Neven Mrgan's tumbl: "Wrong"

mrgan:

Just about the most asinine, presumptuous, hubris-filled thing a designer can say is that someone else’s design is “wrong”. That word is reserved for judgments of absolute truth or ethical guidance; for flawed mathematical proofs and crimes. And yet, allow me to declare the following: Jony Ive’s…

This is something I noticed immediately too - a grid isn’t bad, but the proportionality is all off. Isn’t it still off with the grid as boundaries though?

Tethering your iPad to your iPhone with QuasiDisk


QuasiDisk, if you happened to grab it when it was still in the App Store, allows you to tether without jail breaking your iDevice. However, it was previously only useful for laptop to iDevice tethering because it can’t create an adhoc network.

In a pinch, you can now use it for tethered browsing via Bluetooth.

Software:
QuasiDisk
Bluetooth Share (on both devices)
iCab mobile Browser


Steps:
On both devices turn Bluetooth on
In iCab settings on your iPad, put your QuasiDisk proxy settings for http in the Proxy section
Open BT Share on both devices
Pair the devices via the Bluetooth option in the bottom right
On the iPhone switch to QuasiDisk, turn it on
On the iPad, switch to iCab and browse away, now tethered

The downsides are that it’s browser only, QuasiDisk times out occasionally needing to be restarted, and the Bluetooth connection drops if it’s not active.

The ThoughtWorks Studios Agile ALM Whitepaper

"ALM" tends to be a buzzword that many people don’t understand.  In fact, the Wikipedia definition is even pretty weak.  ALM isn’t the application of business management practicess to software development.  In fact, I think the last two decades have proven that the old model of tool vendors pushing prescriptive software development models doesn’t work.  We’re defining Agile ALM as “toolsmithing” - the application of tools to support people and the processes they need to work best.
