A rather dated version of Play Store in "Blackhat"!

Looks like they're running some XDA customization of it though with that dark description block.

“Downton Abbey” is the undoubted flagship of the genteel re-invasion, and embodies the newfound complacency of its home nation. The show presents history precisely as we wish it to be: well-spoken and picturesque, and largely lacking any actual history. It reduces a country that governed a quarter of the world’s land surface to an antique diorama entirely populated by good families and their horses.

The show has greatly profited from the TV version of what happens to British people when they enter the United States—i.e., it’s been donated 40 IQ points it does not possess. Remaining largely unawarded in its home country, it is the most decorated foreign TV show in U.S. history. This speaks to pathologies in both nations: In Britain, nothing so much fun is allowed to be good, whereas in the United States, fancy accents and exquisite production design automatically connote high artistic merit.
British television is indulging in a vast, slow spasm of nostalgia.

The first season was quite good, but by the end, and for the rest of the run, it was as stupid as any other prime time soap. It was Dallas with a pinky up.

But for someone who was embarrassed by the sloppiness of the Alabama DPS and NCIC, he was about to be tripped up by his own sloppiness. Like the hacks that had come before it, Higinio released the information in a web page which contained some ASCII art, a video, and a picture of Kylie from the neck down holding a sign that said "PwNd by wOrmer & CabinCr3w <3 u BiTch's!" The picture was taken with Kylie's iPhone and she had location services turned on. This meant that location data was embedded in every picture she took. Higinio meant to scrub the image of metadata, but he must have uploaded the wrong image, because soon people were contacting him to say "Hey bro, this has metadata on it."

Two digits is the right answer, of course.

+Tore Julø It does look a lot like him. It would be nice if he did another Hunter involved film. The Rum Diary was a good film, but not exactly a brilliant send-off.

Business development, marketing, sales and the like all benefit from ad hoc conversations and team work (and banter). Open plan enables this and is therefore a strong positive for that type of work in my experience.

Coding, designing, legal drafting, accounts and other individual work usually benefits from quiet isolation to enable focused concentration, with break out areas for rest, collaboration and creativity.

Offices that provide these function-specific spaces are optimal and it's true to say one size certainly does not fit all.

At least, that's what General Consideration told me.

Oh man. Someone is really missing the glory days of the skeuomorphic design.
In the early 2010s, the design industry became increasingly aware that designing both web and native applications would require more effort than it had previously. It is argued that before one could achieve market success with a one size fits all desktop or mobile application or website. Designers today are compelled to adapt their designs to multiple display sizes. It is not just traditional laptops and desktops that need to be taken...

The guy is just totally off the mark. I'm sure there are designers that can afford to spend hours in Photoshop and Illustrator making assets for a particular design theme but not everyone has the time or budget to do that. UIs that are extensible to multiple screen sizes using system assets/default built-in design themes allow even small scale developers to make modern looking apps without having to spend a lot of time on matters of design (where your particular tastes aren't guaranteed to match your users taste).
