the same consideration and effort were likely spent making sure not a millimeter nor milliamp of battery space was wasted, not a nanometer of die, not a gap left around the screen, or a dead zone in the capacitive sensor.
