Looks really cool. Would love to play around with this though it would probably not be that useful for me in real life.
 
So here's a preview of a little something we've been working on... ;-D

Congratulations team! The team's been working furiously on this for quite a while, so it's big relief to be able to announce! Can you guess when we first planted the seeds?

Is this an idea of what the next #Mac  OS X version after Mavericks will look like?

I made this to see how the flat #ios7 -design would look like applied to Mac OS. And I think the result is not too bad. Something like this is also not too unlikely to happen! Especially the dock looked much the same on Mac OS and on #iOS  up to now and I think #Apple   probably wants to continue this.

What are your thoughts about this? Do you think the iOS7 design would do well in Mac OS?

Why the Pixel does make sense and what differs Google from its competitors

From the beginning on nobody had an idea what kind of purpose Google wanted to fill with Chrome OS. The idea of a full OS only running web-applications seemed strange at first, but due to the recently released Chromebooks, the ongoing evolution of the internet and clouds becoming reality, we at least know that you can work with Chrome OS and that it got a future. But since first rumors of touchable Chromebooks came up, it's all again looking strange and not understandable.

After Google officially announced the Pixel, one of the main questions is why Google makes kind of a competitor for Android. But I don't think they do so. The thing is just that Google hasn't got the same aim as for example Microsoft got. Android is still for free and the key business of Google is still the spread of their services and tools; not earning money by selling the OS. That's where Google got a big advantage over all of their competitors. And so I think Google is just about to built another OS with deep integration of their services. The Pixel is still a different category than Android is, but even if it would be the same: As long as Google could at least reach some new customers, it would make sense to build such a device.

So in my opinion Google is much more everything at once than Microsoft with Windows 8. While the latter are trying to achieve being this by creating one OS for every device (which is at least also no bad idea), Google is consolidating this with every new device connected to the web, and even more with each new OS having a deep integration of their tools from beginning on. That's where Google got an advantage over Microsoft and Co., who haven't got a such far developed bunch of services yet - even if they're working on it. And that's probably also one thing which will be even more important in future.

I guess it was quitly brilliant by Microsoft releasing #Socl  to public on these days. At least it's probably the only place on earth, where  #DroidRage  really exists...

Just released an updated and heavily redesigned version of my homepage!
 
We've made a few changes to our website these days.

Though it's still not responsive and only usable on the desktop, the design is much more uniform all over the different segments now, as well as more unique for and affiliated to this particular site at all.

Most notably are in my opinion the new, more finished and 'playful' navigation bar, the many new blue accents all over the page and the re-structured "Applications" page.

Check it out at http://Viewout.net

Hope you like it too! Any form of feedback is appreciated :)

Up next: Rovio, EA and others join Nguyen. Reports suggest companies will already start pulling all of their 'addictive' games this afternoon. Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft will stop selling consoles immediatly. People all over the world are happy now as nobody actually realized that these games were addictive...

It's for your own good, apparently
Indie developer Dong Nguyen has broken his silence following the sudden removal of his popular Flappy Bird game recently. In an interview with Forbes, Nguyen says the game was originally designed...

Google+ Games to be shut down

Just discovered that besides the 41 updates , Games will finally been shut down in less than two months. I guess it's very unlikely that they'll therefore give us a similar new service. Even when Facebook now has got one thing missing at #Google+, the number of users playing social media games is decreasing anyway. - And with all the Google Play Games-stuff presented yesterday, Google+ is going to be a great place for (especially mobile) games in future anyway!

Will in future user interfaces all be the same again?

Just a few years ago the most common OSs, including Mac OS, Windows and even some Linux distributions, had a very similar interface. So at least the key features as for example a desktop, windows with a menu bar at the top, another general bar at the bottom and so on, had been available in nearly all of them. But that changed with the rise of smartphones. Of course iOS and Android are still looking pretty similar, but Microsoft however is trying to succeed with a completely different, new interface. I'm just thinking of the new start-screen, live-tiles, charms, lateral scrolling... So I'm really asking myself whether the current available choice of different UIs will remain in future or whether one interface will kind of win the battle and in ten years we're all going to work with live tiles for example.

I guess this highly depends on the mobile market share. When Microsoft for example will still have just a few percents on mobile market in five years, then they're probably going to orientate much more on their competitors ideas and maybe even drop the whole Metro-style idea. The same vice versa if for example Google or Apple will loose too much users. But when every platform would have for example a quarter of market share, they would not drop their ideas and guidelines, but try to point the advantages of their interfaces even more out to gain the majority of users. So at last I really have no clue what would be the better option. Of course a big variety of different OSs and ideas would be great, but this would also lead to a lot of problems.

Story
Tagline
New is good.
Introduction
Interested in all things related to technology, especially in consumer electronics, user interfaces and software.

You can find a lot of articles of mine on my homepage http://viewout.net

You may also like to follow my G+ page http://Google.com/+ViewoutNet

I'm also interested in coding, knowing how to work with HTML and CSS, PHP and especially also Javascript. I'm by no means a real (professional) programmer (yet), but it's really great fun building all kinds of different things. I've sadly been coding a bit less recently, focusing my spare time on other projects.

Thanks for circling, sharing and plussing me and my posts!
