The Differences: UX vs. CX
While most designers directly influence the UX, they also need to understand the larger context of the CX. The customer experience represents every step of the journey from when users are running price comparisons, to when users try the product, to when users may resort to customer service if their needs aren’t met.
User experience is not the same as customer experience.

A great video explaining the Gravitational Waves which have confirmed Einstein’s Theory
Scientists say they heard the faint chirp of two black holes colliding a billion light-years away, fulfilling Einstein’s general theory of relativity.

Frequency Separation in Photoshop 
Chances are you have already learned what Frequency Separation (FS) technique is, as it became mainstream in the past few years. However, many FS technique users actually know very little theory behind it, thus have little control over its implementation. I've set out to research and collect all the important and useful information about it, so we can together learn how to become better at it.

How a biology student turned images of deadly viruses into art

We usually only pay attention to viruses when they're making us sick or ravaging large swaths of humanity. We don't often wonder at their intricate structures or admire their symmetrical beauty.

That's what makes Eleanor Lutz's homage to viruses so striking. A PhD student in biology at the University of Washington by day and graphic artist by night, Lutz was inspired to pay tribute to viruses when she realized how "surprisingly symmetrical" they are. "I love them because they remind me of a biological version of snowflakes," she writes.

I agree +Andrew Hill they have good competition. I've also tried them before and thought it wasn't worth the hype but was decent enough. I more happy about the investment from overseas for such a product.

I wear hats, not ties. I open doors for ladies, bully around pixels. Enjoy exercise and training, but have a devout relationship with my couch. I live to design and my job is awesome, that's it... no flip-side to it... to design is to create, to create is to be god like, can't seriously complain.
Introduction

I have become rather enveloped in the social media wave as well as the explosive tech industry that has come about in the last few years, most of my tech thoughts are published on memeburn.

Also as a side note, a Designer, Photoshop junkie, stalker of internet trends, utterly addicted to Google. Oh yeah, and in love with my iPhone

Have Bachelors Degree in Graphic Design specialising in Advertising. Now I know thats practically saying I’m good at making pretty pictures that lie to you, but I swear I’m one of the good guys… honest… no really… stop looking at me like that…

I have accumulated experience in both print and web media over the years working with and pitching to a wide range of clients from CocaCola and FNB to local fashion designers and Chamber Orchestra of Johannesburg.

In 2010 I started Mind Camp Technologies with great developer colleague Joaquim Rodrigues and we have been helping a wide, and some times weird, variety of clients with their digital needs.

I like iL Capo in mostly due to the good pizza, the Don Lucky is really great and highly recommend it. The prices are reasonable and the vibe is friendly. Unfortunately they play loud live Afrikaans folk music on the weekends so only go during the week when I want a cheat meal or something. If that's your thing enjoy ;-)

We really love Trattoria Renato, it's like finding a little treasure around the corner you really should have noticed earlier. They make delicious pizza's, I highly recommend the Quattro Stagioni, (AKA a four seasons). I have no idea what it is but I can tell you the dough they use is some how different than the average pizzeria. Inside feels like a little piece of Italy, not over the top décor just nice enough to feel comfortable and relaxed while in a softly lit ambiance heated by an old school oven. Oh before I forget as a strange but cool quirk if you do take-away they don't cut the pizza it some how helps for transport apparently, so if you'd like it pre cut as I do you must ask.

Boy was this place packed from day one! This cafe is attached to what I'm told is now the largest Woolworths in South Africa. The vibe is trendy and busy but that could be because it had just opened but the service was very professional (touch slow, but again it was busy). Delicious food, but then we all know were the ingredients come from ;-) The new idea (at least to me) that I really liked was the 'W To Go' tuckshop type opening on the side of the building which allows those of us in the office blocks nearby to catch a quick caffeine fix on our way to work without having to walk in and out of the mall.

Really exquisite coffee and the breakfast menu is good. But it's the really chilled, open, relaxed vibe there that makes you want to come back. We chose to make Olivia's our Parkrun coffee place (from Albert's Farm) so you will see a bunch of people fresh and lively every Saturday morning coming to replenish their muscles on a well deserved delectable meal and yummy cappuccino.

Great Steak house!!! I had a delicious Egg and Bacon Burger which was massive and filled me up (I couldn't even finish the chips) and my SO had a Lady Fillet which I took a bit of and, lets just say these guys know what they are doing when it comes to steak. They have a great old-school pub vibe, the kind of place that reminded me of the show Cheers with the "where everyone knows your name" kind of culture, many regulars and old friends get together for a drink ,and some good food. The parking doesn't seem adequate (best kind of problem for them I guess) but seriously after 7pm you'll have to park across the road.

Stunning, stunning design! I just love this place. I really like that Exclusive books have made their own cafe and they have done it really well! My favourite is the typography above the busy baristas (who are very friendly). The coffee is good and comes from this oldschool massive industrial machine that looks like it was made in the 1950's. My only issue is they don't serve more food, they only have small things like cookies and muffins but I can understand that would require a kitchen.

No bacon :-( sadly the Macon just doesn't make the burgers as awesome or frankly even close. The location is good, with easy access from Beyer's Naude and there is always parking outside. The staff are as friendly as any takeaway place I guess. They, as many steers seem to do now, have a fish takeaway (I forget the name) connected to them so you can order from both if say your partner prefers seafood.
