Great examples of how a few simple (Material) design changes can make a big impact.  Well done +Koushik Dutta
 
Some before/after screenshots of the AllCast Material redesign. I'll also be bloglaring about the stuff I've open sourced to fill some gaps in the v7-appcomat library.

Redesign concepts courtesy of +Liam Spradlin.

Evan Hecox - is a rockstar

My friend Evan Hecox has a showing at the Joshua Liner Gallery in NY right now.  The detail in his art is not apparent in photographs - and seeing them in person is a real treat.

Evan is a super star, and continues to do great stuff.

I have always loved his work, this Volkswagen commercial is one of my all-time favorites:

During recent Android app clinics I hosted and/or attended, I started noticing developers/designers implement some common UX flaws and found myself questioning if they know how to do proper UX.
Some of those Android applications I’ve seen are really well thought out from a technical point of view, but lack good UX.

So maybe I should share some techniques/tips on how to improve the UX.

Mentoring Startups at ILovation

Thanks to the Startup Launch program for the opportunity to attend this event in New York.  Met some great startup teams, and hopefully gave them some good advice.

Use VPN when on public WIFI

Had a discussion with +E John Feig this weekend, and he reminded me about the security pitfalls in public WIFI, and how I should use VPN.

This was great advice - and I found a highly rated VPN provider (with all the bells and whistles relating to security, exit-points, and anonymity), at a very reasonable cost.  Excited to have this additional layer of security.

My new mechanic. They were able to fix a problem (which I thought was going to be much bigger) by taking their time, and using intuition (and knowledge of Honda's) to fix it. The dealer I used to go to (now replaced by my "new mechanic") couldn't fix the problem. It was quick, easy, and in-expensive, and I knew they weren't trying to sell me extra stuff. It is clear this is an honest, family business, and it is my pleasure to work with them.

I had an issue with my Lexus RX400h, and dealt with Adam, and his vendors. Everything was super straightforward, honest, and pleasant. I will never buy a car anywhere other than Goldies. Why would you deal with sleazy car salesmen, when these guys are around (and are honest and straightforward).
