Let's talk about how this white FAB (yep, look for it..) doesn't stand out in this screen even though the "+" icon within it has all these pretty colors.

First of all, the FAB and most of the UI is white so the circle shape only has a shadow to separate itself from everything else.

Secondly, the FAB's whitespace/surface is probably one of the smallest area's of white in this screenshot.

Thirdly, the Topics graphic and logo's are bigger and have at least as many colors as the "+" icon, making them more prominent than the FAB.

Lastly: it's positioned at the bottom right. According to F-pattern, that's the last place your eyes will go to. If the FAB is a dominant element in the UI - by using bright color, high contrast and/or a large surface area, it would probably still catch your eye. The F-pattern isn't a holy grail, we're trained to spot dominant elements just like we're trained to scan a UI from left to right, top to bottom. Sadly, Google seems to have forgotten all of these principles and just paints everything white "because branding".

The FAB doesn't even animate into (or out of) the view when you open it or scroll through the content. Movement is yet another way to catch the eye of a user (and pretty much any animal for that matter) but sadly, it isn't used.

There's a big update coming to the Google Assistant for iOS and Android today. Google is resurrecting the predictive Google Now cards that used to exist in the pre-assistant era, and the company is sticking them in the Google Assistant interface.

Interesting article about how Google created a 60 fps endless scrolling photo gallery.

“Als jij ziet: hé, mijn vader zit in het leger en hij heeft een huis, en zijn broer is advocaat en zit in de gevangenis, dan motiveert dat kinderen om later voor een militaire carrière te kiezen. In Eritrea zie je bijvoorbeeld dat kinderen soms al op 7-jarige leeftijd de keus maken om in het leger te gaan.”

Voor wie het nog niet kent: Brexit is een absurdistische sketchshow, geheel in de traditie van eerdere Britse series als Monty Python en Keeping up Appearances. De serie speelt zich af in in een wereld waarin de Engelsen anno 2018 in de waan leven dat ze een wereldrijk zijn. Het lijkt een subtiele uitvergroting van de realiteit, maar heeft gigantische gevolgen voor de politieke stabiliteit van het land. De grootheidswaanzin van de hoofdrolspelers doet soms pijn aan je ogen, maar laat je op de grond rollen van het lachen.

Goed om te horen dat ze verder gaan. Erg vermakelijke soap, al klinkt het verhaal toch wel een beetje onrealistisch.

Microsoft is also adding in extended line ending support so that Unix/Linux line endings (LF) and Macintosh line endings (CR) are supported in Notepad

Halleluja! 👍

I know this video focuses on Alexa but.. why not get a Google Home (Mini), a chromecast and hook up some good speakers to your TV?

People have some good speakers hooked up to their tv, I hope? Or are they watching movies and series on their 60" 4K tv with crappy sound qiality??

So.. why buy a soundbar just for music? Why use Alexa if it can't even talk to your Firestick (which doesn't have Youtube) without talking into your remote?

Why is this video about Alexa..??!
